The online shop of Japan’s largest discount store, Don Quijote, is now delivering to the Philippines!
The discount chain made the announcement last March 15, 2021, on its Facebook page. According to them, it was due to insistent demand that they decided to expand its delivery service to cater to Filipinos, who love shopping in Don Quijote for inexpensive tax-free souvenirs, grocery items, and knick-knacks from Japan.
Simply create an account on the Don Quijote Online Shop, select “Philippines” as your country, and shop away!
Currently, there are two delivery options available: via EMS (express mail service) and Surface Mail International Parcel (delivery by sea). Payments must be done by credit card. Note that your total bill will include freight charges.
In July 2019, news that Don Quijote might open a store in the Philippines made headlines after it was reported by Nikkei Asian Review that the discount chain is eyeing to increase its overseas stores to 200 from the existing 41 that included international branches located in Singapore, Thailand, and Hawaii. It was never confirmed nor denied.
