“Aloha family, after 64 years of serving you we have decided to close our doors indefinitely. As with all businesses we have been hit hard by this pandemic and being a small mom and pop shop, we were unable to survive these trying times.

We are however, working on a few projects and may open once again when this pandemic is pau but for now, please do not forget about us as we will not forget about all of you!

We do appreciate all of our customers and employees who have supported us throughout the past six decades. We’ve enjoyed serving you, many of which we’ve seen grow from keiki to kupuna. Please stay well, stay safe and hopefully we’ll able to serve you once again in the rear future. “
