After much anticipation, the new and improved International Market Place opened on August 25. The center’s open-air setting now boasts more than 50 shopping and dining options, some of which are brand new to the Islands. It promises to once again become a gathering place for entertainment in Waikīkī, as parking is no sweat with 700 self-parking stalls plus valet at the new Kuhio Avenue garage.

 

We covered the grand opening live on Facebook and kept readers up to date with the latest finds on Instagram and Twitter. Here are the highlights:
