When a small modest grocery and dry goods store opened to serve their community back in 1916 that grew throughout the years to become a seven-store grocery chain, you know they are doing something right! That’s exactly what the sixth KTA Super Store in Waikoloa Village is all about; serving their residents and welcoming visitors to the Hawaii Island. Their service with a smile and Aloha service caters to their customers in many ways. Their entrance sign says it all: “KTA Super Stores. Where You’re Someone Special Every Day!” This message makes everyone smile and gets your shopping experience off to a positive start.
It’s like a one-stop destination for everything you need including groceries, deli items, baked goods, adult beverages, pharmacy items, gift cards, ATM banking, video rental, souvenirs, and so much more. KTA Super Stores will even help you spread the spirit of Hawaii nationwide with their, Sending Aloha Nationwide, program. They’ll box, pack and ship a KTA gift box full of goodies you request anywhere in the USA.
Their produce section, like every section in the store, is super and huge! It’s like a farmer’s market right inside the store. Fresh locally sourced fruits and vegetables colorfully fill the bins. Fresh pineapples, watermelon, bananas, mangos, papaya, oranges, apples, avocado, and other delicious fruits will tempt you. The veggies are equally fresh including lettuce, potatoes, onions, yams, lahopipi, tomatoes, are carefully and beautifully displayed. If it is grown in Hawaii, you can find it at KTA Super Store. This market is so big and carries so many items, there are arrows on the floor like Path to Produce that point you in the direction of the department you are looking for. Now that’s going above and beyond!
The deli is equally impressive. Fresh deli-style meat, cheese, prepared salads, sandwiches, hot dishes, seafood, sweet desserts, and freshly baked bread fill the counters and shelves. The cheddar rolls made fresh daily are spectacular. The Hawaiian rice and orange chicken specialty is delightfully sweet with a touch of citrus. It is perfect for a picnic on the beach. Sushi lovers should try Korean sushi. It’s fresher than fresh with a touch of seaweed and spice to warm things up. The KTA Super Store has thought of everything. They will easily serve up smoothies and coffee beverages made to order and guaranteed to please.
If you are looking for a bottle of wine, a favorite beer, or other adult beverage, look no further. Their selection located not far from the produce department is extensive and impressive. They carry everything you need to make a deliciously refreshing cocktail including bottled water, carbonated beverages, soda brands, mixers, and all the accessories you might need to get the celebration started.
A Super Store wouldn’t be complete without fresh seafood and KTA doesn’t disappoint. Fresh scallops, clams, fish, shrimp, crab, Ahi tuna, and other catch of the day selections are available.
