If you keep the product in its original package with the bill of sale, it becomes an easy trouble free process.

It will depend on when you are coming down. Riteway has been sold to the Canadian company that owns Cost-U-Less (North West Company) ... so ...

See story here.

Does anyone know whether the Riteway will continue to operate as Riteway, or will become a Cost U Less?

Hi Carol, It will continue operating under the Riteway name.

Never had a problem bringing frozen beef down thru the US in transit to BVI and no problem at BVI customs as it is for personal consumption.

We brought down a cooler of frozen salmon and a few frozen products we needed (we don't eat meat or chicken and didn't know what supplies would be like on island) and we had no trouble. They only confiscated the organic peanut butter at security (they deemed it a liquid). While we were there we developed a bit of a habit with Crandall's delicious conch or saltfish pates and coconut tarts and so brought a bunch on the ferry to St. Thomas to eat while awaiting our flight. US Customs at the ferry dock searched INSIDE each pate to ensure that it was not beef. Seriously.

Sorry to hear about that cold snap. Sounds painful.
