    The meaning of "Aloha"

    Maui County Agricultural Festival 2017

    On April 1, 2017, we were fortunate enough to attend the annual Maui County Agricultural Festival at the Maui Tropical Plantation. The Maui County Farm Bureau partnered with the Office of Economic Development, as well as generous sponsors and other allies of the agricultural industry to host this exciting event. From food booths, featuring cuisine designed by our local chefs and made with locally grown products, to the fresh farmer’s market, there was fun to be had by all. For us at Hawaiian Store, attending this event was a wonderful opportunity, as it’s always great to meet face to face with the people who produce many of the Maui products that we love. This year we spent some time talking with the coffee growers and learned something new. Did you know that any good coffee should taste just as good after it’s cooled down as it does when it is freshly brewed? Indeed, that is the case. We truly enjoyed every aspect of this year’s Maui County Agricultural Festival and would highly recommend attending upcoming festivals if you have the opportunity. There is so much to learn, experience, taste and appreciate, and there is no age limit since there are activities and entertainment geared towards a positive family experience. This is just another way to experience “Aloha” in Hawaii. Wishing you all a wonderful rest of the month of April. Mahalo for your continued support.

    Hawaiian Store's Origin

    Hawaiian Store's Origin

    Hawaiian Store is a family owned business located on Maui, Hawaii.  It serves customers around the globe through their Shopify webstore as well as multiple eCommerce sites, such as Amazon, Ebay and Bonanza.  As a Flight Attendant for a major airline, founder Jennifer (Kinipela) Welch was often asked to bring items from Hawaii when she returned to work on the mainland.  One of the most common requests was for coffee.  Hawaiian Store was initially created to share her favorite Maui coffee and quickly grew into an online "General Store" offering hundreds of Hawaii's most beloved items to shoppers everywhere.

    In addition, we also specialize in customized luxury amenity bags for resorts, corporate events and gifts.

    Hawaiian Store is continually sourcing new items, many of which are Made in Hawaii. Customer service is the core of the business and we offer a 100% quality guarantee on every item.

    Sending Aloha makes our day!

    The History of Aloha

    The History of Aloha

    Being raised on the island of Maui, I can tell you from personal experience that there is no better place to learn about people.  The history of Hawaii is deeply embedded in every day living, as well as the beauty that surrounds the islands.  King Kamehameha I was responsible for uniting all of the Hawaiian Islands under one ruler by 1810.  The Hawaiian Monarchy was overthrown in 1893, annexed in August 1898 and became a territory two years later.  It wasn't until August 21, 1959 that Hawaii become the 50th state of the United States.  What a visitor will notice almost immediately is the laid back style that Hawaii provides.  One of the many things I love about Hawaii is it's people.  Hawaii is one of the few places that you can smile, make eye contact with someone and strike up a conversation with such ease.  We are reminded daily of the beauty that surrounds us - beaches, stunning ocean water, sunrises, sunsets, breath taking views, and of course the weather.  Hawaii helps to remind everyone to appreciate the time we have and to truly take in the beauty that surrounds us, wherever we are.  In Hawaii our families (ohana) extend beyond blood and those included in anyone's ohana are honored.  Through all of the changes that Hawaii and its people have endured, they have kept the "Aloha Spirit" alive and well.  "Aloha" means affection, peace, compassion and mercy, and is used when greeting someone or bidding someone farewell.  We hope that our visitors will be able to experience the spirit of Aloha for themselves.
