Hilo Hattie's seems to have outlived it's time. Pretty cheesy Hawaiian apparel at about 3 times the price of other nearby stores including Wal Mart and KMart with about the same quality level. When you enter they present you with a shell lei which is a nice touch. The day we stopped in the air conditioning was broken and it... More

Once again we tried Hilo Hattie's. It was so unbelievably hot. We came in and out in less than five minutes. No shopping is worth baking for

If you want to get your Hawaiian clothes, this is the place. It's also a great place to get some gifts to take home. Look for coupons in those tourist booklets all over town.

After convincing the men to take us to Hilo Hattie's, we all enjoyed shopping there. My sister-in-law and I both bought several dresses and even the men found items they wanted to buy. Recommend this for buying grandchildren's shirts/shorts, etc. I love my dresses and have worn them since I have come home. Great selection and beautiful dresses aplenty at... More

COMPLIMENTARY SHELL LEIS. This place is huge with lots of choices and dressing rooms. My husband and I picked out matching outfits. I got dresses with matching jewelry and flower hair clips and he got the matching shirts. This place has great sales for men's shirts ($30). Staff and Assistant Manager Gayle are super helpful. They helped us use our... More

If you want the usual fare this is the place. They have all the made in china trinkets and clothing. We didn't find unique local crafts or art but you can stock up here.
