    Re: Disappearing establishments

    I believe Foodland is testing the waters on this - Hawaiian Miles, that is.

    That's the HawaiianMiles credit card. I get their e-mail advertisments to apply, which I delete. I'm talking about the HawaiianMiles card that adds mileage with any purchase at Star Market.

    For what it's worth, as soon as Bank of Hawaii started offering a HawaiianMiles card, we cancelled BoA and switched. Payments on time = 12.4 %.

    Will there be any supermarket that will continue with the HawaiianMiles card?
    Personally I hate the Hawaiian Miles card. I missed one payment and got jacked up to 31%. I told my wife the interest due every month outweighs the cost of a free ticket. Personally if BoA goes belly up I could care less. Their projected losses were based on these outrageous interest rates.

    Long ago in the 60's Star's vestibule on the right side played movies for the kids to watch. Movies in 16mm films. I watched Donald Duck, Felix the Cat and others there while my mom shopped.

    This is one of the reasons why if I ever decided to come back to Oahu, all of my childhood memories would be forever erased. Better to remember those old days and places as they are preserved in my mind. Honolulu's changed so much it ain't what it used to be...my old stomping grounds.

    I'll always remember playing Kung Fu the arcade game as a wee lad in that Star Market location's vestibule while my parents were on line.

    Seriously, it's sad to see choices in local grocery stores decline.
