Waikoloa Beach Resort, Hawai‘i—Queens’ MarketPlace continues to grow and evolve, as new and expanding businesses enhance the total shopping experience of the popular Waikoloa Beach Resort mall. Recently opened Harry Wishard Gallery and Century 21 All Islands, plus a larger space for Blue Wilderness Dive Adventures, bring additional fine Hawai‘i arts, real estate services and ocean activities into the Queens’ MarketPlace ‘ohana, just in time for the holiday season.
“We are feeling a recent sense of energy and optimism,” said Waikoloa Beach Resort Vice President of Resort Operations Scott Head, “These three new venues, plus Ippy’s Hawaiian Barbeque and Lemongrass Express restaurants joining us soon, bring excitement into Waikoloa. And as visitors, kama‘āina and our seasonal ‘snow birds’ come to Queens’ MarketPlace to check out what’s new, it’s going to be a lot of fun, and good for all of us.”
From mauka to makai, acclaimed Hawai‘i artist Harry Wishard brings the fine works of art that delight upcountry Waimea customers into a second location by the ocean at Queens’ MarketPlace. Open since early November, the Gallery features Wishard’s evocative oil paintings of Hawai‘i and around the world, in addition to an eclectic group of fine Hawai‘i artists such as Kathy Long, Victoria McCormick, Lynn Capell, Mary Koski, Ed Kayton and other favorite island artists.
