Often guests ask us where to buy groceries or pick up items they forgot to pack. So we’ve added this little map to show you our route to the condo. It takes us a couple of hours to make our Costco, Target, and Walmart run before heading over to the west side of the island.
Costco has all the things you would buy at Costco as you would find on the Mainland. They do have an assortment of local clothing and food at a better price than out in town. Great place to buy souvenirs, swim gear, beach towels, beach gear, and even surfboards and bodyboards. Costco has the best fuel prices in Maui.
We shop at Walmart or Target for smaller portions that you would buy at Costco. So if you’re here on a short stay we recommend either Walmart or Target. Walmart has better prices than Target. But some people don’t like shopping at Walmart. Walmart has a huge section of souvenirs and local treats, like coffee, POG, and local bakery items.
If Whole Foods is something you need, there is one in Kahului. Just like the mainland, it's a little more spendy than most grocery stores. But, they always have the gourmet things you might be looking for.
If you don’t buy your groceries at one of these three places, you'll experience sticker shock if you go to Safeway or Times Markets. Don’t be surprised to pay $10 for a gallon of milk. Groceries are very expensive on the west side of the island.
