Shoppers have to leave the island to get their proper fix, but Fort Pierce provides many options not far from the entrance to the mainland. Most of the stores in this area fall under the specialty store category. The Original Discount Furniture store sells reduced-priced mattresses and room sets. In South Beach, you see a mix of high-end and high-value prices, depending on the store.
Just as you reach the mainland, you'll find Chic and Shore Things, a home decor store that stocks the beach-themed and shabby chic items to create the right vibe for your South Beach home. You can find one-of-a-kind and handmade items here to make your home unique. The store even stages the pieces to demonstrate what they would look like in your home.
Buy everything you need for diving and fishing at Dive Odyssea, located right near Chic and Shore Things. In addition to providing rentals and classes, it also sells kayaks, fishing and scuba gear for pros as well as for those who rent first and then decide to stick with these water sports.
You don't have to leave the island for a supermarket, as Seabreeze Food Store supplies groceries for the area. Between shopping trips, grab staples like milk and bread at Lipshitz & Dimaggio South Beach Market. If you prefer a chain supermarket for all of your ingredient needs, Fort Pierce has a Publix on Federal Highway just north of South Beach. To buy your produce at a farmers market, head to Nelson Family Farms in White City.
It has great deals on fresh fruits and vegetables and also sells jams, smoked fish dip, eggs and fresh orange juice.
