Kukui Grove Center in Lihue is the largest shopping mall in Kauai. The open air mall features a Macy’s, a Famous Footwear, a Sunglass Hut and various other stores. The Sears store at the center closed in July 2013.
There’s little to see at Kukui Grove if you’re a tourist. There is a Deja Vu surf store that has lots of surfing gear and apparel. The Sunglass Hut and Famous Footwear might come in handy if you’re looking for beach accessories. Longs Drugs might come in handy if you’re needing drugstore type stuff. There’s a food court with several quick serve restaurants, but nothing of note for tourists.
Additionally, this mall gets sparse foot traffic from locals too. This is no Ala Moana mall as found in Oahu. Sorry to say, for tourists, it’s best to pass this mall by unless there’s a specific item that needs to be purchased.
Pier 1 Imports is scheduled to open a store at the Kukui Grove Center in the fall of 2014 in the space formerly occupied by the Borders Book & Music, says a center spokesman.
