Lahaina Safeway Celebrates Re-Grand Opening of Newly Remodeled Store
Safeway will celebrate the re-grand opening of its newly remodeled store in Lahaina Cannery Mall on Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2018. The 60,000-square-foot store will hold a private blessing, followed by a brief program with check presentations to local nonprofits and in-store sampling of fresh-cut produce, poke and local items.
Located along the Honoapiʻilani Highway, the store’s new footprint increased by more than 25,000 square feet, with expanded departments such as deli, bakery, a fresh seafood and poke section, bulk foods, wine and spirits, and prepared food offerings – including sushi, a wing bar and hot soups. Store executives say customers will enjoy hundreds of organic, natural, local and healthier-for-you choices, including fresh-cut fruit and vegetables.
“We are excited to unveil the highly upgraded and transformed store in Lahaina,” said George Glukfeld, Hawaiʻi General Manager. “The extensive enhancements we’ve made will give our customers a wide assortment of food options in one convenient location at our largest store on Maui.”
The remodeled store also will have a Starbucks with cafe seating, a wine cellar, an extensive line of Boar’s Head premium deli meat and cheeses, custom made deli trays as well as a large cheese station, a made-to-order poke bowl bar, salad bar and Asian hot foods. The store is open 24 hours a day, and is led by Store Director Bobby Galapon. The Lahaina location employs 175 team members–nearly 100 of them are new employees.
In celebration of the re-grand opening, the Boys and Girls Club of Maui and Lahainaluna High School Foundation will each be presented with a $1,500 charitable contribution from Safeway during the festivities. A brief program will take place the same day shortly after 7 a.m. in front of the store with Safeway management, business and community leaders in attendance.
