We enjoyed the combination of late-season sales, t-shirt collection, and late summer hours. Were able to shop after supper. Staff was particularly good-natured.

If you need a t-shirt to take home the Star Dept. store has the best selection on the island. They also have the stuff you would need to go to the beach.

It wasn't EXACTLY a department store, like Macy's or J C Penney - it was basically a store for Block Island itself! They provide clothes, honey, jewelry, novelties, souvenirs, shoes, and information on Block Island, like their phone book.

This isn't so much a department store as it is a souvenir shop. Look beyond the everything under the sun labeled "Block Island" and go for the locally produced honey. I bought both the cinnamon and creamy honey and am in honey heaven.
