Aoki’s Shave Ice will close on May 30, but plans to reopen across the street in Haleiwa within the year.

The family opened a gift shop, Aoki’s North Shore Trading Co., across from Matsumoto’s Shave Ice a year ago and is exploring reopening within the store or developing an adjacent building to house the popular shave ice stand, said owner Cathy Aoki.

Landlord Kamehameha Schools notified Aoki’s in February that its lease at the current location would end May 31 as part of a redevelopment that calls for demolishing the building housing the longtime business.

Aoki hopes to eventually rehire the company’s eight employees at the new location.
