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.
