GROCERY STORES IN ABACO
There are 3 main grocery store in Marsh Harbour to choose from and one Convenience Store (with much longer hours). The largest and best grocery store is Maxwell’s, on Power Line Road. You can find it on the marked map I send in your ‘Welcome Package’ with the keys.

This is Maxwell’s:
Maxwell’s is very much like any large US grocery store – with a large selection to choose from. The ship usually arrives on Monday, so by Wednesday afternoon the shelves are most completely stocked. Maxwell’s Hours are: Mon-Thurs: 8am-7pm; Fri/Sat: 8-8; Sun: 8am-5pm. They have shorter hours (and sometimes are closed all day) on Bahamian Holidays, so you should call them to inquire: (242) 367-2601. See sample prices at the end of this page. PLEASE NOTE: Maxwell’s does NOT accept American Express. I have also been to Maxwell’s more than once when they had a sign on the door saying their credit card system was down, so it was cash only that day.
Abaco Groceries is another good choice. They originally had bulk packaging and still have some of that, but they have smaller sizes now, too, and they have locally grown fresh produce when possible. They are located just north of the airport roundabout, so they are slightly closer to Casuarina Point. Their hours are: Monday – Saturday: 7:30am – 6pm Sundays: 9-4. Hours are subject to change so you can call them to inquire: (242) 367-0278.
Roderick’s Convenience Store is open from 7 am to 11 pm EVERY DAY – ALL YEAR! Their phone number is: 242-367-3237.
Some groceries are quite a bit more expensive in Abaco than in the US, because most are imported from the US. To give you an idea of pricing, here are some sample prices from Maxwell’s in August 2017:
