Facelift at 50

The Kamaaina Loan tool store at 50 North Market Street is closed today. It is being expanded and brightened and should be ready for business by Tuesday if the paint dries fast enough.

There are lots of changes going on. The Sunday Store at 12 North Market is undergoing an extensive rebuild and will reopen soon.

Not everybody realizes it, but Kamaaina Loan has outlets at 12, 42, 46, 50, 52 and 98 North Market — from one end of the block to the other. And a private parking lot for customers behind 98 (enter from Vineyard Street).
