ABC Stores are your one-stop-shop for everything you need while on vacation in Hawaii. Similar to Starbucks throughout the US mainland, you will find an ABC store on almost every street corner in Waikiki. If there is anything you forgot to pack in your luggage - more likely than not you will find it here.
The great thing about ABC Stores is that they are very affordable - perfect for those on a budget. They have some terrific Hawaiian products (although if you read the label carefully many products are designed in Hawaii but made in China). They also have fresh fruit, snacks, candy, beer, wine, beach wear and accessories, and my favorite - Hello Kitty Hawaii products - perfect gifts to take home to your friends (or for yourself in my case!)
There are 59 stores in Hawaii - the majority located on Oahu (41 stores). They also have stores in Las Vegas, Guam and Saipan.
Check out their website - you can also buy products online and have them shipped home if your suitcase is already full or overweight!
