We enjoyed going to the Ala Moana Shopping Center. It was convenient by bus. It had a grocery store, otherwise as a shopping centre, it was normal. We loved snorkelling, and landed up buying snorkelling gear at the Sears in this mall.
The mall might have been ordinary, however we really enjoyed eating meals at their food court. You could eat reasonably priced meals from any corner of the world. The food court stalls seemed to be privately owned, and not A&W or Arbys, etc. We especially enjoyed the Hawaiian, Italian, Chinese and Japanese fare.
What to buy: Try the Food Court!

I liked the Ala Moana Shopping center a lot... you can get there by bus or taxi. I would recommend the bus though, which stops at pretty much all the tourist areas in Waikiki and it's only $2 each way.
It was great to browse and check out US shops at the Center that aren't available in Australia. Macy's was nice and I liked Cinnamon Girl a lot. It was a good place for souvenirs as well, and the 4th floor had some great restaurants and cafes..
