Next to Holetown, Speightstown is fast becoming the most popular shopping center on the island, although it can hardly be considered to be a mecca when compared to other busy shopping destinations in the region. 

 Queen Street, which is the main road through town, is where you'll have the best bet finding diverse shops, and New Town Square and the Esplanade are the closest things to malls the town has to offer.  For a truly local experience, stop by the vendors market where you'll find fresh produce, various other snacks, and handmade crafts that make for great souvenirs.
