About Carribbean Connection

Our Story

Carribbean Connection is a family-owned business, founded in 1990, and located in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. Greg Conley and his brothers didn’t have experience running a business; however, they were raised on the importance of working hard and treating others well. Those two virtues became the basis of our core values at CC and helped us cover up for our lack of experience as well as, endured us to an amazing community that shared those same values.

Carribbean Connection’s unique blend of products and services, paired with a willingness to adapt and take chances, have resulted in a wholly unique local business with a loyal customer base.

Although not by design initially, the cultural fashion and music zeitgeist pushed forward by the store and it’s staff have promoted a sense of freedom of expression and family in the community. The Carribbean Connection team are happy to see it continue to grow and thrive for 31 years!

Customer self-expression is truly the heart of Carribbean Connection. The founders have certainly not been alone on this journey, as over the years they’ve had many valued team members – from professional body piercers, DJ’s, sales associates, world-class tattoo artists, and of course a loyal and ever-growing legion of customers spanning three generations.

Carribbean Connection is proof that it truly does take a village! The entire team can’t thank each of you enough for the amazing support and loyalty.

Here’s to another 30 years of encouraging self-expression, giving back, and being on the forefront of trendsetting for future generations. We always look forward to welcoming new customers to the family.

Carribbean Connection – where self-expression thrives. Cheers!
