A crowded grocery store in Honolulu may be one reason why shoppers can’t find what they’re looking for, and one of the main reasons for the problem is that the city is one of only a few in the nation with no grocery stores.
In a city that has a long history of having a lack of grocery stores that are open at the same time as a high number of people are getting ready to go to work, Honolulu’s downtown grocery store is the only one of its kind in the country.
But that may soon change, and a number of other grocery stores will be opening on Tuesday.
They include one at the corner of N. Kalama and Kalama Ave.
near the new convention center and another at a nearby strip mall.
The city is also expanding its grocery distribution centers.
So far, the city has opened two at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Honolulu.
And the city will soon open its first downtown grocery in the form of a large grocery store.
The opening of the Honolulu Grocery Store will take place next Tuesday, and it will be the first store to open in the city since the former Walmart closed its doors in the late 1990s.
“This is the beginning of the expansion of our existing distribution centers and the future of our city,” said Honolulu City Councilman John Melendez.
“We are working to expand our distribution centers across the city.”
The first of those centers is the Honolulu Food Store, which will open Tuesday at the intersection of Kalama Avenue and N. Kapiolani St. in the new Walmart Supercenter shopping center.
The store is expected to sell more than 1,000 products, which could make it one of Hawaii’s most popular shopping options.
But Melendez says that it is still in its early stages of the planning.
The Honolulu Food Center is expected not only to serve Hawaii’s burgeoning Latino population, but to be one of Honolulu’s biggest retailers.
But as it grows, the store will have to adapt to a growing population, and will need to hire employees.
For now, the Honolulu Health Department says that the Honolulu food center will not be open for business.
