no customs duties on most merchandise, and there are no local luxury
or sales taxes on purchases you make on St. Croix. U.S. citizens qualify for a duty-free
of $1,600.00 per person. Gift
packages, worth $100 or less, have no limit and can be shipped back to the
mainland U.S via the U.S. Post Office. There is a limit of five cartons of
duty-free cigarettes. You may bring up to five fifths of liquor duty-free and
you can also bring another fifth of a locally produced liquor such as Captain
Morgan Rum and Cruzan Rum.

You don't need to go to St. Thomas to get the best prices on name brand items
such as watches and jewelry by Movado, Citizen, Raymond Weil, Kabana, Robert
Coin, Yvel Pearls, Edward Mirell , and Titanium to name just a few.
You will find shopping all
over the island including mid-island in the Sunny Isle shopping center, in Frederiksted
and in Christiansted. Christiansted, the largest town on the island has the most
shopping, but you will also find shopping in Frederiksted, especially when a
cruise ship is in port. The Market Place is also in Frederiksted. It is still
in use, with island grown produce and tropical herbs for
sale. The Sunny Isle shopping center is a great place to
find local jewelry stores with discounted prices.
You'll find other types of shopping such as
Cost-U-Less (our island version of
Costco...without a membership fee),
the Plaza Extra Grocery stores, and the two Kmarts on the
island have great prices for liquor. Be sure to bring home
some of St. Croix's Captain Morgan Rum and Cruzan Rum. You can get light, dark, single
barrel and a large selection of deliciously flavored rums.
