Not sure when this happened but Ba-Le, a mainstay in Kailua for decades, is now closed. The storefront now looks like this. From its days in Don Quijote then moving down to Hekili Street, this franchise provided affordable and tasty Vietnamese sandwiches and other dishes. I loved their iced coffee ratcheted up caffeine levels. Sadly, the […]

I’m not quite sure how extensive it’ll be, but the only Ross in Kaneohe (for now) is being remodeled. The store is still open for business but the interior is changing around. Sections have moved and are crammed together while other areas have been cleared out. My shopping flow has been thrown off by all […]
I had thought Pier 1 in Kailua was a perfect match – the right merchandise for the right clientele. But I was wrong. Bon voyage Pier 1.
It’s now official though it seems Ross employees already knew, but a new Ross location is indeed opening at Windward Mall.
Is the Dress for Less Store headed to Windward Mall? If so, the last of the OG malls would have a Ross location. First was Pearlridge then Kahala. The Ala Moana location was a recent addition, and 2018 could welcome the former Sports Authority space in Windward Mall.
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.
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.
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?
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 […]
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 […]
Got delayed as President Obama rolled through the Windward side on Christmas Eve. Last aloha to President Obama’s annual visits to Hawaii.
Newly paved sidewalk is already and permanently marked with chicken feet tracks.
