Be Still My Heart! (I seriously need to get a life.)

With all of the businesses closing around town and in key places like Aloha Tower Marketplace (which we will talk more about a little later), it is always heart-warming to see a new one about to open.

I knew this little place on Bishop Street was under construction but I didn’t know what they would be opening.  My co-workers saw the signs before I did and one of them said, “Evelyn’s gonna be happy!”  Sure enough, they were very right!

A new business is under construction!

Just in case you have not been able to make out the logo on those signs in the window, let me see if I can help you with that… just a little bit.

This is where I say, “Be still my heart!”  What can I say?  You may think that I must be losing it but let me tell you, there were at least two other stunned people who were saying, “7-11?  Right on!”

A new 7-11 in Downtown Honolulu!This is an exciting event for me!  I can’t help it.  This is one of my business favorites!  If you could see my bank account statement, the list of charges would look something like this:

7 Eleven
Longs Drugs
Safeway Store
7 Eleven
Safeway Store
ATM Withdrawal
7 Eleven
Zippy’s Rest
Longs Drugs
Safeway Store
7 Eleven
Fresh Cafe

Well, something like that anyway.  You get the point.  If you work in Downtown Honolulu and did not know about this until now, then you should be excited too!

Finally! Downtown Honolulu has been needing a 7-11 Store for a very, very long time. Life is good!  I already know what I’m going to buy, just because I can!   Work life just got better!

    Too funny! Actually, Gail, I think I’ve been to almost every one of this island! I’m a bit of a 7-11 junkie because they have everything you could possibly want. Usually. Let’s see… Makaha (where I roped in my husband), Waianae (across from Waianae Store), Waianae (on the corner of Farrington and Lunalilo Home Road), Maile (if it’s still there) and Nanakuli. Did I miss anybody?

    I know, I have two on the street I live on! The problem with Downtown is that, if you’re at work and have no car… sigh. This 7-11 brings a much-needed, I-urgently-want-something location for us! 🙂

    Oh, but I do need to spend more time on the West side! That’s a definite! You’re absolutely right, Gail! 🙂

    Are you dropping in for snacking? I usually buy sushi or manapua:)
