Andrade Resort Shops were established and owned by husband and wife team Richard and Selma Wheeler in the 1950s. By 1970 there were eleven stores throughout the Islands of Hawaii. Much of the stores’ merchandise was made in Hawaii by other well-known Hawaiian firms such as Alfred Shaheen and Kahala.
The Andrade Resort Shops were known for their colorful clothes – colors that reflected those of the Islands.
