The Paperie was started by Al and Laurie Wong in 1986. The store was sold to Eldon and Andrea Ching in 1996. Only a few tenants have been in Kahala Mall as long as The Paperie. Customers who shopped at The Paperie when they were children are now bringing their own children to shop in our store. Although nationally recognized paper companies such as Crane & Co., William Arthur, and Caspari have been mainstays of our product mix since our beginning, our buyers continually seek the latest stationery trends by attending gifts shows on the mainland, including the National Stationery Show in New York every May.
