Jeans Warehouse Opening on Molokai

Jeans Warehouse News Release

When Molokai residents expressed their farewell to the Molokai General Store in August, many were saddened to see the one-stop shop close its doors.  The Mikami family was grateful for the community support over the years, but unfortunately, was driven to close their doors due to declining sales.

The Mikami family has been searching for new occupants to provide a welcomed service to the island of Molokai.   Protecting the community and culture of Molokai has been the key concern with Mr. David and Jon Mikami’s search and has been very selective in their decision.

Jeans Warehouse will occupy the space of the former Molokai General Store, bringing its first store to The Friendly Isle this October.  This will be the company’s 29th retail outlet within the chain of Jeans Warehouse and Local Fever stores throughout Hawaii.

The store will feature trendy Junior fashion, including Junior Plus sizes 1X-3X, ladies fashion, accessories, and shoes.  The store assortment will also include girls toddler, 4-6X and size 7-16 apparel, with accessories and shoes for our young keiki.  The newest department at Jeans Warehouse is boys toddlers, 4-6X, and Men’s wear featuring casual T-shirts and shorts.  There will also be several novelty treasures found throughout the store.

Linda Holt recognized a need to provide Hawaii residents and visitors with a broad range of affordable junior fashion and established Jeans Warehouse in 1978.  The company operates stores on Oahu, Maui, Hawaii Island, Kauai and soon Molokai and Guam.

Jeans Warehouse is a locally operated company and is now a 100 percent employee-owned organization through the Jeans Warehouse Employee Stock Ownership Plan.

For over 30 years, Jeans Warehouse has been dedicated to bringing the latest fashion trends, at affordable prices, to our customers and is now very excited to be part of the ohana of the island of Molokai in October, 2014.
