Island Grocery Depot added a second location on Maui today with the opening of a new store in the Lahaina Industrial Park.

“Lahaina finally has a store they can call their own,” said Jon Yasutake, Lahaina’s Island Grocery Depot store manager.

The helpful, friendly team is looking forward to being a part of the growing west side community, Yasutake added.

“We are committed to providing affordable pricing—we work hard to secure the best possible value for residents, small businesses and visitors,” said owner Nelson Okumura.

The company has made a significant investment, bringing 30 new jobs to Lahaina. The 11,584-square-foot offers more than 5,000 items.


The new store has an expansive fresh meat department, grocery and produce departments, and a wide selection of diabetic and natural foods. IGD also carries hard-to-find local specialties, a growing number of local products from area farmers and producers, and Maui’s favorite national brands and bulk sizes.

The IGD team invites the public to shop without a membership fee and enjoy everyday savings.

The business first opened in 1986 as Cash N Carry Warehouse, the company made the name change last year to better reflect its mission of serving Maui’s families.

Island Grocery Depot remains locally and family-owned. IGD and VIP Foodservice are divisions of Valley Isle Produce, founded in 1950 by Roy Okumura. VIP Foodservice is the business-to-business division, which provides ingredients and supplies to Maui restaurants, resorts, healthcare and local retailers.

The company is dedicated to serving its Maui home—whether for business or family needs.


“They have great fresh produce,” said a customer. “When you walk into the store you will see an assortment of fresh flowers to your right… They also carry things that you may need for parties like paper products which you can buy in bulk. Great selection of liquor and prices are always reasonable. Try the chicharon is so ono. They have hot food items which you can pick up for lunch also but go early before they sell out. Staff are helpful if you need something. They also have another location in Lahaina.”

“I was really impressed with their low prices on produce, and most things they carry,” said another shopper. “They have a good selection for making many Asian and Mexican meals. I am in luck!”

“This is the only place I can find decent frozen seafood—snow crab claws, king crab legs and calamari,” said a customer. “The produce prices are very competitive.”

IGD’s Lahaina invites the public to celebrate its grand opening on Saturday, Jan. 16,, which will feature exclusive specials, giveaways and fun for the family from 10 a.m. to noon.

The Lahaina store is located at 58 Kupuohi St. in Lahaina Industrial Park. Call (808) 866.502.


The Kahului store is located at 90 Amala Place. Call (808) 871.2535.

Both stores are open seven days a week, 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, and until 6 p.m. on weekends.
