Kathy, try googling Kailua on the map and then search for grocey stores. I found plenty of Safeway and Foodland stores which are like the big box stores. The are also smaller "markets" in the are as well.

Hope this helps. Enjoy your trip!

xkittyx .... Times, Safeway, Foodland all have stores in Kailua Town. There is also a store in Enchanted Lakes and one at Aikahi Park SC. Don Qujiote, Kailua also have a grocery department. All depends on where you are staying, choose the closest. All are within driving distance to Kailua Beach and Lanikai.

The grocery stores with the best selection of items are the Foodland on Hekili (off Hamakua) and the Safeway on Hahani (also off Hamakua). They are within a minute or so of each other.

Both have bakeries and deli sections. Foodland has the better deli section, IMHO---they carry Boars Head products and slice them to order.

Safeway has a bigger bakery but Foodland has some very good items and also carries Ted's Bakery pies---baked on the North Shore and brought in fresh. Foodland has a very nice "gourmet" grocery and wine shop.

Whatever you do, get the discount "club" cards for Foodland and Safeway. You will save a small fortune, especially at Safeway. Don Quijote does not offer a card. Times Supermarket does but frankly I don't really care for that store.

Here, once again, are the links to the store sites:

Ooops. Safeway is on Hamakua, not Hahani. Almost on Hahani, but not quite.
