The Outlets of Maui, a retail and restaurant center under construction in the space once occupied by the former Lahaina Center, is scheduled for a soft opening Thursday, according to information released by the Maui Visitors Bureau.
While some of the stores will be ready for the busy Black Friday crowd, a re-grand opening is scheduled for December 6, after the Thanksgiving holiday.
Despite a “soft opening” announcement for Nov. 21, The Outlets of Maui had yet to install its fire protection system, and has not undergone its fire inspection yet, authorities tell Maui Now.
Officials with the Maui Visitors Bureau say, The Outlets of Maui will house an estimated 35 retail shops and restaurants, including Coach, Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors, Brooks Brothers, and Calvin Klein.
The property, located at the corner of Pāpalaua and Front Streets in Lahaina, underwent architectural enhancements in recent months as part of the transformation.
The Outlets of Maui is being marketed as the second outlet location in the state, and the first on Maui.
According to The Outlets of Maui website, other stores identified as tenants include: ABC Stores; Adidas; Banana Republic Factory Store; Brooks Brothers Factory Store; Calvin Klein; Carter’s Babies & Kids; Coach; Cold Stone Creamery; Crocs; Gap Factory Store; Guess Factory Store; Hard Rock Cafe; Hilo Hattie Outlet; Izod; Kay Jewelers Outlet; Lucky Brand Outlet; Maui Sunglass; Michael Kors; Ono Gelato Company; Perfumania; PI Restaurant; Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse; Sanuk; The Luggage Factory; Tommy Hilfiger; Warren & Annabelle’s; Wilsons Leather; and Wyndham Vacation Resorts.
