Shopping - Duty Free
Don't forget the
duty free shopping on St. Croix! There are no customs duties on most
and there are no local luxury or sales taxes. U.S. citizens are allowed
a duty-free shopping quota of $1,200.00. Additionally, an unlimited
number of gift packages, worth $100 or less, may be mailed to family
and friends. Citizens may also bring back up to five cartons of duty-free
cigarettes and five fifths of US liquor duty-free. An extra fifth can
be taken if it is an U.S. Virgin Islands product such as Cruzan Rum.
Shoppers can find
kitchenware, crystal, jewelry, perfume, cosmetics, liquor, and cigarettes
at prices up to 50% below what they would likely pay for the merchandise
elsewhere. Of course, it is fun to buy local art and crafts as well.
St. Croix has several outlets in which to buy woodwork and other crafts
by local artisans. Be sure you don't go home without a St Croix Hook
There are many shops throughout the island, particularly in Frederiksted
and Christiansted. Christainsted has the bulk of the shops on St. Croix
with Frederiksted having several shops along the waterfront and in the
streets and alleys around the town.
Other shopping areas worth a visit are in Christiansted
at Gallows Bay, Pan Am Pavilion and Caravelle Arcade. Cost-U-Less the
two Kmarts on the island have great prices for liquor.
