Ala Moana Shopping Center: largest mall in Hawaii
This is the largest mall in Hawaii. There are three stories full of shops and a large food court on the bottom floor. It offers everything any mall would have to offer plus some Hawaii tourist shops to buy souveniers and trinkits of the islands.

Pearl Ridge Mall: Shopping away from Honolulu
Pearl Ridge Mall is a quieter atmosphere than Ala Moana Center, or the shopping centers in Waikiki. Stores don't open until 9:30 or 10:00, so don't show up too early. I don't have a favorite shop there, but my husbands fav store is Sears ... go figure! This is the little hut in the middle of a water cress field just in front of Pearl Ridge, Uptown.
What to buy: Be sure to pick up some local music to take back with you. And what's a trip to Hawaii if you don't have a t-shirt that says you were there?
What to pay: A little cheaper than Waikiki, but still a mall is a mall and you can expect to pay higher than dept store prices. If you're there during any major holiday, keep your eyes open for special sales.
