Duty-Free Shopping in St. Lucia – Know Before You Go

Duty-free shopping is somewhat unavoidable on all our trips. Especially since the things we buy there are free of taxes and tariffs. For some, a vacation would not be complete without shopping where and when there are stores in the area or place of travel.

Duty-free shopping, fortunately, is also popular in the country of Saint Lucia. There are three known areas where you can go “duty free” shopping. And like I said, you’ll want, even if you don’t have to, to shop at one point every vacation. Since in each duty-free store different products and prices await you.

So here is a quick guide to shopping in Saint Lucia.

Know before you go shopping at one of the many duty-free shops in St. Lucia that you should bring your plane ticket and personal identification, such as a passport. You will need these documents to make any tax-free purchases. There are no exceptions.

Duty-free shopping is available at the following malls in Saint Lucia:

1. The Place Carenage, Castries, which has a souvenir and gift shop right on the main harbour. This place is famous for its good finds in handicrafts and fine jewelry that are ideal as gifts.

2. Seraphine Point, Castries. The pier outlet in this area was installed due to cruise ship visits over the years. Here you can find designer perfumes, crystal china, clothing, cigars, and jewelry.

3. JQ Mall, Rodney Bay. Here, you can go shopping for products from locally known ones to jewelry.

4. Then there is the store at the Hawanorra Airport.

But here are some more tips and things to know when you decide to just take a walk around St. Lucia.

Store hours may differ, but many of the stores are normally open Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 12:30pm and then reopen from 1:30pm to 4:30pm. On Saturdays, most stores are open only in the morning from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with the exception of the major shopping centers that are also open during the afternoon. And on Sundays, except for the shops in the marina, shopping is generally closed.

Lower “duty free” prices are also available island-wide at resorts and shopping malls. But you’d still need a visitor’s ID to get the tax-free offers. This wonderful place really has a lot more to offer than the island itself. Go shopping duty free in Saint Lucia and take home something to remind you of your wonderful vacation in this beautiful country.
