Food and Essentials
Where ever you are staying you can be sure you are near a shop, there are a large amount of small corner shops dotted around the island although if you are on a budget then it would be worth getting to a supermarket or farm shop.
West – You will find there is a shopping precinct at red houses along with a large supermarket on the corner on the way down to st Brelades Bay from the west side. There is also a Marks and Spencer in this area.
Central – If you are staying in St Helier you are best off going to Grande Marche which is just out of town near Gas Place this is also a large supermarket and should have everything you need.
East – There are plenty of corner shops but if you need a large supermarket you will need to travel towards st Helier, your closest one would be Checkers at Longueville, La Rue Des Pres.
If you need a chemist again there are plenty around.
West – there is one at Redhouses shopping precinct.
Central – there are many but there is one on Roseville Street which is open until 9.30pm.
East – Gorey village has a pharmacy as does Longueville shopping precinct.
If you need any help during your stay we are just a phone call away.
Obviously, this depends on your taste, the main area for clothes shopping is St Helier there is a great selection of clothes shops to suit all tastes. We have many shops that are U.K. based companies but we also have a selection of local companies.
Voisins – this is a department store with a huge selection of franchises including HMV, Miss Selfridge, All Saints, and Clinique – Just to give you an Idea of the varieties. King Street, St Helier.
De Gruchy – Another department store, this one is slightly posher with a more unusual on selection of franchises of all varying prices. King Street, St Helier.
There is a plethora of jewellery shops; Jersey does not put VAT on their products so jewellery works out much more affordable than the UK.
Mother Earth – is a small ethnic shop that sells some beautiful clothes sourced from around the world. You are staying in a VW Camper van so why not hippy it up with a new outfit? Mother Earth is situated on Bath Street, St Helier.
Surf, Dive and Ski – this is, as the name suggests one of the main shops in Jersey for surf clothes and equipment, skate gear and accessories plus the majority of the other extreme sport related equipment, at Colomberie, St Helier
The Central Market – the market itself dates back to 1882, the majority of it is filled with fruit and veg stalls but around the outside there are several small boutique shops, chocolatiers, haberdashery, and model makers suppliers. The central market also has shopper’s lockers so if you have bought a lot and need a break from carrying it here is the answer.
We sell Jersey Camper Hire cushions that are hand made by local artist & craft person Fi de la Mer. She can sew the campervan in a colour of your choice plus put your name or any personal message on too. Cushion covers are all made to order so we will take your details and post it on to you when it is ready, it’s hardly an instant souvenir but it will however be one of a kind.
Great places for souvenirs I think are of a place worth remembering and that is Durrell and you know you are buying a souvenir for a good cause because the proceeds go to the preservation of endangered species of animals.
Other fun and interesting places to visit for souvenirs are Ransoms Garden Centre, St Peter’s Garden Centre and Holme Grown. If you are stuck for ideas you could always go for a walk on the beach and see what pretty shells you might find.
