The recent grant re-opening of the Lahaina Safeway marked a milestone for renovation efforts at West Maui’s Lahaina Cannery Mall.

The expansion into the mall’s interior has grown the store’s size from 37,650 to 64,500 square feet, making it the largest Safeway in the state

The expansion of Safeway is just the latest in step in the renovation and refresh of the Lahaina Cannery.

In addition to the expanded Safeway, Lahaina Cannery also features a new 4,500 square foot ABC Store.

Ongoing improvements will include new mall entry ways, a new food court, several new restaurants and retail tenants, as well as new landscaping and common areas.


“Our goal is to provide the West Maui community with a high quality retail shopping destination, that will serve locals and visitors alike,” said Jay Kerner, president of US Realty Partners, managing partner of the mall’s ownership group. “Over the next two years, we look forward to continuing to invest substantial capital into the Cannery’s renovation and the local economy.”
