Big Island businesses have been gearing up for Cyber Monday, with coffee shops, day spas, restaurants, plant shops and clothing stores offering discounts of up to 40%.

Here’s a look at five companies, some which are offering in-person sales to go with their one online sales:

Kona Coffee and Tea Company: The family-run cafe on Palani Road said Cyber Monday is their biggest sale of the year.

“We have all hands on deck,” said Marc Beauregard, the company’s head of marketing. “We have family friends working in the packing room going nuts.

“I think because the price of Kona Coffee is more expensive than others, because we pay our pickers fair wages, instead of, say in Brazil. … So a lot of people wait until this time of the year to buy Kona coffee. Some people buy once a year and it’s Monday.”

For Cyber Monday, Kona Coffee and Tea offers 20% off off all bagged coffee online. The sale ends Monday at midnight. Everything in the store also is 20% off, including coffee, food, pastries and merchandise.


It’s also a good time to buy because it’s harvest season.

“Everything is roasted fresh and shipped fresh out of the roaster, so it’s a good opportunity to get a fresh crop,” Beauregard said. “Right now, it’s the best most immediate fresh coffee that you can get.”

Manō Wear Hawaiʻi: The clothing shop located in Kona Shopping Village sells bikinis and active clothing. Its Cyber Monday sale includes 30% off everything online (and storewide) and 40% off yoga pants.

“It’s our second year participating in Cyber Monday and we’re really excited,” owner Linnea Roberts said. “Last year was a bit slower, but we just opened up.”

Roberts designs bikinis and activewear for the everyday surfer, paddler, yogi and runner who wants it to be practical but also cute, comfortable and quick to dry.


“My product is designed in Hawaiʻi,” she said. “It’s made for vigorous exercise, made to stay in place, but still have a feminine design to it.”

Roberts is working on a Holiday Giveaway as well, including giving away a free workout ‘set’ including a top and bottom, which will be featured on the website and social media accounts.

Magics Beach Grill: The beachfront restaurant that offers Hawaiian fusion fare, cocktails and brunch is participating in its first Cyber Monday sale, with 25% off hydro flasks (water bottles, wine coolers, coffee mugs) in the store for Cyber Monday, as well as discounted gift cards, which can be purchased online or in store.

“A lot of our guests come in looking for Christmas present ideas,” said Peggy Szelinski, general manager. “For gift cards, it’s buy $100, get $120, buy $250, get $300, buy $500, get $600.”

Hawaiʻi Sanctuary by Saima: For Cyber Monday, the day spa is offering online discounts on gift cards for an array of services, including: massage, facials, and yoga, barre and pilates classes.


The sale: $50 gift card, 5% off; $100 gift card, 8% off; $150 gift card, 9% off; $200 gift card, 10% off; $250 gift card, 12% off; and $500 gift card, 15% off.

The only thing you can’t do is stack discounts with the gift cards.

“We give 20% off for birthdays and 20% off for first responders, police, firefighters, lifeguards, etc,” said Jan Egge, co-owner of the spa with his wife Saima Ahmad, explained. “So you wouldn’t get those discounts as well.”

Their most popular service is couples massages.

“We have a couples massage loft; it’s candlelit, with a little lounge area you can relax in beforehand,” Egge said. “Couples come in for anniversary, honeymoon, birthday, special occasions. So we love to offer that at our spa.”

The Kona Treehouse: The botanical boutique that offers plants, flowers, greeting cards, home decor and more in Holualoa is offering 15% off all electronic gift cards on Cyber Monday Sale.

The e-gift card sale will include their new sister store, Petals & Provisions, which opened in Kona.

“I am born and raised in Kona, so we’re very supportive of local business and supporting lots of local vendors,” said Mandi Post, owner of The Kona Treehouse. “We get most of our plants and flowers locally, sometimes, from Oʻahu or Maui, but for the most part, 95% of what we do is on island. A lot of our plants come from Hilo.”

With about nine on staff, the Kona Treehouse is gearing up for the busy holiday season.

“It really doesn’t stop until the New Year,” Post said. “We started decorating the shop for Christmas a few weeks ago, but this weekend were focusing on decorating for the holidays.”
