If you know where to look, the Outer Banks can be a beachcomber's paradise. With miles of shoreline to explore, hidden beaches that are relatively untouched, and literally piles of shells washing up on the beaches after a storm, shelling on the OBX beaches is simply a matter of timing and area expertise.
This recently opened chain discount store was welcomed by many Outer Bankers, who appreciate a good deal and quality merchandise. Located on the border of Nags Head and Kill Devil Hills, its central Outer Banks location makes T.J. Maxx a popular destination for locals and visitors looking to save a little money on a designer item. Prices range from rock-bottom to merely affordable, but the inventory is always changing, so part of the fun is unearthing surprises. Shoppers can find everything from sexy lingerie to business suits and sportswear for women, to surf wear and jeans and dress pants for men. There’s also plenty of kids’ clothes, swimwear, home décor, beauty and cosmetic items and jewelry to browse. It’s just kind of fun to come in and see what T.J. Maxx has to offer week to week.
