I write extensively about the state of prominent U.S. grocery chains. In that spirit has come word of the imminent permanent closure of a stalwart Foodland location.

The address is 414 N School St, Honolulu, HI 96817.

Let us explore.

Foodland, 2023

According to a September 23rd report from The-Sun.com, the shuttering Foodland market has been serving Liliha, Hawaii for more than seven decades and will be closing Sunday, September 24th due to failure to renew its lease.

As excerpted from the report: Closing a store we have operated for 74 years is not something we take lightly – especially because of the impact it will have on our loyal customers and employees,” Jenai Wall, chair and chief executive officer of Foodland told KITV in a statement.

The report goes on to state: In total, the Honolulu, Hawaii-based grocery chain operates 31 stores on four islands.

There has been no indication other locations will be closing.
