What Does ABC Store Sell In Maui?
The ABC Store sells essentially everything you need, from gifts to groceries to bare essentials. ABC Stores stock a range of cosmetics, clothing, and assorted souvenirs. They also sell plenty of Hawaiian essentials, such as reef safe sunscreen and beach cover-ups.
As well as filling a need, ABC Stores are proud to support local businesses.
If you’re looking to pick up some “Made in Hawaii” souvenirs, ABC Stores have island sourced products to meet your needs. We recommend grabbing a bag of Kona coffee to take home. It’s a Hawaiian specialty, and can help make the transition back to normality easier.
Do ABC Stores On Maui Sell Alcohol?
Yes, you can buy alcohol at an ABC Store. Hawaii doesn’t have state liquor stores. Instead, alcohol can be purchased from grocery stores such as ABC Store, Safeway, and Costco.
These stores tend to be the top choice for Maui locals and visitors hoping to save money but still get good quality drinks. It’s hard to beat a Mai Tai on the beach, but a bargain local brew on your hotel lanai comes pretty close.
The alcohol isn’t necessarily cheap, but it typically costs less than the average hotel drink. You can expect some good quality liquors as well, if you want to recreate the restaurant experience on a budget. And look out for the local Maui brews!
Is ABC Store Hawaiian Owned?
ABC Store is a locally owned and operated business. It began as a mom-and-pop store, before expanding to become one of the premier convenience stores in the state.
ABC Store also owns several affiliates, such as Honolua Store and Island Country Markets.
You might be surprised to learn that the ABC Store isn’t only in Hawaii. In fact, they also operate stores in Guam, and Saipan. You can even find ABC outlets in Las Vegas!
Is ABC Store Expensive?
ABC Stores are typically located in popular tourist resorts, so the prices can be a little high.
However, ABC Stores are generally priced comparatively, and you can find some real deals. Compared to eating at restaurants, groceries and drinks from ABC Stores are very well priced.
ABC Store may not be your first stop on Maui, but it’s worth checking out for their selection of local brands.
And, as they’re typically located near the major tourist towns, you probably won’t have to go out of your way to do so.
