Shopping in Bridgetown

The streets of Bridgetown are lined with great shopping opportunities so fully it almost doesn't matter which part of town you visit – you're likely to find a unique craft or a good deal anywhere.  If you're a serious shopper, however, head to Broad Street which has the highest concentration of duty free shops around.  Behind Broad Street you'll find Swan Sweet which focuses more on shoes and clothing.

In general you'll find shops throughout town to be open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, closing at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday and close on Sunday unless there is a cruise ship in port.  Goods to be on the lookout for include jewelry, perfume, alcohol (especially local rum), tobacco, and clothing.

One of the most unique things about Bridgetown is that you can buy handmade leather shoes cut and shaped to your exact foot right before your eyes.  If local crafts are what you're after, the Pelican Craft Center is where you should go.  No matter what you're hoping to purchase, you can expect to find savings of anywhere from 25 to 50 percent.  

Gifts and Souvenirs

If you're hoping to find some gifts or souvenirs you should consider visiting Cricket Legends Gifts, which is found within northwestern Bridgetown.
