Times Supermarkets started as a dream over 75 years ago on the sugar plantations of Hawaii. Albert and Wallace Teruya, who were sons of Okinawan immigrants, dreamed of creating a successful business in the “land of opportunity” which Hawaii was to thousands of immigrants and their offspring. They succeeded in opening their first supermarket in 1949 and today is one of the leading supermarket operations in Hawaii. Since 1949, Times has grown to include 24 supermarket locations which includes 5 Big Save Markets on the island of Kauai, a small format supermarket on the East Side of Oahu, Shima’s Supermarket, and a Fine Wine and specialty foods shop, Fujioka’s Wine Times. Times Supermarkets also includes 12 pharmacy locations.
