In these Rona times, the closures due to COVID continue to climb. While walking around Ala Moana, I noticed a few more shuttered storefronts. Banana Republic, amazingly, has been closed for some time. Abercrombie for Kids closed its doors. Forever 21 didn’t make it in 2021. Foot traffic at the mall does seem to be […]

Wait… Bed, Bath, and Beyond is still in Hawaii? I had thought they closed all their locations, but they have a Black Friday ad in the Star Advertiser. And yes, the Pearlridge/Aiea location formerly known as Circuit City is still home to the last Bed, Bath, and Beyond in the 808 state.
Walking around Ala Moana, I spied these Crocs that looked suspiciously like the recently released Crocs collab with the Grateful Dead, Bad Bunny, and Justin Bieber. Here are the legitimate Crocs clogs. Here’s what I saw at Famous Footwear and Nordstrom. Tie-dye, yellow, and a white Crocs sans jibbitz were in store, but really, the […]
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, […]
Athough touted as a $6 combo for the McDonalds x Travis Scott meal, Hawaii residents are paying a $1 more. Will that $7 price tag deter you from that 1150-calorie meal?

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 […]
Ross Dress for Less reopened its doors on Sunday and the lines to get in were crazy long. Pent up demand and Corona safety measure all contributed to the queues to dress for less. I’ll be passing for a while. Though there may be good deals with assumed back inventory, I just don’t want to […]
On an early visit to Target, this was a welcomed sight. Yes, the in-store Starbucks is once again brewing albeit with a stanchion-ed maze. There were even these new post-COVID19 cups.
On the first day of freedom during this Rona Times, while many flocked to the shopping malls and beaches, I was on a mission for the real cook. No, I didn’t go to Shoe Palace for a chance to walk away with two pairs of Air Jordan 1 Royal Toes. Instead, I headed straight to […]
Another week another queue outside of the new Donut King. This time, the line headed away from Times towards Morning Brew.
