How excited all of us here at Foodland are that you have voted us Hawaii’s Best Grocery Store in the Honolulu Star Advertiser's People's Choice Awards - AGAIN. Your confidence and support is heartwarming, humbling, and thrilling — all at the same time. For a local company like ours, there is no greater honor than to have those people we work so hard to serve, tell us they think we are the best. Mahalo to each and every one of you. We feel truly blessed to have such great customers!
Without question, the credit for this wonderful recognition must go to our 2,500 employees throughout the state. In a year when we faced new competition from mainland supermarkets and big box retailers opening right down the street from our stores, our team’s commitment to taking care of our customers and making every shopping experience a positive one has enabled us to survive – and thrive. As Hawaii’s only remaining locally owned supermarket with stores statewide, we do often feel like the underdog. Yet, we are also pleased to be what our corporate chef Keoni Chang called “the little grocery store that could,” thanks to the helping and caring hands and hearts of our employees. We are proud of them all.
As Foodland celebrates its 64th anniversary this year, we remain committed to ensuring that serving YOU is the most important thing we do. And we will work very hard to remain deserving of your loyalty, business, and votes!
We hope you will celebrate this honor with us as we say “thank you” by offering Double Maika’i Points on your entire order (excluding liquor and tobacco) for ONE DAY ONLY – Tuesday, June 26, 2012, and also Double HawaiianMiles (400 HawaiianMiles!) from July 5 through 15, 2012 when you redeem your My Rewards Certificate. Our entire Foodland family looks forward to thanking you for voting us Hawaii’s Best Grocery Store again!
