The event began with Whole Foods Market’s bread breaking ceremony.

KAHULUI — Whole Foods Market Kahului opened its doors on Feb. 24 to a crowd of excited shoppers.

Morning festivities kicked off with Whole Foods Market’s traditional bread breaking ceremony, food and product samples by local vendors, and demonstrations.

The first 200 shoppers to spend $50 or more were also treated to a Whole Foods Market Kahului exclusive reusable tote bag with a fresh Maui Gold pineapple inside.

“We have been looking forward to joining the Maui community for many years and are so excited to be here and celebrate this day with our shoppers,” said Ray Stockton, Whole Foods Market Kahului’s store team leader.

“Whether you are a first-time customer or a longtime patron of Whole Foods Market, we look forward to seeing you at our new Kahului store and providing all of our shoppers with the level of excellence and service that our brand is known for.”

In celebration of its grand opening, the store has planned a number of community events for local shoppers throughout March, including Value Tours that offer useful tips to help customers shop for nutritious foods on a budget, and Health Starts Here Consultations, starting on March 5, which allow shoppers to enjoy a free, 15-minute consultation with insight into nutritional needs and tips on how to get or stay healthy.

“Whole Foods Market is committed to the Hawaii market and providing our loyal shoppers with access to the highest-quality produce available and a great selection of local products,” said Patrick Bradley, Whole Foods Market president of the Southern Pacific Region.
