Downstairs it’s a tackle shop with bait, tackle, rods and reels, gas, gear, waders, boots, snacks, rod and reel repair, custom-rod building, tide charts, t-shirts (including Salt Life and Guy Harvey) and everything else for fishermen and women. Upstairs it’s a gift shop and gallery with artwork, prints, ceramics, candles, local interest books, novelties, lighthouse figurines and many other gifts and souvenirs. New in the store are dog-related items and gifts and a line of lifestyle apparel called Wave Life. Dillon’s Corner features a full-service coffee bar serving coffee, espresso, lattes, cappuccinos, fresh-fruit smoothies and more. Free WiFi is available, and there’s an ATM.
