Hawaii-based natural food grocer Down to Earth will expand its presence with a new, larger, stand-alone store at Pearlridge Center as part of the center’s $33 million renovation project.
Additionally, quick-service food chain Five Guys Burgers and Fries, menswear retailer Lindbergh and Pieology Pizzeria also will open the mall.
Bank of Hawaii also will open a financial services center as part of the redevelopment of the center, owned by Ohio-based Washington Prime Group Inc.
Down to Earth will open in an expanded, standalone space next to Toys R Us, on the Moanalua Road side of the mall.
“This investment reflects our commitment to the Aiea community, which continues to support Pearlridge Center,” said Fred Paine, Pearlridge general manager.
Customers will be offered an “increasingly dynamic environment” for shopping and dining following the renovation, he said, which will be undertaken in phases from the second quarter of 2017 through 2017.
The mall will remain open, with officials pledging minimal renovation-related interference for shoppers.
