Daiso Singapore app tells shoppers how busy the store is before they visit

Daiso Singapore has established an online service to let customers know in advance which of its outlets are crowded.

The new website service – which builds on the brand’s previous crowding updates posted via Instagram – now allows customers to assess crowd levels before visiting any Daiso or Threeppy branch , allowing them to plan visits and avoid masses and queues.

Daiso’s crowd data is posted in two-hour blocks, grading crowding levels with coloured squares to provide information at a glance. Green squares indicate no crowding, while red squares show a store has reached maximum customer capacity.

On June 19, the $2 mega chain store attracted snaking queues upon reopening after the Singapore government’s lockdown to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Daiso Singapore currently operates 22 locations in Singapore.
