Shopping in Falkland Island

Costs tend to be slightly higher than in the UK as much has to be imported, though smaller luxury goods may be cheaper. There is a good range of shops in Stanley selling the same type of goods found in a small town in Britain and a variety of souvenirs. Sweaters made from pure Falkland wool and local art, jewellery made from Falkland Islands' pebbles, coins, stamps and books are also sold. Fresh vegetables are available all year round but many Islanders are virtually self-sufficient. Print film is available but it is advisable to bring a supply.

The Falkland Islands Company is the largest retailer in the Islands with eight outlets situated in two shopping centres in Stanley and three retail outlets and a restaurant at the Mount Pleasant Shopping Centre.

The Capstan Gift Shop was opened in 2001 to meet the needs of the rapidly expanding tourist industry as well as improving the retail facilities for Islanders. The best range of souvenirs and gifts in the Islands can be viewed in the spacious and modern shop situated on the harbour front across the road from the supermarket. The shop also offers a full range of cameras, photographic products, watches and jewellery from budget to designer items. Within the Capstan Gift Shop, you will also find the main outlets for Falkland Islands Craft products with the major local producers having their own sales areas.

Shopping hours are generally Monday-Saturday, 8 am-6 pm; some shops may stay open until 9 pm in some areas. Earlier closing times on Sundays.

It is nearly impossible to exchange Falklands currency outside of the islands, so be sure to exchange all money prior to leaving the islands.
