The Kailua store is expected to open in January in a 740-square-foot space at 143 Hekili St., a building currently being developed by landlord Kaneohe Ranch.
Splash! Hawaii will distinguish itself from the current Ala Moana Center location, which is adjacent to the Makai Market food court, by focusing on footwear and beach accessories, Kaneohe Ranch said in a statement.
Kaneohe Ranch expects to turn the store space over to Splash! Hawaii in November, at which point the interior build-out can begin.
“Splash! Hawaii is a local company that has been around for more than 30 years and we look forward to them making Kailua their new home,” Kaneohe Ranch Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Kimo Steinwascher said in a statement. “Its array of beachwear merchandise will be appealing to shoppers of this beachside community.”
