St Thomas and St John

United States Virgin Islands

   What the Frequent Traveler Knows

Shopping on the Islands

Shopping Tips

  • Try not to just wear swimsuits or shirtless when shopping. You will receive a much friendlier reception from sales people if you are covered up when walking around shopping areas and entering stores.
  • There are a lot of jewelry stores on St. Thomas. Many of the family run stores so bargain or haggle on the price, so be prepared to make offers lower than the original or ticket price
  • - Say 'Good _____ (Morning, Day, Afternoon)' to salespeople before starting a conversation. Locals are very mannered, and this small gesture goes a long way.

Food Shopping

St Thomas

If you are staying on St John it is better to shop for food items on St Thomas and take them back with you on the ferry. This will give you a better selection and save a few dollars.

The greatest density of stores is in Charlotte Amalie. The principal street there is Dronningens Gade, better known as Main Street. Parallel to Main Street is Back Street and Waterfront. Stores line each of these main roads, and in between the three roads are side streets and alleys where even more shops are located.  In the alleys, like Royal Dane Mall, Palm Passage and Riise Alley, you will find many unique shops and boutiques. The stores in Charlotte Amalie are housed in and among historical buildings; so shopping and sightseeing in one trip is easy. Small cozy restaurants and a couple fun bars are located among the stores, perfect for lunch or a refreshing drink.
