Here’s what you’ll find in Ala Moana’s new Ewa Wing Expansion

Local News

Thousands gathered as Ala Moana Center’s new Ewa Wing Expansion officially opened to the public Thursday morning.

The 650,000-sq.-foot expansion includes Hawaii’s first Bloomingdale’s store, Gloria Jean’s Coffees, Magnolia Bakery, and Ninja Sushi.

“I’ve heard about Bloomingdale’s. This is my favorite store since I came from Alaska,” said shopper Mary Tom. “It’s really nice and it brings more business to Hawaii, more jobs.”

In all, 22 new stores opened Thursday, along with 15 others that are either relocating from other parts of the mall, or adding a second location.

“The stores are big and clean and nice. The parking was completely full, so we were circling around for a really long time to find a parking space,” said shopper Bill Hrehocsik.

“I think it’s nice for the community to bring out everybody to just be here,” said Minnie Hrehocsik.

In addition to that, there are more than a dozen stores that won’t open until later this year or next year, like Nordstrom, Foodland Farms, and Shirokiya Japan Village Walk.
