Brookstone expanding to Waikiki
Brookstone, the national specialty retailer of unique and lifestyle products, is opening its second Hawaii store in Waikiki, according to public documents.
The New Hampshire-based company already has a store at Ala Moana Center in Honolulu.
On Thursday, Brookstone filed a $300,000 building permit with the City and County of Honolulu's Department of Planning and Permitting for a new store at the Saks Fifth Avenue-anchored International Market Place in Waikiki. It once had a store at Ward Village in Kakaako.
Brookstone, which was founded in 1965, sells such items as drones, fitness equipment, pillows, smart home and home automation products and massage equipment.
It opened its first retail store in 1973 after offering its products in catalogs. The company currently has more than 200 stores throughout the United States and Puerto Rico, mainly in shopping malls, lifestyle centers and airports.
Brookstone will join other tenants at the International Market Place including Hanna Andersson, Herringbone, Hilton Grand Vacations, Hollister Co., Honolulu Cookie Co. and House of Samsonite.
