If you’ve walked around a shopping mall during this COVID time, you’ve seen the desolation firsthand. Very little customers and permanently closed stores are common sights. So much so that here are nine business that have gone bankrupt: NPC International (Pizza Hut, Wendy’s) Lucky Brand Brooks Brothers Sur La Table Muji RTW Retailwinds Heritage Brands […]
Hmmm, should I be insulted since I did NOT win the Adidas raffle for the new Yeezy 380 “Blue Oats?” I learned that the reflective version was very limited, but I didn’t consider that this non-reflective version would be difficult to get. And even though Adidas held a raffle, I thought winning one would be […]
This topic is going to be subjective with differing points of view, but I just wanted to voice my disappointment with Polar Cop. Described as software “redefining iOS checkout automation,” this software went on sale publicly this morning. But due to its popularity, the launch was beset with technical problems and was delayed. Sadly we […]

I know that selling pools on the mainland is very lucrative as the heat of summer and isolation of COVID-19 prevails. But I didn’t think pool selling would be popular in Hawaii since we’re essentially in the pool called the Pacific Ocean. But after seeing this in Target going to a single customer, pool selling […]
Going through Amazon Photos with unlimited storage for Prime members, I came across this picture of Nitrogenie opening at Ala Moana. This photo is dated November, 15, 2015 (and taken with an iPhone 6). Don’t recall how long they lasted, but lines were long for some time.
While shops continue to reopen at Ala Moana, many still remain closed. So when shopping at Ala Moana, it doesn’t have the same feel to it. Returning shoes at Footlocker, you are greeted by these signs and maybe a line if there are more than 15 customers inside. The inside of the Starbucks Reserve is […]
If you need some variety in your cravings during these Rona times, be sure to check out Halfsies Cookie Company. Based in New York, these guys churn out cookies daily that sell out in a matter of seconds. If you want them, you gotta move fast, and they do ship throughout the US. Though costing […]
Who woke up this morning with lotsa love from Footlocker in their inbox? There are a few more… 47 emails from customercare to be exact. But no, these are not individual orders with a status update. All these emails are for two orders, but I guess Footlocker Customer Care really wanted to keep me informed […]
