Honolulu – Local business accelerator, Mana Up, builds on the success of its retail initiative, House of Mana Up, and a partnership with Prince Resorts Hawai‘i by expanding in Waikiki with a new location opening at Prince Waikiki on Wednesday, December 7.
House of Mana Up is an online store and now four brick-and-mortar shops across O‘ahu and Hawai‘i Island–all featuring products and entrepreneurs who participated in the Mana Up accelerator, a business program designed to grow the local economy and provide jobs for locals.
The O‘ahu-based company recently debuted two locations this year on Hawai‘i Island including one at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel–also operated by the Prince Resorts Hawaii–and another at the Mauna Loa Visitor Center. The third House of Mana Up location to open this year will integrate elevated local shopping within the tourist experience at Prince Waikiki, in an effort to bring world-class Hawai‘i products to visitors. Additionally, exclusive activations will be offered to the hotel’s group and events team for an enhanced guest experience.
With the anticipated return of Japanese visitors in 2023, Prince Waikiki and House of Mana Up also look forward to providing a fresh and interesting retail experience to share the ingredients, culture and stories found across the Hawaiian Islands with this audience–all through products from local chocolate to Hawai‘i made candles.
The shop located in the lobby of Prince Waikiki, next to the Accents gift shop, opens on December 7, 2022 just in time for the holiday season.
