For groceries: Starfish Market and Marina Market in Cruz Bay, Joe’s Discount near Shipwreck Landing in Coral Bay. Maiden Apple, health food store, 1st floor of Boulton Centre, T6938781. Liquor and drinks at Cases by the Sea near Coral Bay Watersports, grocery near Shipwreck Tavern, Joe’s Discount and Pickles Deli.
