Shopping in Gros Islet

In Gros Islet, you'll find that souvenir shopping is easily done inexpensively, but you have to be wary of products that are cheaply made to compensate for the deep discounts. 

The shops closest to the cruise port, such as at the Rodney Bay Mall will generally sell top products like jewelry and crystal for prices higher than what you'll find if you're able to travel just a few extra blocks.  The Gablewood Mall, for instance, is known for sales that rival other shopping centers.  

While each shop varies, you can expect to see operating hours from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 8:00 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.  

Specialty Shops

One of the interesting specialty retailers in the area is Sandals Castries Dive Center. This store is found 6.5 mi. South West of central Gros Islet. Included in the all-inclusive package at Sandals is the Discover Scuba course for those new to diving, and one open water dive a day to previously certified divers. They also offer a host of PADI certification courses at an extra fee. The property is situated on La-Toc Road.

A second option is Harry Edwards Jewelers, which is located a little more than a mile (approximately two kilometers) to the east of Sandals Castries Dive Center. Brand name watches and jewelry are the biggest sellers at Harry Edwards, but you'll also find sun glasses, leather goods, and other accessories. They're located on Jeremie Street.

Diamonds International Landing Villa: Beings a smaller location than a regular Diamonds International doesn't take away from the huge offering of gemstones and precious metals that are available. Brand name time pieces round out the offerings.
