1. Re: What is the status of the Safeway in Puhi?

well, the field of grass and dirt are sitting there. We also would like to see it get built and open, but so far nothing is happening.

I heard a while back about a wild guess date, but until I see the walls up and the doors open, we will continue to use Time Market ( who is doing ok with their specials ) , as well as Costco.

Sorry, perhaps others have more definite news for you. in the meantime, we all wait, and wait, wait.

Aloha from Kaua'i!

Nothing going on....as everyone else has already said. Don't anticipate anything in the near future either.

Personally I hope that it never gets built, but that is me since I really don't care for Safeway....personal choice.

Safeway may not be everyone's choice but then you don't have to go there if that's the case. I think it's going to be a great addition for south shore and Lihue residents and will serve many on their way to Poipu from the airport too. And think of all the jobs it will give.
