Wanted: Longtime Oahu businesses


POSTED: Wednesday, August 26, 2009

What Oahu merchants have been in business since statehood? Please help us out: We want to hear about businesses of all sizes—from the biggest to the smallest mom-and-pop—that have been around for 50 or more years.

We have already written about the 11 original tenants at Ala Moana Center; as we celebrate their success, we also want to hear about other businesses that have been operating for a half-century or more.

E-mail the name and address of the business—plus any other tidbits you know about the owners or their history—to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). And while you're at it, feel free to share any memories you have of dealing with the business through the years.
