Shopping:
There is no sales tax as you shop in Bermuda, however that doesn’t make things any cheaper except for a few items due to the fact that there are import duties on goods and most of the items in Bermuda are imported. Import duty is a way the government raises funds. Duty varies on the type of goods, but is always included in the price. So, the key to tax free shopping in Bermuda is to go for the locally made quality items which are otherwise not available elsewhere.

The main shopping stores in Bermuda are in Hamilton City. Hamilton Shopping Map shows the popular stores, their locations and main product offerings. Other popular shopping areas include the Clocktower Mall in Royal Naval Dockyard (at the western end, quite convenient for the cruise ship passengers docking there) and Somers Wharf in St. George’s Town (at the eastern end).

In general, shopping hours are usually 9am to 5pm, Monday through Saturday. Except for the stores at Clocktower Mall in Dockyard, shops in Bermuda are usually closed on Sundays and other public holidays. So, if you reach Hamilton City after 5pm on a week day or anytime on Sunday, it will look quite deserted. However, the Supermarkets remain open for extended hours (usually from 8am to 10pm Monday-Saturday and 1pm – 5pm on Sundays).

Harbor Nights celebration takes place on every Wednesday in Hamilton city (April through September), when most of the shops and restaurants on Front street remain open till late evening. Many stores & shops on such nights are usually open until 9pm and some even beyond. Same is the case in St George on Tuesdays when Market Nights pare celebrated. Also, stores stay open late on Fridays during the Christmas shopping season.

Television:
Since 2014, the Bermuda Broadcasting Company (BBC, not to be confused with the BBC in the UK) is the sole company operating television stations on Bermuda. All TV channels can theoretically be picked up over the air without the need of cable, but, because of the weak signal by the broadcast stations, cable is very much necessary for reception purposes. Satellite television is also used, but was unreliable when only satellites available are those mainly servicing the United States of America, Canada, Latin America and placing on the edge of the reception area. Digital TV cable is available, as is wireless.

Radio:
Radio broadcast stations: AM 5, FM 9, shortwave 1. There are four main broadcasting companies in Bermuda: LTT Broadcasting Co. Ltd. (Irie), The Bermuda Broadcasting Company Ltd. (ZFB/ZBM)(not to be confused with BBC of UK), DeFontes Broadcasting (VSB) & Inter-Island Communications Ltd. (Hott/Magic). The Government of Bermuda also operates a radio station at 1610 AM / 100.1 FM to broadcast emergency information, such as hurricane watches and warnings. American satellite radio is also available.
