This has always been a great place to stop if you really need something while in Puako. They have a large selection of snacks and drinks for the family.

EXPENSIVE, limited offerings. NOT really what they hype it to be. Lots of items we found we out of date. Most everything else is frozen. Better off to travel to the FoodLand in Mauna Lani shops or better yet the market in Waimea.

Thank you for your feedback. New photos of the current offerings are being uploaded as I type. We are often trying new things and so our Grab and Go food is often changing so we appreciate you pointing out the dated content.

To meet the locals, grab some supplies and eat at the small cafe at the back. Local post board and papers there.

Nice little place but we arrived at a bad time I think. A customer was upset about something with staff. From our point of view things could have been handled better by staff. Just bad timing.

Thank you for your review. We don't usually have upset customers so I will have to investigate what happened. Thank you for mentioning this so we can make sure our staff are responding appropriately.

We popped into the Puako General Store after spending the morning at Hapuna Beach. We were able to get some pre-made food out of the refrigerators, which worked perfectly for us. The lady managing the store was also very friendly and even gave our 2...daughters some store pens as a little souvenir.More

We stopped here just for water and an ice cream bar. A well equipped general store. Friendly service. Outside was an area for "leave a book, take a book." Not too much out of the ordinary but a quaint place to explore.

The store is not really a restaurant, it’s. General store. You can buy premade sandwiches and salad and pre cut fruit cups. The real benefit of shopping here is that they carry a bit of everything you might need during your stay in Hawaii. Their...produce selection is small but prime choices. They also rent movies and have info on what to do and where. Such great friendly folks. We love this place.More

It's really the only place in Puako. A pretty good variety of food, drink, sundries and even souvenirs. The best home-made tortilla chips around -- and the most expensive!

Not for full grocery shopping but a good spot. You might find whatever you need of small items.It is stuffed full.
