If you are looking for a mall or big brand name stores, unfortunately at this time there are none on the island of St. Vincent.

Kingstown, the capital, is where most of our students go and shop. Instead of malls or “Americanized stores” it is more known for its many street vendors, a select number of souvenir shops, and multipurpose stores that sell various products. There are a few main department stores (Jax, Lanes, Courts, and Coreas) that have everything you could need, but don’t be surprised if you have to dish out some extra cash.

As far as hours go shops in St. Vincent tend to open at around 8 am and close at 4 pm. On Saturdays most of the shops close at 1 pm and very few are open on Sundays.
