A store expansion is like a breath of fresh air, or in this case, fresh food. Rodeo General Store, a Makawao landmark since the '70s recently opened Rodeo General South Maui in the old 7-Eleven location in Kihei, across from Kalama Park.
Rodeo General stocks the usual line of dry goods sundries, staples, cigarettes, beer, wine, liquor, ice and beach supplies. The store's on-island kitchen supplies plenty of healthy grab-and-go items. There is always a good selection of hot, healthy, fresh soups, Rodeo General's famous Makawao Cattle Company Chili and many vegetarian and vegan items, wraps, sandwiches, smoothies and more.
One of the nicest surprises is the fresh coffee bar which features 100 percent Hawaiian Coffee, daily blends and specialty coffees, including espressos, Americanos and lattes.
Rodeo General South Maui will celebrate its grand opening on Saturday, March 24.
Lovers of the grape will be blown away with the incredible wine selection. And the prices of Rodeo General's beer specials rivals any big box discount store.
