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 deals on items like drinking water, batteries and canned goods (see the Buying in Bulk page).
Other items such as torches, tarpaulins and generators can be sourced at home centres such as A. L. Thompson’s, Kirk Home Centre or Uncle Bill’s.
For hurricane shutters, Hydes & Sons has an on-Island factory which makes top-of-the-line hurricane shutters.
See our Hurricane Preparedness page for more information.
