This was my go-to-grocery store during my stay at Sanibel. Was really glad they sold good fresh fruit and juices. Also loved the coffee but most of all I reeeally like the donuts.

Bailey's store has just about everything you need in one spot. Groceries, a general/hardware store, and a liquor store. You can enjoy a great cup of coffee at the coffee bar, buy delicious cakes and other desserts, have your favorite sandwich made to your liking and find a great meat and seafood selection. They even make their own sausages daily!... More

We love a trip to Baileys on Tarpon Bay Rd. just off Periwinkle. The hardware store is very well equipped and the staff are knowledgeable. Connected is the Bailey's Food store: one of two options on the Island...the other being Jerrys. We like Bailey's for the variety, the incredible bakery, fresh produce section and good prices. Lots of parking and... More

Actually was quite disappointed in Bailey's. Basically it is a grocery store and a hardware store together (or next to each other - connected). I expected more touristy and souvenir stuff, but there was actually very little souvenir/touristy stuff and more actual hardware and grocery store items. Good for locals who live on the island, for any touristy/souvenir stuff, go... More

Hi jbrenz, You're right, we are a specialty hardware and grocery store. While we are sad to hear you didn't find what you were looking for, we agree that there are better souvenir stores on Sanibel. Next time you are with us try our handcrafted guacamole and salsas; you might want to take those home instead of a souvenir! Thanks... More

Not a super store, by any means, but it's got everything a tourist or short-timer needs; it even has a hardware store connected to it. Prices are high (e.g. $5 for a small box of cereal), but hey, you're on vacation. Produce is fresh. Selection is good for such a small store.

We did a small shopping trip to get some goodies to watch the super bowl. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We had fresh hoagies made and wanted the peppers and oil and vinegar on the side so it would t get soggy. The guy gave us the sandwich but forgot to give us the extras. We shopped so... More

Huge store that is half grocery and half hardware/general store. Must stop to see this place even if you don't buy anything, but I dare you to not buy something if you walk in the door!
