Only 75 customers were allowed in the store at a time to allow for social distancing. The FLH executive director said, they are lucky that Ward Village allowed them to use the space.

“Last year all three of our major sales were cancelled, and we’re really lucky that Ward Village allowed us to use this space. It wasn’t in use. So it’s presented by Ward Village and Hawaii State Federal Credit Union.”
