Bermuda Clothing Stores
The Front Street department stores in Hamilton have a full range of fashion items from Europe. And there are many independent boutique shops with ready-to-wear collections. There are also plenty of shops selling beachwear and T-shirts in Bermuda.
By the way, if you are looking for Bermuda's oldest department store Trimingham’s, there is a bad news. The store closed down permanently in July 2005. From a very humble beginning, the store had grown into a giant with a comprehensive range of designer goods such as perfume and clothing. Trimingham’s used to be a very popular shop particularly with the cruise ship visitors. However sadly, they could not sustain the business and finally closed it down.
In general, you can shop 9am to 5pm, Monday through Saturday. On Wednesday evenings (from April through October) Harbor Night celebrations take place at Hamilton, when most of the shops and restaurants on Front Street and surrounding areas remain open till late evening. Also, stores operate on extended hours on Fridays during the Christmas shopping season.
Shopping is best done in Hamilton city because you get a high density of little shops along Front Street, as well as large malls with atrium-style collection of shops. St. George's, which is at the east end, has artisan studios and boutique shops mainly in Hunters Wharf, Penno's Wharf, Somers Wharf, Duke of York Street and Water Street. At the West End, Clocktower Mall at Royal Naval Dockyard is great for shopping.
