Where’s the best place to pick up those souvenirs you’ve just GOT to take home?
- For the most fun shopping: lots of small stores on Front Street in Lahaina.
- For the most choices in one place: Hilo Hattie (Lahaina & Kihei).
- For the lowest prices: Wal-Mart in Kahului.
- For Hawaiian music CDs, there are some at Hilo Hattie and a much larger selection at Barnes and Noble bookstore in Lahaina. But the best prices are at Wal-Mart in Kahului.
Six main Maui shopping areas I suggest, plus the usual

Nicer tourist shops and restaurants.
Good souvenir shirt choices at Crazy Shirt.

Upscale shops and restaurants in a beautiful modern open-air mall
The Lahaina Cannery Mall 661-5304
Modern enclosed mall on the main road outside the north edge of Lahaina

And the usual Big Boxes:
Yes, they do have all of these on Maui: Costco, Walmart, Target, KMart, Whole Foods, Lowes, Home Depot. You’ll find them all in the main city of Kahului.
