Jimmy’s Wines & Spirits
On February 3rd, Gerry (above) shared the news that Jimmy’s is now able to accept credit cards!
Another option that is OPEN ON SUNDAYS is Central Pines Liquors
Central Pines Liquors is located in the Teachers and Salaried Cooperative Credit Union Plaza in Central Pines. They are open from 9 am to 9 pm, Sunday through Thursday, and 9 am to 10 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and they say they accept credit cards.
If you are coming from the airport into Marsh Harbour, turn left by the first gas station (on your left). The gas station is K & S, but it does not have a sign right now. Continue straight at the small roundabout and drive another mile or so and you will see a green & yellow shopping center on your left with a 2 story building next to the street (the Bahamas Power & Light building – BPL). Central Pines Liquors is in the section behind BPL.
Here are some pictures of what they had in stock when they opened after hurricane Dorian:
OTHER OPTIONS: There are some other smaller stores, and I will add them to this list when I have the details. DEUCES LIQUOR STORE is across the street from the St. Francis de Sales Catholic School campus, so it is closer to Casuarina and might be more convenient, and the General Store at the Big Bird Chicken Farm has beer and a small liquor selection, and we expect it to expand soon. More when I know….
THE STORES LISTED BELOW HAVE NOT REOPENED YET AFTER HURRICANE DORIAN. I am leaving them on this page hoping they will be able to reopen soon, and I will be able to help promote them again.
There are three main liquor stores that we use in Marsh Harbour.
(For stores that are open AFTER NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS and on HOLIDAYS click here: Shopping AFTER HOURS/HOLIDAYS)
Bristol Cellars is on Queen Elizabeth Drive. When you drive to Marsh Harbour from the airport or Casuarina Point, you stay on the main road into town, Don Mckay Blvd. Drive all the way to the ONE functioning traffic light (There is a light at the K&S Gas Station corner, but it is not operating.) and turn right on Queen Elizabeth Drive. Bristol Cellars is about a block down on the left. Their hours are: Mon – Fri. 9 am to 6 pm; Sat: 9 am to 4 pm – and they are closed Sundays. Their phone number: (242) 367-2180
If you continue past Bristol Cellars on Queen Elizabeth Drive you will see a shopping cinter on your rights with 700 Wines & Spirits (formerly: A & K Liquors). They are the Kalik (a Bahamian Beer) distributor, and the Kalik is a little less expensive there. Beer in general is expensive in the Bahamas – even the Bahamian Beer brands – Kalik and Sands. Other liquor is less expensive in the Bahamas – at least compared to the prices in Alabama where we live. I am sure it depends on your state’s tax on liquor. 700 Wines & Spirits is also closed on Sundays – leaving you the smaller stores: Borderline and Wildav open on Sundays.
Jimmy’s Wine & Spirits has a nice selection of wines. It is also the Sands Beer distributor and part of the company that actually manufactures Sands Beer. Jimmy’s is on Front Street on the right – across from Mangoes Restaurant. Hours are 9 am to 6 pm – Mondays through Saturdays. (242) 367-2936.
