Marshalls, an off-price retailer owned by TJX Companies, is planning to return to Hawaii and open its first of two outlets in Hawaii starting this month. The retailer, which plans to add about 220 full- and part-time positions, had left the islands in 1996.
The grand opening for the first store will be May 30 at Kapolei Commons while the second store opening will be June 13 at Ala Moana Center. Hours for both grand openings will be 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., with a blessing ceremony preceding the openings at 7 a.m. Marshalls, which is part of the same family as T.J. Maxx, offers merchandise for ladies, men, juniors, kids, shoes, accessories, home, pet, beauty and more. Both stores will be about 25,000 square feet.
“We are thrilled to bring the surprising Marshalls shopping experience to Hawaii,” Marshalls President Tim Miner said. “Our new stores on Oahu will offer an ever-changing selection of high-quality, on-trend, and brand-name merchandise at the amazing prices that Marshalls is known for. Our buyers create a broad and exciting mix that offers exceptional values in every department from ladies, men’s and kid’s apparel and footwear to home and beauty, and we’re excited to bring this experience to Oahu residents.”
Regular hours for the Kapolei store will be Monday-Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m.. The huors for the Ala Moana store will be Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m.-9:30 p.m. and Sunday, 11 a.m.-8 p.m.
In celebration of its new locations, Marshalls will contribute to the local community by presenting a $10,000 donation to Hale Kipa on behalf of Marshalls at Kapolei Commons and a $10,000 donation to Family Promise of Hawaii on behalf of Marshalls at Ala Moana Center.
