As reported by Ryan Ozawa, the Apple Store in Waikiki is scheduled to close in January of 2024. In the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center for 16 years, I did think it was an odd fit for Waikiki when it first opened, but yet, the store seemed to be doing just fine.
Maybe the crowds were really tourists looking for (free) technical support more than out-of-state buyers. Personally, the Waikiki location has been my third choice of Apple Stores behind Ala Moana and Kahala. But I must say the volcanic rock facade is one of the better designs I’ve come across while visiting other Apple Stores around the world.
