Ala Moana Center celebrates New Year with Fukubukuro

Advertiser Staff

On Monday, Jan. 1, Ala Moana Center turns Japanese with Fukubukuro, the New Year tradition that has retailers rewarding their customers. A selection of Ala Moana stores will offer "happy grab bags" — surprise merchandise at 50 percent. Participating stores: Animation Magic, Artlines, Baccarat, Bally, Betsey Johnson, Burberry, Celine, Claire's, Crabtree & Evelyn, Diesel USA, Fendi, Folli Follie, Hawaiian Quilt Collection, LeSportsac, Locals Only, Lupicia Fresh Tea, Max & Co., Pacific Harley-Davidson, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo, Sandal Tree, Sephora, Shanghai Tang, The Compleat Kitchen and Thinker Toys. You won't know what you get until you buy the bag — so don't bother calling to ask — but at half off, it's worth chancing. At higher end stores, expect price ranges in the three digits. Information: 955-9517.
