This month Down to Earth celebrates the Grand Re-Opening of its Kahului store at 305 Dairy Road on Maui. The event marks the completion of a major renovation and expansion that converted 3,000 square feet of storage space into retail space, for a total of 9,000 square feet.

We more than doubled the size of the chill and frozen department, nearly doubled the size of the bulk food department, greatly improved the deli, and we expanded the wellness, grocery, and produce departments.
