OOMOMO to open new store in former TGI Fridays space in Metrotown

Dec 12 2019, 12:48 pm

Still looking for something special for someone on your gift list this Christmas? If it’s a gift you can usually only find from Japan, OOMOMO‘s brand new store at Metropolis at Metrotown might have just the thing.

The grand opening on Sunday, December 15 is sure to be an exciting time for anyone who appreciates Japanese products that are as cute as they are practical. It’s also big news for frequenters of Metrotown who have seen the space that was previously occupied by TGI Friday’s stand dormant for seven years.

The first 200 customers through the door on the grand opening day will receive a free $10 cash voucher and be entered for a chance to win $100 in the Gara Gara Lucky Draw. There’s even going to be a Taiko Japanese drums performance.

OOMOMO is named after the Japanese term for “big peach” (which symbolizes “blessing” in Japanese). The stores already have a Canada-wide presence in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, and Ontario — including Vancouver stores in Chinatown, Burnaby, and Richmond.

The brand prides itself on delivering products and service based on the values “discover,” “inspire,” and “learn.” OOMOMO has over 30,000 products — many of which come straight from the homeland. Forget booking your flight, you can find some of the best of Japanese culture right here in Vancouver.

At OOMOMO, you’ll really feel like you’re in Japan. As a bonus, you can take some of that culture home with you, whether it’s a Japanese trinket, innovative household item, beauty product, or accessory for your office, kitchen, or living space.

What’s more, this place has the cutest stationery we’ve ever seen. And did we mention all the Japanese snacks (gasp) like chips, chocolate, and candies and iconic Japanese drinks like Ramune Soda and Calpico?

Did someone say kawaii? Here are some of the awesome Japanese products you can find at Metrotown’s brand new store.
