Vestiges of Kailua Past

Over the weekend, I saw vestiges of Kailua’s past. The last existence of Quiznos was being erased as the former sub sandwich shop’s sign was painted over. As the renovation of Macy’s is still underway, part of the renovation uncovered its older past when Macy’s was Liberty House. Advertisements

Pieology Kailua Now Open

Don’t exactly know when the new Pieology in Kailua opened for business but have no doubt that they are open. Here’s the photographic evidence. You can find Pieology Kailua at 151 Hekili St. across the street from Target.

Target Kailua Now With More Self Service

I guess after a one-year learning session with these self checkout counters at Target Kailua, the time to expand was right. Now the self checkout counters have about doubled with the installation of another row. Amazingly, the traditional checkout counters manned by employees still have long queues. I guess business must be good?

Coming to Kailua: AT&T and GNC

Finally coming to Kailua is its own AT&T location. Previously, the closest location was in Kaneohe, but now Kailua residents can get serviced at the soon-to-open location near Times. Neighboring AT&T is the once-again relocated GNC. GNC was right across the street next to Starbucks and Jamba Juice then moved by UPS. And now its latest […]

Kailua Cinemas Good Enough

The movie theaters in Kailua continue its renovation as Kailua Cinemas. Over the years, these theaters have changed names, most recently known as Water Garden that showed older movies at reduced prices. But the phase has begun with Kailua Cinemas featuring luxury reclining seats. While the theater is open for business, the remodeling is still […]

Target Lineup for NES Classic

I can only guess that this lineup outside of Target Kailua is for the NES Classic that releases today. Seemingly limited availability is driving up demand for this nostalgic gaming system. I doubt everyone in line will be happy. This picture was taken at 7:45am. Update: The Kailua Target location had approximately 12 units available […]

The Curb Now in Kailua

Wow, the shakeup of small businesses in Kailua just doesn’t stop. Sadly, Island Yogurt is leaving the Windward neighborhood, but Bee & Tea from Chicago opened their first Hawaii store on the same Hekili Street. Also opening on Hekili is The Curb that’s “keeping it fresh, hot, and cool with intentional coffee.” Now I don’t quite understand […]

Bee & Tea Beckons the Age of Milk Tea in Kailua

So the Age of Froyo is done after a seven-year war. Following froyo is the Age of Milk Tea. Already popular in town, Kailua joins this era with the introduction of Bee & Tea. I won’t go into the store’s background and menu since you can read great coverage here and here. Only open one […]

Island Yogurt Kailua Closing

Went for some froyo today at Island Yogurt in Kailua only to see this sign. While we don’t froyo often, Island Yogurt was our go to spot with a variety of flavors and convenient parking. They’ve been there for several years (well as Orange Tree originally) but the rent just got too high. When the […]

Build Your Body at Volcanic Rock Gym

No, I’m no rock climber and didn’t know abou the Volcanic Rock Gym near Punahou and in Kailua. The smaller Kailua location is all about climbing. Featuring walls of varying heights and angles, this smallish space is maximized with challenges, and the climbers there are maxed out themselves. Every regular that came by was fit […]
