Retail

There are seven retail shops all located on the Royal Promenade.


General Store - Britto

The general store sells duty free liquor and cigarettes, as well as travel items you may have forgotten to pack (like hair brushes, aspirin, tooth paste etc.). Britto also sells luggage (made by Heys), paintings, and decorations. Everything is fairly expensive—the smallest bag starts at $250—despite the fact that it's all tax and duty free.

Designer Shop
