Say aloha to your gro­ceries in Kauai

Los Angeles Times - - TRAVEL - — Jay Jones

Vis­i­tors to Kauai now can have gro­ceries wait­ing for them when they ar­rive at their rental prop­er­ties. Kauai KISS — which stands for Kauai Is­land Shop­ping Ser­vice — will en­sure that a tourist’s fa­vorite foods are in the pantry and that bev­er­ages are chill­ing in the fridge be­fore they land at Lihue Air­port. The con­cept is sim­ple, said owner Erik Coop­er­smith. He strives to elim­i­nate the has­sle of trekking to a su­per­mar­ket be­fore be­gin­ning a va­ca­tion. Be­fore they leave for Hawaii, cus­tomers email or phone their gro­cery list to KISS. For a fee, the gro­ceries are then wait­ing for them on their ar­rival on Kauai. Coop­er­smith said he doesn’t mark up prices. Cus­tomers pay the reg­is­ter re­ceipt plus the cost of de­liv­ery, which varies depend­ing on where you’re stay­ing. De­liv­er­ies to Ka­paa and Lihue cost $30. Get­ting gro­ceries to Poipu or Princeville runs $45. To Hanalei and Waimea, the cost is $60. Info: (808) 822-5477, www. kauaikiss.com
