The new Aloha Island Mart convenience store located at the Shell gas station on Mamalahoa Highway in Waimea will celebrate its grand opening with three days of festivities from Jan. 17 – 19.

Customers can enjoy daily give-a-ways, in-store specials, and sweepstakes prizes, including $100 Shell gas cards and a 60-inch HD flat screen TV.

“The grand opening events are our way of thanking the customers for their patience while we constructed the new Aloha Island Mart and Shell fueling station,” said Richard Parry, president and CEO of Aloha Petroleum.

“Over the last few years we’ve focused on enhancing our convenience stores to better serve our customers no matter where they fuel up,” added Parry.

Aloha Island Mart and Shell in Hawaii are part of the Aloha Petroleum group, which was recently ranked 9th among Hawaii’s top 20 companies by Hawaii Business magazine.


The Waimea convenience store is one of eight new/renovated Aloha Island Marts and is the second Aloha Island Mart located next to a Shell fueling station.


Aloha Petroleum purchased Shell’s Hawaii assets in 2010 and continues to operate the Shell retail locations under the Shell brand under a long-term agreement.

“The pairing of Aloha Island Mart and Shell pumps may come as a bit of surprise to some customers,” added Parry.

“But they can rest assured that the brands that they know and trust – whether it be Shell’s V-Power fuel or Aloha Island Mart’s quality food offerings – are still the same.”
