“Great General Store”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

Shopped here several times during our stay and had good experiences. Good selection and friendly service. I love the history of this store being passed down through multiple generations of a family!

Great grocery store - best produce on the island. Good liquor prices. The general store portion has a good selection of general merchandise.

“Coming Home to Bailey's”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

My parents have lived on Sanibel for more than twenty years and from day one shop at Bailey's. It's "our" family store. Recent additions such as the Coffee Bar have only made it more attractive. So whatever you're looking for, friendly people will help you find it. Just drop by.

Alwayshoptoeatwell,

Thank you for your review and your business. We are glad you stopped by. Our Coffee Bar has recently added "Cool Brew", cold brewed coffee to our selections. It is the smoothest coffee you will ever taste. Come on back and try one.

“Good alternative”
Reviewed 26 October 2013 via mobile

Great place to shop for groceries when you don't want to drive off the island. Your gonna pay a toll to leave and come back. A little pricy but not too over priced. Good customer service, nice brown grocery bags with handles.

“Save yourself some time and just shop here!”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

We went to Publix when we first arrived in Fort Myers thinking we would save money. WRONG. We then we to Bailey's and was pleasantly surprised! It is very affordable and on par with Krogers where we are from. Fresh produce, meat and seafood.. a wonderful bakery, a place to rent DVDs, friendly employees.....Baileys has it all!
