Several Maui business are featured in a unique series of Hi Biz ornaments, a first-ever collaboration between 27 local Hawaiʻi businesses. The public is invited to deck their tree with island business inspired ornaments as a fun way to support their favorite local eateries and businesses this holiday season. Among the Maui businesses included are: Maui Brewing Company, Sabado Studio & Boutique and Kupu Spirits.
Other companies with a Maui presence include: Cinnamon Girl, Crazy Shirts, Hawaiian Airlines, Pictures Plus and Zippy’s.
“Each ornament truly celebrates the business it represents—from the iconic loco moco plate at Rainbows Drive-In and onolicious Zip Min at Zippy’s to the hibiscus flower logo at Hawaiian Airlines and bowling pin and ball for Aiea Bowl—anyone who has spent time in Hawaiʻi will recognize some of their favorite spots represented,” said Kira Kaloi, Marketing Director. “This new program is a way for us to allow our shoppers to really ‘buy local.’ Not only are the ornaments made and designed right here in the islands, but they also support the businesses they represent.”
The new program was created by Pictures Plus and CocoNene as a way to promote island businesses during the holiday season.
“This year’s limited-edition inaugural collection features 27 beloved companies across Hawaiʻi and is the perfect stocking stuffer or gift idea for anyone who wants a little aloha spirit in their home this holiday season,” said creators. “All wood ornaments were crafted in Kapolei to ensure that customers receive a beautiful high-quality ornament.”
