Why would anyone shop in Don Quijote?

Despite its claim to be “geki an”, you can get most of the stuff cheaper elsewhere. However, it could be the fact that there are usually a couple of real bargains hiding in its chaotic set up that make it “fun” to shop there, the adjective that my students almost always use to describe it. There are also a few things that you don’t see (much?) elsewhere. Personally, it is my definition of shopping hell.

    Thanks.

    As I hate shopping, I also try to avoid it as a topic of conversation, so didn’t know which pronunciation of the kanji it was.

    Anyway, the pronunciation doesn’t change the fact it isn’t true!

    I like Donki because it’s so stuffed, unorganized, and somehow wonderfully Japanese. Around my quarters, it’s also the cheapest for a lot of stuff.
