The company uses photographs of Ala Moana Center as its flagship banner image on the properties page of its company website. Over 56 million people visit Ala Moana Center annually.Though there are a few stores (such as Longs Drugs and Sears) which offer products to local residents, many of the Center's stores target the tourist economy on which it so heavily relies.

INSERT_OR_UPDATE GAEA 8401893 1 en N 1 N Royal Hawaiian Center N http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Hawaiian_Center "Royal Hawaiian Center, formerly Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, is a four-level, open-air commercial retail complex located near the center of Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii. At present, Royal Hawaiian Center occupies more than 310,000 square feet (29,000 m2) and extends across three blocks of Kalakaua Avenue. In July 2005, on the eve of its 25th year in operation, work began on an extensive $115 million renovation program. By June 2008, renovation and expansion work were declared complete. In addition to renovation work on the physical structure, Royal Hawaiian Center has also undergone significant changes in its identity. Since completion of renovation, Royal Hawaiian Center has begun to emphasize its role as a gathering place for both visitors and local residents alike, not merely for its commercial appeal, but also its notable cultural features and historical significance. At the heart of the complex, Royal Hawaiian Center has a 30,000-square-foot (2,800 m2), ethno-botanically landscaped garden called The Royal Grove, a feature inspired by Waikiki’s historical Helumoa coconut grove, which once had more than 10,000 coconut trees. Royal Hawaiian Center regularly hosts performances of Hawaiian story-telling, dance and music in The Royal Grove.According to the Royal Hawaiian Center website, the complex houses the largest concentration of flagship stores in Hawaii including Cartier, Hermes, Salvatore Ferragamo, Bvlgari, bebe, LeSportsac, Rolex Kaimama Kea, Kate spade, Tourneau, Juicy Couture, and Fendi. Altogether, Royal Hawaiian Center has 110 shops and restaurants, including local and specialty retail establishments, ten anchor restaurants, several casual food eateries, and Waikiki nei, a permanent theatrical venue.The Royal Hawaiian Center property is owned by Kamehameha Schools, and is currently the largest real estate asset of the Kamehameha Schools trust.The land on which Royal Hawaiian Center now sits was once known as Helumoa. Helumoa is a Hawaiian word meaning chicken scratch. This is believed to refer to a sixteenth century Hawaiian legend. In Waikiki: Nine Walks Through Time, the legend is briefly related: According to one legend, Kakuhihewa, chief of O’ahu in the sixteenth century, was playing Hawaiian games one day when a legendary phantom rooster, Ka’auhelemoa, suddenly landed in front of him and began to scratch the earth. Just as suddenly, the rooster disappeared. Kakuhihewa directed his men to plant a coconut in the exact spot where Ka‘auhelemoa had scratched. This coconut came to be known as Helumoa and, in turn, supported a grove of several thousand coconut trees.Helumoa has been the site of several different royal Hawaiian homes. King Kamehameha I resided at Helumoa periodically from 1795 to 1809. King Kamehameha III lived at Helumoa during the 1830s. King Kamehameha V also lived at Helumoa, retaining a summer residence in which he periodically lived. Historically, Helumoa has also been referred to as the King’s Park and Grove. Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop penned the final codicil of her will at Helumoa, in which she bequeathed her land to the Bishop Estate for the establishment of the Kamehameha Schools.Over the decades, and especially during the mid-twentieth century, Waikiki underwent dramatic changes. In a concerted effort to restore part of Helumoa to its original character, Kamehameha schools has devoted more than 30,000 square feet (2,800 m2) of the Royal Hawaiian Center property as The Royal Grove, where coconut palm trees and other native Hawaiian flora are cultivated in an ethno-botanical garden.In 1979, the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center was built upon the area that was once known as the Royal Grove. In 2007 the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center underwent major renovation to add new and upscale tenants, open views to the Royal Hawaiian Hotel and reflect the former Royal Grove and Hawaiian culture.
