Hatteras Shopping

While watersports in all their various forms might be the main recreational activities that draw people to this island, the popularity of Hatteras Island shopping plays an important role in drawing people to the towns sprinkled through the island. There are wonderful stores that dot the long and winding road through Hatteras, and you’ll be pleased with the quality and variety of opportunities.

Hatteras shopping gives you a true taste of the local life on the island – the shops are all owned by residents, which allows for distinctive personality and character within all of them. And they stand out even more under the management of friendly staff members who are always ready to help you find whatever you’re looking for – if they don't have it at the current Hatteras shop, they can point you in the direction of someone who does. Of course, you can expect to find the basic necessities during your Hatteras Island shopping spree, be that a get-well card, a good book for the beach, a latch for the screen door or backing for your fly line. One large chain grocery store, a couple of smaller but well-stocked mom-and-pop grocers and several gourmet shops fill the food needs on Hatteras Island. You’ll find tackle stores in every village, and watersports equipment shops are everywhere.
