We took a stop here at the mall and I was surprised at how nice the prices were. I had expected the prices to be outrageously high due to the amount of tourists here but the liquor and gifts were priced fairly. I bought many postcards (3 for $1) and there is no doubt that my parent's would have purchased some of the local rum (if only we had space in our luggage). It is a very nice place to walk through and the atmosphere is fairly nice. You may want to walk around before making your choice of what to buy so that you can see the different prices in different shops (some places may be cheaper than others). The people there are also very nice and friendly. It is a good place to walk around and enjoy the shopping here.
By the way, when you drive over there, watch out for the chickens! They tend to just run out on the road!

This is a good place to pick up wine on the island for a reasonable price. They even have half bottles of champagne when you don't want too much. The rum pricing is good but not quite as low as some of the supermarkets. Usually good service.

I purchased 2 bottles of Vodka and 1 bottle of Limoncello. I told the salesman that I would have to pack them in my luggage. He said not to worry, they would be packed to travel. THEY WERE NOT. There was no cushioning in the box and one bottle broke during the flight home. We did not receive the box until 9 pm the night be fore the cruise ended. I sent an email which they never acknowledged.

This place beats any stateside liquor store for quality liquor...place all the cool local stuff you're not going to find easily back home. Colognes & perfumes too. And then there's th cigars & cigarettes (if you're into that sort of thing). Great prices - they beat those you'll find in the airport.

I was directed to this store by the travel agent who helped me select a Caribbean cruise. He advised me that if I had my purchase with them completed before noon, they would deliver it free to the ship (obviously a Big Help if I were to purchase several liters of distilled spirits, for example).

The store was quite crowded with cruise shoppers, who must have had similar advice! The wares were stocked along both sides of a very deep store. Clerks were abundant and eager to assist you find what you were looking for, or to answer questions. They did not carry, for example, an Austrian rum I was seeking. On the other hand, when I asked they directed me to several port- and sherry-finished Scotches, available at amazing prices (amazing to me, of course). It was not long before Ihad selected one bottle of local rum, three liquers, a large bottle of Southern Comfort, and one of the sherry-finished Scotches. All arrived safely at the ship, packed in a very strong cardboard container which I simply placed in my luggage. They arrived safe and sound after the long flight home.

At the back of the store you wander into an area that contains fragrances and various similar gift items. Items purchased here are paid for in this part of the store. My wife found a wonderful value in a perfume, a gift for our office manager.

I was impressed with the selection -- even if they were missing one thing I sought. My wife reported similar variety and value from the perfume end of the establishment.
