What are you looking for? Where will you find it?
And is it a bargain?
by Martin Kreiner
Let’s take the last question first: Is it a bargain? Back
home, at the low to middle end, you’ve got tons of
discount stores fulfilling your shopping needs. On the
high end you have competitive jewellery stores and famous
name designer outlets in every mall in North America and the
Port Zante, our major shopping mall, is growing at an incredible rate. A dazzling
array of new shops is being built featuring famous name jewellery, perfume and clothing
lines. There are shops catering to every pocketbook, every taste, including souvenir
shops with the ubiquitous t-shirts, post cards, maps, gadgets and gimmicks that may only
be found here. There will be new bars and
restaurants, possibly a hotel, places to see
and be seen. Port Zante has gone from a
dull, hot space in the sun to a hot place to
see and be seen. [ read more
