Info from Maui Jon's November 2012 Newsletter
"Construction starts this month to convert the Lahaina Center into The Outlets of Maui. The ten buildings at 900 Front Street (corner of Papalaua) will turn into the first outlet mall on Maui.
Hilo Hattie will remain as the main anchor store. Two of the current restaurants, Hard Rock Cafe and Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, will also remain. The third restaurant, David Paul's Island Grill has closed. Warren and Annabelle's Magic Show will remain.
It's not yet known what new stores will open when the remodeling is completed in the second half of 2013. But a similar outlet mall on the island of Oahu includes outlet stores for Banana Republic, Calvin Klein, Coach, Guess, Levi's, Polo Ralph Lauren, and Saks Off 5th.
This change at Lahaina Center will not affect the Old Lahaina Center across the street, which includes the Maui Theater, Starbucks, ABC, Foodland, post office, and many small stores and restaurants.
For lots of info about places to shop on Maui now, without waiting for these new outlet malls, see Maui Shopping."
