People in Japan have welcomed the news that things purchased at 100-yen stores can once again be bought with two coins.

“Sugoi ne,” said 47-year-old housewife Yumiko Kobayashi.

“Yesterday, I had to hand over at least five coins if I wanted to purchase a Hello Kitty item at a 100-yen store with correct change.”

Items from 100-yen stores like Daiso which have cheeky 200- or 300-yen tags attached to them that people only realize once they get to the counter will still require more than two coins.

“Sugoi ne,” says Kobayashi.

In other news, life will now be 2% worse, minus the benefits of two-coin purchases at 100-yen shops.
