Shipping Food Items Prior to Arrival

Postby vacagirl » Tue Feb 12, 2019 12:56 pm

I am definitely planning on buying a lot of my food items on St. John, but for the more expensive items I am wanting to ship those prior to my arrival. How would I go about doing this. About how much is the estimated cost of sending a box, (I realize some of it depends on the #'s involved). Where could I send my box to for safe keeping until I arrive?

I don’t know what ind of food you’re planning on sending but canned or bottled stuff or heavy items like books, sun screen or etc can be sent to Connections either in Cruz Bay or Coral Bay. Check them out

We have shipped via US Priority Mail using the USPS boxes at a fixed rate. I would not do general delivery to the St. John Post Office, too many lost packages. It is worth calling Connections to have them talk you through the process.
