QUEENS’ MARKETPLACE | CELEBRATING 10 YEARS 13 Tenant spotlight PERSIMMON Persimmon has found a cozy home at Queens’ MarketPlace. Around since nearly the inception of the “Gathering place of the Kohala Coast,” the store has gained a reputation for having an unrivaled assortment of contemporary women’s clothing, swim, shoes, accessories and locally designed jewelry items, as well as home decor and bath and body items. “Whether you are shopping for yourself or someone special, you can count on the Persimmon girls to help you find that perfect something — or somethings,” said Jackie Trask, the buyer and store manager at Persimmon. Persimmon has seen the growth of Queens’ MarketPlace firsthand through the last decade, and what Trask said sets it apart is having something for everyone. “Their wide array of vendors really give tourists and locals alike so many options for food, shopping, health and beauty and entertainment,” Jackie said. “From events like movie’s under the stars to weekly hula shows and hawaiian quilting classes, there is something to do everyday of the week here. By including the community in family-friendly events throughout the year, they have become an integral part of Hawaii Island.” Locally owned and operated, the Persimmon crew understands the idea of community. The store even gives a percentage of proceeds from monthly events to Big Island charities and organizations. Coincidentally, being a part of the Queens’ MarketPlace community has been a highlight for Persimmon. “Our time at Queens’ MarketPlace has been full of so many great memories. One of the best parts is the relationships made between us and our customers, neighboring shops and Queens’ management crew,” Jackie said. “It gives us a sense of ohana everyday. It’s fun to be able to come to work and talk story and catch up with our friends here.” Persimmon will celebrate its own 10-year anniversary with a sale in October, a way to show appreciation to its loyal customers. “Thank you to everyone who has shopped, laughed a lot and cried with us these past 10 years,” Trask said. “We look forward to dressing you now and in the future.” THE PRESENT LEGENDARY SHOPPING & DINING KingsShops.com | 808.886.8811 CONGRATULATIONS QUEENS’ MARKETPLACE ON YOUR 10th ANNIVERSARY!
