Shoppers search for bargains Tuesday at the recently opened Daiso Japan in the Westfield Galleria at Roseville shopping mall. Daiso is considered a “Japanese dollar store,” stocking thousands of items, most selling for $1.50 or less. Many items are produced in-house. A massive worldwide discount retailer with 2,800 branches in Japan and another 600 elsewhere, Daiso is a relatively small player in California. But that is changing. Thousands showed up for the new store’s opening day last month.
