Japanese lifestyle store Tokyu Hands Inc, known in Japan as the go-to store for quirky homeware products and do-it-yourself items, is headed to Singapore.

In September, a 7,500 sq ft store will open at Westgate in Jurong East. It will be located on the first floor of the mall.

Tokyu Hands' arrival in Singapore marks the brand's growing expansion overseas. This is their second overseas store under the Tokyu Hands label, following the opening of its Shanghai outlet in 2012.

Fans of the general goods store have often raved about its quirky offerings such as typhoon-resistant umbrellas, socks for the legs of chairs and mobile phone charms.
