Is there any discernable difference between the Carrefour in Cole Bay and the one on Bush Road? Any reason to choose one over the other? Arriving next weekend to Pelican Key and just planning out our grocery run. Appreciate any opinions. Thanks!

The Carrefour on Bush Rd in Cay Hill is slightly larger.
But both are a good size and carry the same stuff.
If you don't have a car, it is easier to get to the Bush Road location by taking a small public bus, only $2. You would need to take two buses to get to the store in Cole Bay. If you are in Pelican, Market Garden is right beside Burger King at the end of Billy Folly Road. It is much closer but not as big as the Carrefour stores however it has a pretty good selection.

Cheers

Union road near the roundabout is a super store, Rhine road is more of an express. Same prices!

Colour1 - Bush Rd is the largest of all the Carrefour locations. The express ones are in Cupecoy.

@Colour 1 There is also an express store in Porto Cupecoy, in addition to the one in Jordan Village, but neither is close to the OP.

As @BillandElaine point out, the two closest Carrefour stores are both larger supermarkets, with the one on Bush Road in the Cay Hill/Philipsburg area being slightly larger, but the one on Union Road in Cole Bay being the closest. We have stayed in both Pelican Key and on Simpson Bay Beach and our favourite is the Carrefour on Union Road for both selection and convenience.

Vegas--both stores carry roughly the same things. However, the one in Cole Bay has more fish. The one at Bush Road usually has more meat, has more wine and usually more wine specials, and much more liquor. I prefer the one at Bush Road. laugh

A good local store is Greens Grocery in Cole Bay. Formerly Daily Extra. Good for daily staples. Good Liquor and wine selection. Reasonable prices. Proud to say that in 7 weeks I never set foot in rip off Market Garden.
