Life on the Outer Banks is in a state of flux. We must take a break from dining out at restaurants and carry out from them instead. However, we can still shop! In fact, supporting local businesses becomes all the more important in times like these. Several shops and stores are offering sales for a little extra incentive. The majority of shops in the area still have the Open sign up, and they’re taking precautions recommended by the CDC, such as limiting the number of people in the shop at a time, reducing hours and cleaning (including disinfecting door handles and other shared surfaces) more frequently. Call before you go to check hours.
