Mauians have been waiting a long time for Target to arrive on Maui. I remember a photo on the cover of the Maui News announcing Target’s arrival in Lahaina back in 2009. It’s finally here! The parking lots have been abundant with shoppers.
Target on opening day, March 4th, in the pouring rain
The Maui store is approximately 140,000 square feet, and will offer guests the everyday essentials and exclusive brands they have come to expect from Target. In addition, the store will include a selection of fresh produce, fresh packaged meat, and pre-packaged baked goods, as well as a Starbucks and a Target Pharmacy, to further enhance guests’ shopping experience. The Maui location will employ approximately 200 team members.
