Default First time going .. Looking for an appliance

Hello all
Its our first time going to Aruba, taking all 3 kids with us and staying @ the Radisson. The hotel said there's a tiny refrigerator in the room, so we thought it would be a good idea to buy ourselves a simple toaster.

Anyone know where I could get one, and at what price range more or less? Is there like a HomeDepot-kind-of-store that locals get their stuff?

I suggest going to a place called EEEZZZs on the street infront of the entrance to Lings. Go to your left towards Quality Apartments. (The High Rises)

Thank you for the suggestion.

I searched for Quality Apartments in google maps, and it found it in front of Divi Village Golf Course, near La Dolce Vita restaurant - is that what you meant?
When searching for "Lings", it gave me "Ling & Sons IGA Super Center", which is more South.

Could you point me to the right place?

Yes you are in the right place. EEEZZZZ is an store that sells small appliances, cookware, nickknacs, etc. at reasonable prices. It is between the Quality and Ling and Son's Grocery store on the road Quality is on. It is on the right hand side.

another idea is bringing the toaster with you...for sure it will b cheaper to buy it in the usa (assuming u r coming frm there)...and it will save u the trip to the store...when u leave, u can leave it as a present to your room cleaner....

If you have a car and will be going shopping anyway, it might be worth it to get a toaster. However, consider what you're going to be paying for the toaster versus what you'd be saving on making your own toast. McDonald's, Dunkin Donuts and Dushi Bagels are within 5 minutes walking distance from the Radison. I go out for a run early in the morning, and am always amazed at the folks carrying back coffee from DD; I always use the coffee maker in my room and bring my own ground coffee. Get to DD by 8 before they run out of muffins.
