Even as it faces increased competition from Whole Foods, Down to Earth is slated to open a new store on Oahu in 2011, according to a recent company release and Pacific Business News dispatch. The health food chain–founded on Maui in the ’70s–is also planning to remodel and expand its Kahului store.
Here’s the most curious line in the PBN report: “Down to Earth is the only known all-vegetarian natural foods store in Hawaii.”
Leaving open the possibility, perhaps, that there are unknown all-vegetarian health food stores somewhere on the Islands. Sounds like a great plot for Lost.
