SANITIZING & CLEANING. Store cleanliness is a regular practice in all our locations. We’re ramping up our efforts by implementing recommended COVID-19 sanitization protocols to ensure your safety.
OUR TEAM. We require all Associates, vendors and visitors to adhere to good hygiene practices. This includes regular hand washing and the use of hand sanitizer between washes. We have protective policies in place regarding associates that display known symptoms of COVID-19, have a suspicion that they have come in contact with a symptomatic individual or have recently traveled/passed through countries that have a Level 3 Travel Health Notice.
In addition, we understand our customers want to prepare by stocking up on their everyday needs and we are working around the clock to restock our shelves. In an effort to supply as many of our customers as possible during this critical time of need. Effective, as of Wednesday, March 11, 2020, we have placed purchase limits on selected products. Please see list below for updated products included in the limit.
Our associates are working hard to provide you with the best service possible at seven locations on Hawai‘i Island.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to create a safe shopping experience for our community. Our actions and policies will adjust as needed by the situation. Let’s work together and stay informed to keep Hawai‘i Island healthy and prevent the spread.

Take Steps to Protect Yourself and Others
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in the trash. Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
- Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care. Learn what to do if you are sick.
- If you are sick: You should wear a face mask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a face mask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a face mask if they enter your room.
- If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a face mask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a face mask). Face masks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.
- Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks. If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection. Click here for disinfection guidance from CDC.gov.
