The stores open at 09h30 and close around 18h00 with a midday break from 13h00-15h00. The French like their lunchtime!
Front Street in Philipsburg is itself, an experience alone just walking through it, surrounded by the hustle and bustle of busy shoppers with boutiques left and right. In Front Street, there is only one way to buy, Negotiate!
Philipsburg is the place to get jewelry for your wife and a PlayStation for the kids and finish off the day on Great bay beach sipping frozen drinks only a 10 second walk away from the shops. The stores are usually open all day from 09h30 till 18h00, most are open during lunch.
All goods are Duty Free.
Parking in Marigot and Philipsburg can get tough and somehow, everyone still manages to squeeze in!
