Shopping in St. Johns

St. John's is a city that is just about four square miles in size, and if you follow the streets, which are laid out in a grid formation, you'll easily be able to find any shops that are recommended to you.  With duty-free items that are both imported from overseas and made locally, there are plenty of opportunities to pick up gifts and souvenirs to bring home.

The main shopping areas are of course right at the cruise ship dock, at the Heritage Quay Shopping Center which is just outside of the dock are and has a lot of great luxury goods, the Vendor's Mall where you'll find local artisans peddling their wares, at the Heritage Market if you'd like to sample local produce, Redcliffe Quay for artwork and potter, and Woods Mall for your typical mall setting.
