This Saturday we are returning for the first time since Irma. As in the past, we will be staying at OBBR. Where (anywhere on the island) would you do your initial grocery shopping for the week? Where is it located? Where would you buy your adult beverages for the week?
That was my concern WB, we want to stop at Super U in Marigot on way to Bleu in GC, but I don't want all of our possessions (albeit in the enclosed trunk) gone on the first day. Is that a reasonable thought?

Sorry, I was talking about from the direction of the airport, versus OBBR, which is the opposite direction, not coming directly from the airport to the grocery store. The post got kind of confused. Do NOT leave your stuff in the car from the airport and go to the grocery store. Super U in Hope Estate is 5 minutes from Grand Case. Go drop off your stuff at the hotel and then go do your shopping.

Well if it was me.......... I wouldn’t shop and would let Jeannie Gee of Shopndrop do my shopping for me. Easy to order and pay on line and easier yet to arrive at your destination to find everything neatly stowed in your kitchen and the drinks chilln’ in the fridge. But I hate to shop and only do so in necessity after we’re already checked in and settled at our resort.

Hope estate appears to have everything Super U Marigot does and is way less chaotic . Helpful hint. If you have some Euro coins in a drawer bring them. You cant get a real cart at either Super U without a coin to unlock. Unless you find a stragler.
Its not so much fun using the baby plastic carts that you have to abandon at the checkout line.
Also, you’ll have to buy reusable grocery bags. You see a ton of these on the plane home.
Regarding coins, a US quarter works just fine to unlock the cart.. And regarding reusable bags, we have bought the bags there at Super U the past couple of trips, and then put them in the baggage going down to SXM, no problem.
If you don't want to go into Marigot take the back way from OBBR past L'Oasis restaurant towards Orient. After the school take a left and that puts you on the middle road and toward Pinel Ferry road and on to Grand Case past the GC airport.
But don't go all the way to GC instead at the round about instead of right to Pinel Ferry go around and on left is Hope Estate where there is another Super U.
