It’s official. The Queen Kaʻahumanu Center today announced Bath & Body Works will open a store at the center this fall, becoming the first neighbor island location for the national retailer, and it’s first store on Maui.
Bath & Body Works is one of the leading specialty retailers of personal care products and home fragrance.
The store will offer customers access to affordable luxuries in pampering products, fragrances and gifts for every occasion. Collections offered include Signature Collection, White Barn Home Fragrance, Bath & Body Works Hand Soap & Sanitizers, Aromatherapy and True Blue Spa.
“Bath & Body Works is an innovative retailer and great compliment to our expanding family of national names,” said Todd A. Vines, marketing manager for Queen Kaʻahumanu Center in today’s announcement. “We’re proud that Bath & Body Works chose Queen Kaʻahumanu Center for its first Hawaiʻi location outside of Oʻahu.”
In June Maui Now reported that the retail chain submitted an application for a $706,000 building permit  to occupy space within the Queen Kaʻahumanu Shopping Center in Kahului.
