KAHULUI – After nearly half a century, the Sears department store, one of the first tenants of the Queen Ka’ahumanu Center, is closing its doors.

The Kahului retailer, which began selling its inventory with discounted sales, is expected to shut down on Nov. 14, according to a statement from Transformco, the company formed in 2019 to purchase the assets of Sears Holding Corp. Sears was one of the first tenants of the Ka’ahumanu Center when it opened in 1972.

Transformco has announced its intention to close the store at “Redevelop and revitalize the property”, with redevelopment details announced as plans are finalized.

“With the redevelopment of this location focused primarily on retail use, we intend to reinvigorate and maximize real estate value while enhancing the consumer experience with popular retailers that cater to the needs of changing needs of Kahului-Maui. “ said Scott Carr, president of real estate for Transformco.

The company added that its forward-looking strategy for Sears and Kmart is to operate a “diversified portfolio” made up of a small number of premier department stores with a larger number of small format stores – combined with its “Shop your way” rewards program, online marketplace and buy online, grab store capabilities.

Sears Holding Corporation filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on October 15, 2018. Prior to this announcement, Sears Holdings was already closing Sears and Kmart stores nationwide. The Maui Kmart next to Costco closed in June 2017.

The closure of the Maui Sears store is one of the last of its kind in the state. There is a Sears store in Oahu called Sears Appliance & Mattress in Ala Moana, according to the Sears website.

The Kahului store outlasted its counterparts at the Pearlridge Center and Windward Mall in Oahu and a store in Prince Kuhio Plaza on the island of Hawaii.

Discussions about the Maui store closure have been going on for years as merchandise dwindled.

In its heyday, however, the store was stocked with clothes and shoes for the whole family, from babies to kupuna sizes, as well as household items, jewelry, appliances, tools, and electronics. People frequented the store for its automotive hub, as well as its optical shelf and a place to make an extra set of keys.

An employee who answered the phone at the auto center said on Friday it was open but there was no technician to service the vehicles. The automotive centre’s large garage doors were closed during its normal working hours listed on its website.

On Friday morning, every store door had bright yellow signs with red words announcing a store closing sale. The store’s fixtures, furnishings and equipment were also put up for sale. There were also posted signs looking for employees.

Transformco said it will continue to expand both Hometown stores and Home & Life stores in towns and villages that previously had larger format stores. There are more than 300 large and small Sears and Kmart stores nationwide, the statement said.

The store, advertised at around 87,000 square feet, has been available for rent for months.

A spokesperson did not respond to a question about the number of employees who continued to work at the Maui store.

The Queen Ka’ahumanu Center did not immediately comment on the closure on Friday afternoon.

The mall also saw longtime tenant Hallmark close in May. The store was a mainstay for almost 45 years.

In June, a judge granted a request to seize the Queen Ka’ahumanu Center amid a months-long lawsuit over its non-payment of a loan of more than $ 80 million.

Fancy pants follow John Daly Fri, 17 Sep 2021 23:22:55 +0000

Todd Brower has yet to miss an international tournament in Sanford.

For the past four years, the 53-year-old has taken time off to roam the golf course at Minnehaha Country Club and follow legends from his youth as they vie for the winner’s purse.

And Brower plans to return each year, now that the tournament’s contract with Minnehaha Country Club has been extended until 2024.

He and his son, Nate, have now become recognizable regulars, especially in their colorful golf pants and shorts, inspired by their favorite player, John Daly. Nate wore New York Yankees golf pants in the opening rounds on Friday while Todd wore a pair covered in skulls, flowers and tropical plants.

It was even the same style of pants Daly wore at last year’s tournament. Todd confessed he bought them on his phone as he walked the course last year “to match Daly”.

“It’s a talking point and it’s comfortable. And it’s easier to strike up a good conversation with the ladies,” Todd joked.

Father and son Todd and Nate Brower, center, wear John Daly-inspired outfits while watching Daly play golf on day one of the Sanford International Golf Tournament on Friday, September 17, 2021 at Minnehaha Country Club in Sioux Falls.

In total, Todd owns over a dozen Loudmouth patterned golf shorts and pants. Nate has six pairs. Both wear them because their purchases support organizations they believe in, including Daly’s Heart of a Lion charity which supports children and veterans.

The outfits drew a lot of attention from spectators, including T. Denny Sanford, who attended the tournament this year, and Daly’s wife. Todd has received Daly’s autograph almost every year and hopes to someday match the golfer’s outfits.

“If he wears the Honor Pleat Pants on Sunday with me and takes a photo with me, I would donate $ 500 to the Heart of a Lion charity,” Todd said.

John Daly sits on his putter while watching his teammates play golf on day one of the Sanford International Golf Tournament on Friday, September 17, 2021 at the Minnehaha Country Club in Sioux Falls.

But regardless of Daly’s decision to enter this tournament, the father and son duo plan to show off the best of their collections.

“They will change tomorrow and the next day and the next day,” Todd said.

Daly finished the first round tied for 31st at minus-2, five strokes behind leaders KJ Choi and Darren Clarke.

“He likes being 10”: meet the 2021 ambassador of the Sanford Children’s Hospital

Cobey Deschepper has been practicing for months after learning he would be selected as Ambassador for Sanford Children’s Hospital 2021 last March, representing the thousands of children receiving medical services at the only children’s hospital in the region.

Cobey Deschepper, this year's Sanford Children's Hospital Ambassador, waves to the crowd after the starting ceremony to begin day one of the Sanford International Golf Tournament on Friday, September 17, 2021, at the Minnehaha Country Club in Sioux Falls.

Deschepper, 10, was diagnosed with leukemia in 2015 at the age of 4. He spent three years in chemotherapy and is now in remission.

Although the fourth-grader’s goal is to become a professional football player, he took his role seriously and made time to practice his training at Great Shots and Keuhn Park with his family.

Now that he’s mastered his training enough to crush the ball in front of a watching crowd, he’s also considering playing golf.
