St Helier is the main focal point for shopping. Despite its small stature it has a good mix of retail stores featuring familiar high street brands as well as a wealth of independent smaller shops and boutiques, all within safe and easy walking distance of each other.
No trip to Jersey is complete without browsing around the local shops and with no VAT here you could find yourself a bargain or two!
The pedestrian precincts include King Street, where Voisins and De Gruchy department stores can be found. Queen Street, Bath Street and particularly Halkett Street are all go-to spots for designer labels. The small luxury boutiques and men’s clothing shops take up much of the area. Popular specialities of the island when it comes to quaint gift & souvenirs shops, and a little self-indulgence, are jewellery, pearls, unique local pottery, locally produced arts & crafts, homemade fudge and of course the famous knitwear. The island offers a diversity of products, whether you are shopping for yourself or searching for that perfect gift to take home to friends and family. Jersey only has a 5 per cent Goods and Services Tax compared to the United Kingdom’s 20 per cent. It should be noted, however, that some items such as clothing can be a little more expensive than on the mainland.
Jersey is an island steeped in history and culture and there are many markets and farm shops to visit around the island, each offering a unique shopping experience.
Keep a lookout for the honesty boxes as you travel around the island!
