One question we often get from stateside clients looking to relocate is what shopping options they will have on-island. Here is an overview of which stores St. Croix has to offer and which online retailers deliver to the USVI.
Kmart is our one-stop-shop for everything with Sunny Isle and west locations, plus a separate Sears Appliance Center.
A true paradise for island homeowners, Home Depot has made the supplies available and affordable for many DIY home projects not previously possible without shipping in supplies individually.
One thing we have a plethora of is local hardware stores, most notably Gallows Bay Hardware and Caribe Do-It Center.
Markets abound on St. Croix including:
– Plaza Extra East and West
– Pueblo Golden Rock and La Reine
– Food Town / Food Fair
– Seaside Market & Deli
According to the St. Croix Source, we can also look forward to a Save-A-Lot coming soon to Island Crossings Shopping Center.
We are lucky to have many online shopping options available to us. While FedEx and UPS consider us an international destination and charge shipping rates accordingly, the US Postal Service (USPS) is our saving grace offering us the same domestic shipping prices.
