Saks Fifth Avenue opened its first Hawaii store in the newly developed International Market Place in Waikiki. The three-story, 80,000 sf retail build-out is the anchor tenant of the redeveloped shopping center and sells men’s and women’s apparel, shoes, handbags, cosmetics, jewelry and more. The store also includes state of the art lighting, displays and high end finishes throughout. Saks Fifth Avenue held a traditional Hawaiian blessing ceremony at the new store.
