Bermuda Clocktower Mall
About The Clocktower Mall
Located at the Royal Naval Dockyard, you won't surely miss this impressive building that has twin clock towers as part of its front facade. The towers on the two sides of the building are 100-foot high, one having a clock that shows the regular time of the day and the other with a clock that shows the time of the high tide.

The Clocktower building was built in 1856 as a warehouse for the British Navy which once had an active operation at the dockyard. The walls of the building are some 3-foot thick.
In 1990, the Clocktower was converted and re-opened as a shopping mall for the first time with some 10 stores in it. However, now it's a major shopping mall at the western part of Bermuda. With its lower and upper level galleries, the Clocktower Mall has around 20 outlets including boutique stores as well as several outlets of major island brands that have their main branches in Hamilton City and elsewhere. You can get gifts & souvenirs, perfumes & cosmetics, apparels, fashion-ware, jewelry, accessories and many other items.
There are also art galleries and restaurants in the mall. The upper floor of the Clocktower Mall is home to the West End Development Corporation (WEDCO) which is the main administrative authority of the dockyard. The Bermuda Corrections Department is also located in the upper floor.

Visitors' Reviews and Comments
Boyd (Owner, Fare-Trade Bermuda, Clocktower Mall) March 2017
In response to Ron's comments (below):
I guess we all have bad days. Sorry for late response didn't see this post and no one pointed it out. Fair-trade Bermuda is a very busy shop. The customers do frequently steal and they do change the price tags on items. No, really? yes. We do have a sign at the cash stating this and we do have a notice that "prices will be confirmed at cash as customers change the prices". Not everyone reads the sign, including the ones that say "ice cream unwelcome", and "no photos". What to do?
I remember Ron well. Was a very busy day, cruise ship must have been leaving. The price was incorrect on his purchase, i mentioned it to him and gave him option to buy or not. He bought. Its hard when people only have a short amount of time to solve their grievances.
So many of our customers are repeat year after year and so many people leave smiling because they got a good price and had a good experience in our shop that is hard to say what went wrong with Ron. Its not politically correct but customers are not always right and people do have a habit of stealing and doing things they should not. We are sorry Ron had a bad experience. Come and see for yourselves. All are welcome.
We've been in business 25 years, we serve thousands of customers a week, and we strive to create the best possible time in the short amount of time the customer spends in our shop.

Hi I was there last summer and purchased a beautiful coral necklace at the Carole Holding shop. Vanessa The sales manager told me it was genuine Bermuda necklace but after two weeks I returned to the US the color has faded. I paid almost $200, don't buy, this store is a rip off.
Reply from Carole Holding - Owner (December 2015)
This is based on the reply from my manufacturer. The coral used in my necklaces is dyed natural white genuine coral. Many countries cannot sell coral. Most coral now sold is the natural white coral which is usually dyed. Normally the colour does not fade as long as it is kept from water, chemicals such as perfume, makeup etc.
Red coral if sold usually costs thousands of dollars per gram. As mentioned this customer thinks her necklace was about $200.00. I am not sure I have sold any coral for that price perhaps she purchased other items at the same time. Again I am sorry the customer is unhappy. If she has got the necklace wet then this is the reason for loosing the colour. If she has sprayed perfume again the same problem occurs.
I know I never spray perfume on myself anymore since most perfumes are now made from chemicals and not the old enfleurage method, even with silver/gold or pearl jewelry it is not good to spray... I do hope this explanation will help this lady. I assure you the necklace is definitely not fake as she has suggested.

My wife and I visited the clock tower mall last week in particular Fair Trade Bermuda and found the owner Boyd rude and obnoxious. He changed his own sticker price when we got to the register and refused to give us the item at his sticker price. I feel this is extremely bad management on his part because of a dollar I will tell and warn everyone I know not to buy from him. I have already posted on Facebook and will use every known social media to get out the word to stay away.

Hi! I was on the Norwegian Dawn's last voyage there this fall. This was my first trip to Bermuda, and we had a wonderful time! I am trying to find the name of a shop in the clocktower mall where I purchased several items. One of the items was a round silver charm for my pandora bracelet filled with pink sand. The sand fell out very soon after I returned home and I am terribly disappointed. I was hoping to contact the seller, but cannot remember the name of the store (of course I paid cash). It was a beautiful store that sold place mats and kitchen items as well as beautiful lamps and comforters. They also glass items, and polo type shirts. The jewelry was at the counter. Hopefully you know which shop I am referring to and can tell me a name so i can contact them. Thank you!!!!
