One of the most popular places to shop in Lahaina is Front Street.   The majority of the stores are souvenir shops, mixed with a few art galleries and restaurants.   Shoppers can stroll down the street, browse through the shops, and quite often find some great deals at places like Maui Tees, which has really inexpensive t-shirts or Oh Baby,  which has a more eclectic array of merchandise.  For great Hawaiian gear, check out Hilo Hattie.  They have everything from floral-print shirts to hula skirts, and have several retail locations throughout Hawaii. 

Lahaina Center  on Front Street is a good place to shop for necessities.  In addition to gift shops, it also has a supermarket, bank, pharmacy, and post office, as well as several dining establishments and a chiropractor.  

Shoppers who prefer air-conditioned shopping malls should check out   Lahaina Cannery , which has some unique stores such as Honolua Surf Co. that sells surfing clothes and accessories,.  Longs Drugs, Safeway,food court, and  Maui Treasures for gifts.
