Supercentre is our largest chain here and I'm sure there will be one close to wherever you are staying. Small markets do tend to have higher prices (the 99 chain and the ones you'll find in the more "touristy" areas) than this market. Although 99 convenience stores are owned by Supercentre their prices do tend to be higher. Go to www.supercentre.com for selection and pricing (prices in Bds dollars)

If you go to www.supercentre.com you will be able to get prices for all products imaginable. Just put whatever you're looking for in their search box. It works quite well. All prices are in Bds dollars.

The best ones to shop at for variety and prices are the supercentres and their locations can also be found on the website. They're the largest chain in Barbados.

Where are you staying? Then we can refer you to the store closest to you.

I think you'll find the Super Centres very much like our YIG, Sobey's, IGA, Metro (not sure what chains you have in AB) but the smaller stores like Jordan's have the character and definitely worth a visit.
