Hilo Hattie Celebrates 60 Years!

 Hilo Hattie, the store of Hawaii, is celebrating its 60th anniversary during the month of October. Founded in 1963, Hilo Hattie has grown from one store into a chain of stores — find them on each Hawaiian island — to become Hawaii’s largest supplier of Hawaiian fashions and gifts. 

Because of their wonderful and wide assortment of Hawaiian fashions, gifts, souvenirs, t-shirts, home, beach accessories, beauty products, gourmet foods, and stunning island jewelry, the stores have become synonymous with vacation and local style shopping.

As part of their celebration, Hilo Hattie has a fashion show planned for Sunday, October 15 on the Center Stage of Ala Moana Center, starting at 4pm. Along with Hilo Hattie classic and contemporary clothing the show will feature Hawaiian music with DJ Kool E, hula by Halau 'o Napuala'ikauika'iu under Kumu Sallie Yoza, and MC Jolanie Martinez. Plus, there will be giveaways and the quintessential shell lei that are the Hilo Hattie signature greeting at all of their locations. And much more!

“We are grateful for the aloha Hilo Hattie has received from customers near and far over the last 60 years,” said Donald B.S. Kang, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pomare, Ltd. “We look froward to providing aloha wear, accessories and goodies from Hawaii for many years to come.”  

Hilo Hattie offers the largest selection of Made-In-Hawaii fashions for men, women and children in exclusive prints that celebrate the beauty of the islands. Sizing is for keiki ages 6 months and up to 5LX for big & tall customers. For more information visit hilohattie.com
