Welcome to Star Apparel! A little known fact…STAR is actually an acronym for Sporting Team Authentic and Replica Apparel.
We’ve come a long way since we first opened for business on September 11, 1998. Back then we had a small wall kiosk at the Queen Kaamanu Shopping Center on Maui. Several months later, we moved to Oahu and opened at the Waikele Premiu Outlet Mall. About a year later, we decided to open a second location at the International Market Place in Waikiki. After another year, we decided to open our third location at the Aloha Tower Marketplace. Unfortunately, several months later the tragic events of September 11, 2001 occurred and devastated the economy. In early 2002, we decided close our locations at Waikele and International Market Place. For twelve years between 2002 and 2014, Aloha Tower Marketplace was our sole location.
In late 2013, a local university purchased the Aloha Tower Marketplace with plans to convert the building into a campus with student functionality featuring harbor-front dormitories. Most of the remaining tenants, including us, were given a 30-day notice of lease termination. Instead of rushing into a new lease, we decided to cease operation until an appropriate next location could be found.
In July of 2014 we found an interesting little space at the Windward City Shopping Center in Kaneohe on Oahu. After a few months of lease negotiations and space improvements, Star Apparel re-opened for business in November 2014…and so our story continues!
What We Offer
Star Apparel is best described as a pro team fan shop, specializing in jerseys, head wear and miscellaneous gift items. We offer merchandise for all major American pro sports: NFL football, NBA basketball and MLB baseball.
We are known to offer, “The largest selection of authentic and replica pro team jerseys in the entire state of Hawaii.”
We have a clearance rack offering discounts from 20% up to 70% off the sale price. We frequently update our merchandise so check often for some great deals!
Why We are Different
We are an authorized ‘brick and mortar’ retailer for EVERY major brand in the American pro team business. We have Adidas, Majestic, Ness, New Era, Nike, Reebok. We are truly a rarity in the industry today.
We know there are stores like Champs Sports and Lids Locker Room, but we are a locally owned and operated boutique whereas they are a ‘big box’ corporation with hundreds of locations. With our great store we can offer much more, we have a better focus on jerseys – especially the high-end authentic and on-field jerseys. We have the widest variety where they only have the fads of the year in stock. And if we don’t have the exact jersey you want, we would love to special order it for you.
