Cost-U-Less is another large warehouse style supermarket as Price Smart, but there is no membership fee. Another nice bonus is that you can receive $5 dollar vouchers off your next shop when you spend a certain amount. It is based in Welches, St. Thomas which is a growing shopping area (and has a small fountain which delights me..!).
Personally, I love the range of vegetables here (they have jalapeno peppers and spring onions that I have not found elsewhere). The big packs of salad and spinach are great too. They have also started to stock a variety of gluten free products in their bakery section too, which I started to notice is growing. They have bread, wraps, cookies and cakes. Their large bags of pecan nuts are the cheapest in town (so far as I have noticed). Great for making pecan cookies! I found the warehouse stores great for buying large bags of nuts to make nut butter or flour with.
The staff are friendly and very helpful. It’s so nice to see a high level of customer service at a large store (which sadly can be lacking here).
These stores used to be known as Super Centre’s but have now been changed to Massy stores. Nothing has changed inside the store, just a re-branding really. I have found this branch of supermarket to have the largest range of gluten free products..ALTHOUGH they still have a few things to learn about cross-contamination! (Gluten free products amongst the regular flour!). The branch at Warrens, St Michael’s has the largest range, and more importantly, have a separate Gluten Free section so there is no cross contamination. They do stock gluten free wraps which are found within the bread section so there may be a cross contamination problem with those. I’ve also come across fresh gluten free bread in the chiller section and also in the frozen section. However, within the separate Gluten Free section there are oats, cereal, biscuits, cake and cookie mixes, bread, pasta and crisps. The branch at the Sky Mall at Haggarts Hall has been refurbished and also has a separate gluten free section under “Healthfoods”.
All supermarkets will also stock cassava flour and sweet potato flour. Try the plantain chips too.
There are branches at Sunset Crest, Holetown, (St James), Warrens, (St. Michael), Worthing, Sargeants Village, Oistins, (Christ Church), Sky Mall (Haggart Hall, St.Michael)
This is like a Costco where you purchase items in bulk and you have to purchase an annual membership. I include this in the supermarket section purely for its selection of nuts which are great for making your own flour. I purchase large bags of almonds to make my own flour. They also stock flaxseed, walnuts and pecans in large bags. They are located in Warrens, St. Michael.
