HONOLULU (AP) — Department store operator Saks Inc. plans to build a Saks Fifth Avenue in the center of Waikiki.
The Queen Emma Land Co. and shopping mall manager Taubman Centers Inc. said Friday the retailer will be the anchor tenant of a redeveloped International Market Place.
Queen Emma Land is a nonprofit organization that supports The Queen’s Medical Center hospital in Honolulu and its affiliates. Income from the redevelopment of International Market Place will support Queen’s financially.
Saks says the store will be its first full-line Saks Fifth Avenue store in Hawaii. Saks already has an outlet store in Waikele on Oahu.
