At Ace this morning, a shopper said that he was buying gifts for his children because they didnʻt get any presents on Christmas. Another couple said they were looking for household items. A couple from Nuuuli told KVZK News they were buying a brand new refrigerator, a good present for the whole family on Christmas. Another couple said they are looking for a BBQ for their party on New Years eve.
KVZK News also visited our two main popular Grocery Stores KS Mart and TSM Store where shoppers packed the aisles to get their hands on fresh produce, meat and seafood for Christmas and New Year get-togethers.
