We are staying in Coral Bay area and I think there is a small grocery store not to far from where we are staying. Does anyone know if they sell beer and wine there and how late are they open?

We've stayed in Coral Bay a couple of times and have always been able to find what we need at the small grocery store located there. The selection is actually pretty good and the prices aren't that much higher than the Fish Market store in Cruz Bay. It is certainly more convenient than driving back to Cruz Bay. They carry a pretty good selection of beer and wine and also have a little deli and a small selection of fresh fruits and veggies. I'm not sure how late they stay open but we made several runs there around 8 pm to pick up things for dinner. The owner is from Jordan and is very friendly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

USPS is always the least expensive.

Edited to add that a surprising quantity of shipments disappear on their way here, so don't forget to insure the boxes.
