With Hawaii’s Stay at Home, Work from Home emergency order in place, only businesses categorized as Essential Activies remain open. So when visiting Ala Moana, it’s eerily empty with only food vendors and restaurants allowed to operate. Even then, many chose to stay closed. The escalators were also shut down, assumedly to save on operations, […]

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 […]
Although Ala Moana shopping center is technically open for business, it’s not quite there yet. Many stores remain closed. The Apple Store is open, and there are several workers outside explaining how to get inside and also taking your temperature.
Details are sparse at the moment, but just know that Hawaii will have a Swatch Destination watch for the islands come December. Periodically, Swatch creates watches based on themes from geographic locations. For the United States, New York City, Miami, and Las Vegas are the only cities with a Swatch Destination design, but in early […]
Of course it was too good to be true. Since the re-release of the Yeezy 350 Beluga, I don’t recall any Hawaii Footlockers doing in-app reservations for any hyped shoe release. That’s why it was both surprising and refreshing when the upcoming Yeezy 350 Cloud White showed up as a reservation for the Ala Moana […]
Uncle Clay’s House of Pure Aloha (HOPA) is well known in the islands for serving up some ono shave ice and just as much aloha. So much so that you may want to join the #HOPAlove movement by representing with your own HOPA shirt. Luckily Ross shares your love, and you might be lucky enough […]
UNIQLO Hawaii goes from pop up to permanent in Ala Moana starting on 9:28 on 9/28. Are you ready for UNIQLO in full effect? Airism and Hawaii-exclusive LifeWear!
Did you cop your KAWS collaboration with Sesame Street and UNIQLO? If not, I highly suggest you do so soon. Launched Thursday night online, physical stores started selling these graphic tees on Friday, including the Pop-Up location at Ala Moana. While stock remained strong, there definitely was a steady stream of customers, all exiting with […]
So I finally got to visit the new UNIQLO Pop-Up store in Ala Moana, and as expected, it was crowded. For the most part, inventory was good except for this Doraemon shirt that was only available in medium. For a temporary space, this location is big-ish, but it is small for a UNIQLO. To keep […]
Yeah, I’m a little disappointed that I missed out on the UNIQLO Pop-up Preview event at Ala Moana this afternoon, but… kids finishing the school year and spending the day with them was the right call. The day would have been even better if JR Smith at least hoisted up a shot after his rebound, […]
Tomorrow is the day of the pop-up grand opening. Featuring Hawaii exclusives as well!
