Sponsored by Down to Earth

Down to Earth in Kailua is getting a new home! The store will be expanding as it moves into the former Macy’s Building and is set to open in Fall 2019!

The new location will offer Down to Earth’s expanded selection of deli foods, including take-home pizzas, wok-fried Asian-style bowls, vegetarian sushi, and an array of new salads — all made to order while you watch! There will be sweet potato fries and deep-fried multi-colored vegetable chips to accompany items on the sandwich menu, cold pressed juice, and an extended selection of take home soups. The deli will include the company’s acclaimed hot table, with delicious entrées, a salad bar, fresh juices and smoothies, a great made-to-order sandwich menu, fresh grab-and-go options, and a wide variety of tasty desserts — all made at the store daily from scratch.

Taking identification with its Hawaii roots further, the interior design of Down to Earth’s new Kailua location will incorporate traditional Hawaiian kapa art as a key feature of the décor. The décor will be designed by Philpotts Interiors, Hawaii’s oldest and largest interior design firm.

“Down to Earth started almost 40 years ago with the aim of serving Hawaii’s island communities by providing local, fresh, organic, and natural products—and by promoting a vegetarian lifestyle—that all help to improve the community’s health.  This goal still guides us today,” says Mark Fergusson, Down to Earth CEO.

Down to Earth carries a wide range of natural and organic foods and groceries including dairy products and local fresh organic produce. Down to Earth also has bulk foods, which allow customers to purchase the amount they want and save unnecessary packaging and marketing costs on a wide variety of beans, gains and flours, cereals, candies, and more. Down to Earth has natural and organic body care products and truly green household items and, according to Fergusson, “the most complete range of all-vegetarian and natural, vitamins, supplements, herbs, and homeopathic remedies available in Hawaii.”
