Aloha ,

We wanted our community to be the first to know that a deal has been struck to bring a local gas station to the Laie Shopping Center. Land manager Hawaii Reserves, Inc. (HRI) has reached agreement with Foodland Super Market, Ltd., in partnership with Aloha Petroleum, Ltd., for the station and a convenience store kiosk.

"Our community has benefited for many years from our long-time relationship with Foodland, our anchor tenant at the shopping center," said HRI president, Eric Beaver. "Foodland has been with us since the 1990s and understands our community and values, and we now welcome their partner, Aloha Petroleum."

This is welcome news after negotiations with a Chevron franchisee unfortunately failed to pan out last year.

Jenai S. Wall, Foodland Chairman and CEO, said "We've had a long and successful relationship with Aloha Petroleum, and we know our customers value their product. Thousands of our customers take advantage of the 5-cent per gallon cash discount at participating Aloha Island Marts by showing their Maika'i card."

Wall continued, "We know having a gas station conveniently located in this community is very important to our customers and we are delighted to partner with Aloha Petroleum to provide this added service to the Laie Shopping Center."

Beaver noted that while business terms have been agreed upon between HRI and Foodland, site layout and other details are being finalized. Plans call for the Foodland and Aloha gas station to be in front of the U.S. Post Office on the south side of the shopping center. The exterior design and finishes of the station, such as roof materials and color scheme, will match the shopping center decor. Additional parking stalls will be added to the center once the L&L's restaurant is relocated next to Taco Bell.

The new station is planned to have four fuel dispensers with eight fueling spots and a 500 square-foot kiosk housing a convenience store.

Richard Parry, president and CEO of Aloha Petroleum, Ltd, said, "Aloha is pleased and excited about this new opportunity to partner with Foodland to develop a new fuel station to serve the communities of Laie and Ko'olauloa. The Aloha brand features TOP TIER quality gasoline that exceeds the EPA standards. We look forward to the station opening in early 2015."

We are excited about this new development and will keep everyone updated along the way.
