Iwilei has 'do it yourself' options

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Iwilei may now be one of the best places to go in Hawaii to hammer out a deal.

A new Lowe's store officially opened there Thursday and that makes three home improvement stores within a mile of each other.

The new Lowe's is 117,000 square feet of tools and paint and colorful plants, 40,000 different items in all.

And it also means jobs, more than 100 positions and there are still some openings.

According to Lowe's, the store represents an investment into the community of about $21 million and an investment of time. The store was originally slated to open more than two years ago.

Iwilei is already being served by two other home improvement stores. Home Depot is just around the corner and then there's City Mill.. right down the street.

So plenty of options in Iwilei if you're a 'do it yourselfer' or someone who could use a little help.
