Ross replacing Hilo Hattie’s in Kihei

9/19/17  UPDATE. It’s been a long time coming, but word is October 6 is opening day

 #kihei   After over two years of vacancy at Pi’ilani, here comes Ross

time Hilo Hattie’s spot to be filled by Ross Dress for Less retail.

it is quite a different product seemingly aimed at dissimilar
clientele, but now we”ll see how this long established retailer in
Kahului does in our area. Is locating in a center anchored by Safeway
a coincidence?

  1. I enjoy shopping at this store for many years now.
    What a treat to have stores in our area to shop in.
    Much better than driving all the way to Kahului for a good deal on so many things.

  2. Filling existing vacant commercial spaces with popular retailers makes sense for the community

  3. I think this is great! Hilo Hattie’s was so outdated and expensive. Ross will serve the local community very well, and they will probably carry a line of Aloha shirts for those visitors who are looking for them! But for the flourishing Kihei community – it brings bonus shopping to us, so we can save gas & emit less pollution! Welcome!

  4. I agree with the positive comments. Myself and so many of my friends are all ecstatic that Ross will be here in Kihei. Kahului store is always out of stock, whenever I have the time to make a trip there. It will be great to be able to shop for so many needed items without having to leave Kihei. I will be at the grand opening for sure!

  5. Exciting news !!!! Cant wait !!!

  6. Do we know,yet, when it’ll open? I’m trying to be patient Lol.

  7. We do not. We have called the store in town 808) 877-5483 but they said they have no idea when it will open

  8. Mahalo- most helpful, Judi. The Parks Director’s name is Ka’ala Buenconsejo and his contact info is at

    For County Council you can email Council Services at and request you message go to all nine council members

  9. How many years do we have to wait for Ross in Kihei to be completed?

    I never waited as long for any store to be complete – even when a store is much larger.

    I sometimes see workers inside but they are very slow.

  10. Bring it on. So many shoppers in Kihei, and so few stores.

    Coming to Maui (Kiehei) next week. Just spotted this that Hilo Hattie closed! Was sad…as it is a store I always went to and bought a few cute sundresses.
    My sadness only lasted a little while….because I am very thrilled that I will find a ROSS STORES to browse around in.
    Good place for it!! Yay!!!!
