Crews demolish Old Kahului Store on Maui

KAHULUI, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Crews on Tuesday started demolition work on the Old Kahului Store on East Kaahumanu Avenue.

Maui Now reports that the structure, located across the street from Longs Drugs Store at the Maui Mall, was condemned.

Although the building, which belongs to the state Harbors Division, was built in 1916, it was not considered a historic site because it had been remodeled.

Once the debris is cleared, the land will be used by harbor customers to pick up items shipped by Young Brothers. The building was home to tenants ranging from a sewing store to chiropractic offices to a beauty salon.
