Furniture Festival

Molokai Furniture celebrates six years.

In the past six years, the Kualapu`u Business Center has grown exponentially – which landlord Carol Gartland attributes to Molokai Furniture.

“On the mainland they have anchor stores,” Gartland said, explaining how business centers or malls have big businesses that attract the crowds, which trickle down into the smaller surrounding stores. “Denise’s store is our anchor store.”

Molokai Furniture, owned by Denise Taueetia, celebrated its sixth anniversary last weekend with a two-day blowout of sales, free t-shirts and food. The store is located at the Kualapu`u Center, which has four other retail businesses.

Taueetia opened her store in 2002 as a gift shop.

“It was a blessing after that,” she said.

In 2003, she expanded to unfinished furniture, which her husband, Afa, constructed, and by 2004, she was bringing in rattan and wicker furniture. Over the years, the store has evolved into a comprehensive furniture, décor, and gift shop.
