Central Florida doesn't have any islands, so a new Hawaiian retailer is bringing the islands to Orlando — more specifically, Walt Disney World.
Disney Springs may get a new retailer in Na Hoku, a Hawaiian jewelry store that began tenant build-out on Jan. 21, according to Orange County records. Construction is handled by Orlando-based Validus Construction Services, which has done many projects for Disney, including timeshare construction for the Aulani Resort in Hawaii.
Na Hoku has stores in 11 of the continental U.S. states and a large number in Hawaii. The closest store to Orlando on the East Coast is in McLean, Va., according to the company's website.
The retailer joins a slew of other stores and restaurants underway at Disney Springs that include a new Tommy Bahama store and new restaurants/venues like The Edison, Walt's and the rumored Neverland Tunnel. In addition, other signature restaurants like Homecoming: Florida Kitchen and Southern Shine still are slated to open at the dining and entertainment district.
