Natural Food Chain Celebrates a History That Began with a Single Store on Maui


Well before natural food stores became trendy, Down to Earth opened its doors in Wailuku in 1977. Over the past several decades, the all-vegetarian store grew to become a chain, with additional stores in Honolulu, Kailua, Pearlridge and the new Kapolei branch.
