Oahu- Cheapest place to get Pineapples?

Hey oahu ladies...my FSIL seems to be unsure of where to find the cheapest pineapples in oahu...Maybe Costco? I need like a dozen or more..Just saw some of Sophia's pics from her wedding and her reception centerpieces are so cute with the pineapples too!

    Costco has pineapples for about $2.59-2.89 on Oahu.  My WC suggested buying them there because they are more uniform than what you might find somewhere else.  She did say that they might be slightly cheaper in Chinatown.She also said to make sure that they are flat/even on the bottom so that they don't roll over!HTH!

    Chinatown! didn't even think of it. This should be interesting trying to round up a dozen pineapples of the same general size and flat botoms! ;) Thanks for the tip!

    I know Don Quixote sells tons of pineapples, but I haven't ever checked the convex-ness of the bottom.  Don Q is open 24/7 in case you're tight on time!p.s. the produce there is not bad, they would even be yummy to eat!

    Hey Kelsey- when we were there last October- there was a farmer's market in Kaanapali/Kapalua area....right next to the Boss Frog's out there..I forget which days they had it, but they had pineapples! :)

    I couldnt agree more with the above poster! make sure the bottoms are flat or have some sand to "wiggle" them into, on some sort of decorative plate/platform/bowl.

    Yeah, we definitely "tested" the pineapples for wobble at the store before we got them =) We only had 6 pineapples for 5 tables so we didn't have to test too many =P We got ours at Safeway but unless it's on sale, it's cheaper at Costco.

    I would definitely suggest Costco as well... Obviously NOT in Waikiki, they charge like $5 for a piece of pineapple, crazy! :)
