Great for stocking up your fridge at the beginning of your vacation, find great Hawaiian gifts here too, like chocolates, coffee, etc. Also cheaper gas and a good cheap lunch option in a pinch

Wow this Costco literally made my trip to Hawaii about 10 thousand times better. They have all the important stuff you could want to get at normal stateside Costco prices just about. It allowed me to save a massive amount of money.
First this place is super super clean! I have never been to a Costco that is cleaner than this one. It was love at first sample and second sample and third sample and... well yeah you get that picture.
PRO TIP: The food court is the cheapest lunch deal on the island, just like it is back home... and the food is just as good!
Now what are some of the standard outstanding Costco deals you want in the Islands:
*Hawaiian chocolate/caramel macadamia nuts at 1/4 the price of Hilo Hattie
*Sunscreen 2 spray bottles and 1 tube with 1 chapstick style for $15 when a single can of spray sunscreen can run you that much alone...
*steaks and chops are super cheap here compared to Big Save or another local grocery
*booze is cheap here
Pro Tip #2: The food court will take cash from you even if your not a Costco member.
It may be cheaper to buy something here than to pay to bring it over to the islands and back. If you are interested in towels, swimming equip, etc...
Also definitely check out the gift cards that they have for sale. It is something that I have found makes a lot of sense to buy locally when I travel. You usually save 20% and they often have the gift cards for some of the most popular joints around and sometimes they are quite swanky.
A definite first stop after you have gotten to your hotel, unless its on the far side of the island. Then stop there after you land at the airport and pick up supplies for your trip!

On the way from Lihue, great place to stock up for the week!
Everything you are looking for and more. Best value for sashimi on the island.
Monster size package for $20 Beer and liquor sold in the store.
Worth stopping by for supplies!
