Party platters also available for those on-the-go!

Aloha Petroleum has a chain of convenience stores called Aloha Island Marts which are locally operated across the state. Most of these stores are conveniently located next to an Aloha Gas Station or Shell Gas Station.

Many of the stores have been refreshed and re-imagined with a new Hawaiian-inspired design that embraces its island heritage. The building’s exterior and double-pitched roof along with the wood tones both inside and outside the stores were chosen ┬áto evoke the iconic plantation-style architecture found throughout the Islands. Stores also have an open layout and an abundance of natural light coming from the glass wall entrance.

While all of we haven’t been renovated, the majority of existing stores, and any that have been newly built, have this thoughtfully laid out design in various store sizes.

People think of convenience stores as typically only carrying foods like hot dogs, chips, and soda. However, Aloha Island Marts offer a number of healthy options which include fresh salads, whole fruit, fruit salads, yogurt and healthy beverage items.

The Hawaii Department of Health has a program called, “Choose Healthy Now,” and Aloha Island Marts were the first retail business in the state to adopt the program. With “Choose Healthy Now,” the stores highlight the healthiest food items in the most visible areas. Stores also provide educational materials and add food labels to help customers easily identify these healthier options.

In addition to everyday items like coffee, groceries, snack foods, and soft drinks, a number of Aloha Island Marts also offer a great wine selection and also have a walk-in beer cave for our customers to conveniently shop from a wide selection of beer kept at an ice cold temperature.

For those who have a party with family and friends to go to and need something to bring, stores also offer a variety of party platters such Chinese chicken salad, sushi, fried noodles, and Korean chicken. Customers can find these brochures at Aloha Island Mart stores to place their orders two days in advance.
