All good on the island are expensive because of sea freight costs. Very conveniently located. Does a good selection of burgers and chips at lunchtime. Open from 9am to 6pm.

Check out Crom's Bait and Tackle Corner as well as the selection of t-shirts and daily fresh made baked goods! This place has it all!

This general store carries just about anything you would need. They even have fresh bread rolls every day. You can get a hamburger or other fast food and practically any groceries including milk, juice etc. They also carry post cards and t-shirts - you need to check it out.

You will be better served to use the Co op and Joys Store. I found the staff unhelpful and the product over priced compared to other stores. However if you like greasy food this is the place

After a less than flattering review last year I would like to report that things have changed at Thompsons Store. Staff are now friendly and helpful. Great to experience the improvement. Store has almost anything you might need.

Step inside and be refreshed with all sorts of goodies. The roast chickens ahit the spot and the covered area outside makes for a very relaxing atmosphere to sit and have your take-away.
