Foodland Kehalani to open Wednesday with deals and samples galore

June 24, 2014 - Carla Tracy

Foodland Super Market, Ltd. is Hawaii’s largest locally-owned and operated grocery retailer. It will open Foodland Kehalani in Wailuku at 11 a.m. on Wednesday and there will be hourly samplings and giveaways through Sunday.

It’s a giant of a store, too. The 35,000-square-foot Foodland will feature full-service seafood, meat, deli, bakery, produce and floral departments, as well as R. Field Wine Company, an in-store American Savings Bank and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf with a convenient drive-thru that will also be part of the new store layout.

“It's hard to believe that it's been 44 years since Foodland opened its first store on Maui,” said Jenai S. Wall, Foodland Chairman and CEO.  “And while much has changed in our community and stores since then, our commitment to taking care of our customers and providing them with a great place to shop remains the same. “We look forward to welcoming the community to Foodland Kehalani and hope it is a store that will make them proud.”
