Arecibo's shopping mainly caters to locals more so than tourists, but you can take advantage of the duty free possibilities by heading to the mall to pick up some high fashion items. Otherwise, it will be long-term visitors that have the most success shopping here, thanks to the numerous grocery stores, druggists, and florists that exist in this town.
If you're really looking for a deal, however, you should head just out of town to Barceloneta where the Puerto Rico Premium Outlets are located. With 90 shops along one strip, it is the largest outlet mall in the Caribbean, and the best place to find low prices on popular goods.
