Not too long ago, the Starbucks location in the heart of Kailua town closed for renovation. That was then, this is now. Regular patrons, what do you notice right away? Yes, you have to retrain your brain and walk to the far end to place your order. It’s no longer the drink pickup area that’s […]

The new year has spurred on new small local businesses in Kailua with the opening of The Local and soon, Mahaloha Burger. Located down the street from the new Target, these businesses are poised to benefit from increased foot traffic in the area. The Local is a hybrid store selling clothing items in one half […]
Don’t believe the Starbucks online store locator for the Kailua Village location (Store 14494). It’s not open. It’s closed for renovation. Not sure when it started and not sure when it’ll end, but as of March 10, 2015, the location was definitely closed.
The Target location in Kailua had their soft opening today with the grand opening scheduled for Sunday, March 8. Open to the general public for the first time, the people of Hawaii didn’t disappoint. There was an expected line to get in as many thought today was the official grand opening. The shopping carts were […]
The newest Target in Kailua is set to open this week, and here are a few more pictures before the opening.
The wind’s been whipping through Hawaii this Valentine’s weekend causing all kinds of damage. Check out the Windward side. Fence down. More missing fence sections around the corner.

The sign is officially up – COMING SOON. And “Coming Soon” for the Target location in Kailua actually means two months with the opening set for March 8, 2015. It’s been a long time in the making with first rumblings of Target taking over the Don Quijote location back in 2009. Over this six-year journey, […]
And I’m okay. All around Hawaii, the Department of Health placards on are display at restaurants, and I actually found a location with a conditional pass aka “the yellow card.” The areas of improvement dealt with food temperatures and cross contamination of food (not sure what that means). But I’m here to say that after […]
The new Target location in Kailua is slowly coming together. I had a hidden hope that the store would be ready by year’s end, but there’s still a lot of work to be done. But the store is shaping up and looks on target to open in March of 2015. The bonus part? The interior […]
The new year of 2015 in Kailua will be one without Zippys. This local staple is temporarily closing its doors for renovations for 6 months starting after the holidays. So if you got some benefit chili tickets, be sure to redeem them soon otherwise you have to go elsewhere for your pickup. Maybe President Obama […]
While it’s still some time before the Target in Kailua opens for business, its well known red logo is installed and is very visible. Never mind that there’s no sidewalk or parking lot currently.
With the GNC Store moving down the street nearby the UPS Store, their vacancy is being taken by SoHa Living. Yeah, there’s a Kailua vibe to this Kahala retailer.
