As mentioned in the Hurricane Tips section, it is very important that you stock up on supplies well before the threat of a hurricane appears on the horizon. Essential food items can be purchased from the major supermarkets.
It’s a good idea to visit bulk suppliers like Priced Right and Cost-U-Less for cheaper deals on bulk items like drinking water, batteries and canned goods. See the Buying in Bulk section.
Other items such as torches, tarpaulins or generators can be sourced at the major home centres such as A. L. Thompson’s, Cox Lumber, Kirk Home Centre or Uncle Bill’s. For hurricane shutters, Hydes and Sons has a factory on-Island which makes top-of-the-line hurricane shutters in a variety of colours and styles. Check our Hurricane Preparedness page for more tips on how to prepare in the event of a Hurricane.
