Go to www.cvs.com and get your CVS Extra Care card. Great discount coupons when you use it at Longs.($5 dollars off on a $20 dollar purchase, etc) Longs Hawaii doesn't issue these cards, but you can sign up on line at the above website and they will send it to you in the mail. Save money Hawaii!

It seems each time I passed by the Moiliili Star Market site, the parking lot was packed, and the few times I entered the store, it was full of shoppers. Sadly, this closing will hurt the many who were within walking distance of the market. Change can be tough for some.

I wonder what CVS is going to do with the site on S. King St across from Stadium Park that a Long's sits on now.

"These actions by these two retailers are just unacceptable." This is another of our "elected leaders" mouthing off nonsense. It's called free enterprise.

The article says that Longs doesn't own that S.King location they just lease it. So CVS won't have to do anything with it other than just last out the lease or pay to break the lease likely.

they studied the demographics and markets. if another grocery store made sense at these sites, that would have been done. the property transaction is more important in this case to them. It's business for the sake of business and the profit of owners so if consumers don't like it they have to vote with their wallets.

Now now now Ewa. Really, who shops at a Times or Star? Answer, EBT customers who don't care bout prices or quality.
Their prices are high and are not managed well.
Smart shoppers go to Costco and Walmart for their grocery needs.
But there are a lot of people out there that need meds and other pharmaceutical products. CVS knows this that's why there will be two in your neighborhood. Rejoice, be happy..

Grocery stores in that location have never been able to make a profit. My filipino friends from Ewa Beach all shop at Daiei or whatever the name of that store. Choke selection of fish and produce...
Don't whine, drive you lazy buggas. When you coming home from work right there. sheezzz.
