Not Just Another Convenience Store: How ABC Stores Continue to Enhance the Visitor Experience
The Pacific Club
Honolulu, HI
Share this event:




Our guest: Paul Kosasa, President & CEO, ABC Stores

Tuesday, September 16
The Pacific Club
5:30-6:30 pm  Networking & No-host Cocktails
6:30-8:309 pm  Dinner & Program

Drive down Kalakaua and Kuhio Avenues in Waikiki, and you'll count more ABC Stores than you have fingers and toes. If it seems that there's an ABC Store on every block, it's because there are 37 of them between Ala Moana Center and the Honolulu Zoo. They're stocked with everything visitors need for their stay, plus all the souvenirs they can fit in their suitcases at non-touristy prices.

What's the story behind ABC Stores? How did they become the biggest retailer of macadamia nuts, sunscreen, and souvenirs in the state? How do they do it and where are they going? Join us on September 16 and learn the ABC's of this vibrant family business.
