BTW, Long's and Wal-Mart are also probably the better places to buy your souvenirs; much better prices, and that's where many locals stock up on gifts to bring to friends/family on the mainland.

In addition to Long's and Wal-Mart, The Costco by the OGG airport has an excellent selection of Hawaiian food gifts and aloha shirts to take back. And the prices are typical Costco LOW. You might also want to check out one of the ubiquitous ABC stores that dot the island. They occasionally have very good prices on Kona coffee, macadamia nuts, etc.
On your grocery store question, you'll pass a couple stores on your way north to Kapalua. There's a Safeway a little north of Lahaina and a Star Market a few miles north of the Safeway. There's also a Foodland a little hidden in downtown Lahaina which is my favorite place to shop.
Enjoy your trip!
