Keep It Kaimukī's goal is to highlight and connect our network of neighborhood businesses to create a stronger and more unified community.
Founder Jordan Lee, owner of The Public Pet, started Keep It Kaimukī in 2017. After opening his own urban pet supply store on Waialae Ave, he quickly discovered how eclectic and unique the Kaimukī neighborhood is.
What started as a simple slogan, IG account, and a personal passion project to showcase his own block, has now evolved into a whole movement that has shared this neighborhood and its assortment of businesses with the world.
Now every year on the Saturday following Black Friday (known nationally as Small Business Saturday), Keep it Kaimukī holds our own version called "Keep it Kaimukī Saturday" to kick off the holiday season. During the free, family-friendly event, shoppers can enjoy exclusive, one-day discounts and promotions.
Together with a small team, Keep It Kaimukī continues its mission to shed light on everyone here, what they do, and why we are so special.
