If I'm staying in Coco Palm Gardens (Belnem) and get there about 8:15 pm on a Tuesday will there be anything open within walking distance where I can buy some groceries at that time? Also, how far a walk is it to Kralendijk from there? Would it be possible to walk to somewhere in Kralendijk at that time and get groceries or something to eat?

Rent a car.

There were some people walking just south of the gas station today and I am surprised they did not get run over (I am assuming they didn't). There is no shoulder to walk on, so you are pretty much on the very narrow road with the cars. Walking at night would definitely be hazardous.

No, no grocery stores open that late, except for the two 7-11 type stores (one at Bonaco Gas, formerly Lisa Gas, the other near the big church in town). You are not within walking distance of any food, except maybe Roomer's (but I wouldn't walk that road at night; no sidewalks, very dark, etc.). Almost all restaurants are open till at least 10pm, but you'd need a car.

Staying in Belnem = rent a car. That simple. 10 min drive to Kralendijk...7 mins to main grocery stores. Wouldn't even think about walking. Belnem is a great residential area (where we stay all the time), but relatively speaking, a ways from anything. On the good side, you can definitely walk to the beach! (Bachelor or Windsock)

Yes, Renee is awesome and will have your kitchen fully stocked before you arrive and for a very reasonable fee.

I rented a truck but it's being delivered the morning of the 11th. I didn't want to pay for an extra day and only have use for a few hours. I will contact Renee and get something that I can cook for that night. Thanks to all that answered. I would have starved.

There is a very small store close to Plaza..Jokes? Not sure if it is still open or what are their hours. Across from Belmar there is a hotel with a bar and restaurant.

Cocoa Palms might also stock your unit - for a fee. You might ask.

as far as i know, joke's is still open. but it's not a whole lot closer than warehouse. i wouldn't hesitate to walk from coco palms to roomer (across from belmar) but as others have said, walking from town on EEG Blvd after dark is dangerous (and not a whole lot safer in the day).
