KHON2: Newly renovated Haleiwa Store Lots to hold grand opening

The newly renovated Haleiwa Store Lots is already open.

Now, a public grand opening will make it official.

The event will take place on Saturday, May 2, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It’s free and open to the public.

Light refreshments will be provided, along with entertainment by Kamehameha Schools’ student halau and musical guests.

The celebration marks the completion of a community revitalization project in Haleiwa Town, part of an overall North Shore plan by Kamehameha Schools.

The 27,000-square-foot open-air retail center is the result of a two-year planning process that involved close collaboration with many kupuna, long-time North Shore residents and community leaders. The design reflects their vision to retain Haleiwa’s character.

Ninety-five free parking stalls were included in the development.

Sixteen stores are now open: Matsumoto Shave Ice, Whaler’s General Store, Haleiwa Fruit Stand, Clark Little Gallery, Global Creations, Greenroom Hawaii, Guava Shop, Island Vintage Coffee, Kahala Sportswear, Mahina, Mailikukahi Hale Kamehameha Schools North Shore Information Center, Malibu Shirts, Spam Hawaii, Splash! Hawaii, T&C Surf and Teddy’s Bigger Burgers.

In the coming months, four merchants will open, including Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Advantage Realty North Shore, Fatboy’s, Rajanee Thai Cuisine and Uncle Bo’s Pupu Bar & Grill.

All are locally operated, per the community’s request, and revenue generated from Haleiwa Store Lots will fund educational opportunities throughout the state.
