ABC Stores is a chain of convenience stores based in Honolulu. Of their 78 stores, 56 are located in the state of Hawaii, with the remaining locations in Guam, Saipan and Las Vegas. The company now generates more than $150 million in annual profits and employs over 900 staff. The stores sell convenience items such as groceries, as well as tourist items and souvenirs. The chain's best-selling items are tourist-oriented products such as Macadamia nuts, sunscreen and sunglasses. The chain was started by Sidney Kosasa, who opened his first store in Waikiki in 1964. The stores were originally named Mister K. Later, in order to make the store name easier to remember, the name of the stores were changed to ABC Stores. The last Mister K was changed to ABC in 2009
