On behalf of all 2,500 of us who are part of the Foodland family, I want to thank you for voting us Hawaii’s Best Grocery Store in the Honolulu Star Advertiser’s 2011 People’s Choice Awards. We received the news with excitement, pride, and gratitude – excitement to be on top, pride in what we have accomplished together, and perhaps most importantly, gratitude to you, our customers, for making this achievement possible. As Hawaii’s only remaining locally owned supermarket with stores statewide, we face formidable competition from not only mainland chains, but large national retailers, club stores, and drug stores selling groceries. And we know that – today, more than ever before -- you have many choices when it comes to grocery shopping. That you have selected us as 2011’s “best” is truly an honor. Thank you!
Please know, too, that while this recognition means a great deal to us, we will not take for granted what got us here – our dedication to making serving YOU the most important thing we do. From the opening of our first store 63 years ago, our company has tried to remain true to its humble roots by taking good care of our customers and supporting the community that supports us. As our late founder, Sully Sullivan told us time and again, “Treat our customers well and they will come back.” We continue to embrace Sully’s words and legacy today as we work hard to ensure you have an outstanding experience every time you shop in our stores. And believe me, we are as committed as ever to earning your respect and confidence, and remaining Hawaii’s best grocery store!
As a special thank you from us, we are offering Double Maika’i Points on your entire order (excluding liquor and tobacco) for ONE DAY ONLY – Monday, June 27, 2011. We hope you will stop in and see us so we may thank you in person for making this wonderful honor possible.
