Shopping
We do our grocery shopping at Safeway in Kihei. When we want great fish, Azeka style marinated chicken and ribs, we go to Eskimo Candy. It is only a few blocks away from Safeway.

If you want to have your groceries delivered before you arrive, Makai Services Maui will do it for you.

The nearby Shops at Wailea have all sorts of stores and restaurants. Most of them are high end.

One of our favorite stores is Endangered Pieces in Kihei. A very eclectic variety of products. David, the owner, is a hoot. Everything is always on sale.
