Escalators Are Not Exercise Machines

Please keep that in mind the next time you’re riding an escalator and repeat to yourself, “Escalators are not exercise machines.” If you forget, this sign will help you remember. Now I would have expected something like this at Ala Moana where it seems mandatory that at least one set of escalators is broken. But […]

Ross Windward Mall Opens This Week

Are you ready? Hawaii’s latest Ross location in Hawaii opens in Windward Mall on Friday, October 12, 2018 according to the Ross store locator. Now I don’t know what time the store actually opens since I doubt the grand opening would actually occur at 7:30am. I mean the Ala Moana grand opening didn’t occur at […]

Asked to Leave… Again

It’s been a few years since I was asked to leave a store, but it finally happened again. Well, to be clear, I wasn’t directly asked to leave the store, but I could not have my drink in the store, so I took it as an indirect request to leave the store. And I did, […]

Occupying a “corner” location, this unusually shaped store is fully stocked with fall and Halloween-seasonal scents.

Signs of Hawaii: No Thrashing

I really don’t know what to make of this sign other than thrashing must really be an issue. This sign was posted all over Simply Halloween, a seasonal store in Windward Mall with great discounts on Halloween-themed items. To be honest, I don’t know what “thrashing” means in this context, and Urban Dictionary isn’t much […]

IHOP Closed

Truthfully, I didn’t see this one happening but draw the curtains on IHOP at Windward Mall since they’re now closed. Okay, IHOP isn’t known for fine dining, but they are a well known breakfast chain and being the only place open in Windward Mall in the mornings, I thought that would be all the advantage […]

Wait, Mocha Java Cafe Is Still at Windward Mall?

Wait, what? Last I knew it, Mocha Java Cafe in Windward Mall was done for. It’s space was vacated as the new Starbucks location opened up across the way. But while checking out the future space of the Hokulani Bake Shop, I noticed this sign. The logo looked familiar but the name, MJ Cafe, just […]

Future Starbucks at Windward Mall

Here’s proof positive that Starbucks is headed to Windward Mall. Coming down the center escalator, what’s that white walled off area? What does that sign say? Yup, Starbucks coming soon. And I know what you’re asking… where did Cinnabon go? Still listed on the Windward Mall web site, I didn’t see a relocation for Cinnabon, […]
