    Wings: They are everywhere!

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This chain of stores popped up on the Outer Banks a few years ago--and they are seriously like every half mile. It's your usual tourist trap store, with souveniers, bathing suits, t-shirts, jewelry. I like the local surf shops as an alternative, but sometimes you can find good deals in here. When we were down here in January, I seriously found a nice bikini for 99 cents. No joke. My niece got one for $4.00. During the summer, they raise the prices of course, so if you decide to go here, I recommend doing it in the off season.
    However, I think during this time, the way they get their employees is just by opening the door and the first people they see walking by, they ask if they want some work for the day. They were so shady! My niece made me guard the dressing room because the guy kept following us around...even when we walked out to our car...asking us where we were from, who we were visiting, if we were going out that night...

    What to buy: Like I said, the bathing suit sale was incredible when we were there! There wasn't a single one (and there are hundreds to choose from) over $10.00, normally priced around $70.00

    What to pay: In the summer, it's overpriced.
    In the winter, it's cheap

  • Island Deliveries: Grocery Delivery is the Way to Go

    by dawnchit Written May 16, 2008

    Food Lion is chaotic on Saturdays and Sundays with these two days being the check-in days. It becomes a grueling chore when you could be at the beach with your groceries in the fridge upon arrival. I would check out www.islanddeliveries.biz and have groceries delivered. It is well worth the money to avoid the store and make the most out of your vacation.
