H&K Inc. began as a small Korean convenience store on the corner of Kalakaua Ave and Philips Street in 1977, by Hyo Kyu and Hae Joo Lim. That convenience store has grown into one of the largest Korean owned businesses in Hawaii, Palama Supermarket. There are currently three locations on the island of Oahu, the first location in Kalihi (Central Oahu), the second “Makaloa” location near Waikiki (East Oahu) and the third inside the Waimalu Shopping Center in Aiea. All of our locations strive to provide shoppers with a truly “one stop shopping” experience with shops that provide everything from cosmetics and health foods to services such as a hair salon and a UPS Store.
We stock every day grocery items such as fresh produce, meat and poultry, fish, frozen foods and packaged goods. Produce is purchased both locally from Hawaii growers as well as flown in weekly from our buyers in the mainland and Korea. As a result we are able to provide the best fruits and vegetables at the some of the lowest prices in town. Asian foods, such as kimchee, frozen dumplings, dry noodles and ethnic sauces are also our specialty. We carry a large inventory of Korean appliances, kitchenware and household goods. We also operate a snack restaurant in our Makaloa and Kalihi stores (Waimalu coming soon) where customers are able to order and enjoy a small snack like kimbap (rice, vegetables and meat rolled in roasted seaweed) or a full authentic Korean meal.
With over 39 years of serving the community, our customers trust the quality of Palama Supermarket’s products and rely on us to provide the freshest tastes of Korea.
