Costco Locations in Hawaii

How to Find a Costco Wholesale Warehouse When You're in Hawaii

By

Founded in 1983 in Seattle, Washington, Costco is the 7th largest retail company in the world.

As of 2012, Costco operates 602 wholesale warehouses worldwide with 435 locations in 40 U.S. States & Puerto Rico with annual revenues of $88.9 billion. As of May 24, 2012, their membership totals 66.5 million cardholders.

As the cost of travel continues to increase, more travelers are chosing to stay in condominium hotels, vacation rentals or vacation club properties, rather than in standard hotels and resorts. One of the main reasons visitors choose this type of accommodation is for the ability to cook some, if not all meals, within the rental unit. This can save considerable money over the cost of dining out for three meals per day.

In recent years, more and more visitors are searching out the big-box stores soon after they arrive in Hawaii in order to stock up for the week or two that they'll be in the islands.

One of the most popular of these stores in Hawaii is Costco, which has seven locations in Hawaii - four on Oahu and one each on Hawaii Island (the Big Island), Kauai and Maui.

Oahu

The Iwilei (Honolulu) Costco is located just off of the Nimitz Highway between downtown Honolulu and Honolulu International Airport. This location has often ranked as the busiest Costco in the USA. An alternative is to take the Kalanianaole Highway (72) east from Waikiki to the Hawaii Kai location.

For visitors staying in the Ko Olina Resort area, however, the Kapolei Costco warehouse is the closest, less than 5 miles and 10 minutes away, just south of the H1 (Queen Liliuokalani Highway) exit 1 heading back towards the airport.

The Waipio Costco location listed below is located near populated residential areas in central Oahu which are generally not convenient for island visitors.

Here are the addresses of the four Costco locations on Oahu:

Additional Tip

With the high cost of gasoline in Hawaii, visitors should keep in mind that all of the Costco's in Hawaii (except the Hawaii Kai and Maui locations) sell gasoline to members - usually at 20-30 cents less per gallon than you'll find at other nearby locations.
