“Apple Computer is hiring for its second Apple Store on Oahu, which is expected to open at Kahala Mall by the end of this year,” Nina Wu reports for The Star-Bulletin (Hawaii). “It’s expected to occupy about 5,000 square feet in what was formerly the ground-floor Gap space at Kahala Mall.”
“‘I think it will be a really exciting addition,’ General Manager Ron Yoda said. ‘It will revitalize the mall, and I think the demographics of Kahala (are) perfect for the Apple store, which is in a very convenient location.’ Yoda said lease negotiations went on for at least six months, and that it remained up to Apple to make the new store announcement,” Wu reports. “Job listings posted Friday for the Kahala location on Apple’s Web site, jobs.apple.com, included store manager, assistant store manager, Mac genius, Mac specialist, inventory control specialist and retail business consultant. The jobs also are posted on honolulu.craigslist.org.”
Wu reports, “Jenn Neves, a manager at the Ala Moana Apple store, confirmed that the Kahala store would be open by the end of the year, but declined to give more specifics. Apple Computer Inc., based in Cupertino, Calif., has 156 retail stores nationwide, with the newest addition in Miami Beach, Fla.”
