SHOP TILL YOU DROP REDUCED ABST WEEKENDS...

It's the perfect time to get your Christmas shopping done, as the Antigua & Barbuda Sales Tax (ABST) is reduced from 15% to 5% over the next two weekends, 14th - 16th December, and 21st - 23rd December.

While store participation in the ABST reduction is voluntary, there are a few places that are taking an extra step to give back to their shoppers with a Customer Appreciation event. Get additional discounts from Abbott's Jewellery & Perfumery, Cattleya Boutique, Colombian Emeralds International, Harper's Office Depot, Lipstick, Paperclips, and The Cork and Basket.

Check out all the shopping options for inspiration, and browse the specials on offer currently around the island. Once your shopping has been completed, peruse our What's On Guide for upcoming events in Antigua.
