It all started over a sandwich.
“There’s a Subway near where I live in Waipahu, and I go there all the time,” says landscaper Gary Shinn of Hokuahi Lawns. “That’s when I saw the vacant, fenced-in space near the Times Supermarket and it got me to thinking.”
One short month later, Shinn opened up the shop. “Our landscaping shop is pretty isolated, so it wasn’t possible to sell plants at that location,” says Shinn, who has been a landscaper for 38 years. “This spot was perfect. It’s something I’ve always thought about.”
Hokuahi Garden Shop is a full-service outlet, providing a variety of plants, flowers and products to help create the perfect indoor/outdoor garden environment for your home. Business has been building since its opening in December 2016.
