The Outer Banks welcomes Island Shoppers

One of the best aspects of the off-season vacation for serious shoppers is scooping up those fall, winter and spring deals that are in abundance in local stores. Get ready for deep discounts as local souvenir shops and boutiques slash the prices on their existing inventory to make room for 2009 products.

The pinnacle of this shopper’s delight is Tanger Outlets in Nags Head’s midnight sale, which takes place hours after Thanksgiving dinner, at midnight, and continues all day Friday until closing time. During the Thanksgiving sale weekend, brand name outlet stores, like Coach, Eddie Bauer and Gap, offer huge sales on already discounted prices.

On the island, there are a number of stores, like Kitty Hawk Kites, which offers seasonal discounts on their merchandise. This makes island shopping an easy and fun way to brush up on your Christmas shopping, giving your holiday gifts a little bit of island style.

Sometimes, equipment rental companies, like Ocean Atlantic Rentals, offer great bargains on sports equipment that was used during the 2008 rental season. If you’re in search of a kayak, surfboard, or bicycle that’s slightly used, then this is a great place to start shopping. Don’t let the “used” label fool you – all of this equipment is in great shape and ready to ride, having only been used sporadically for a season or two.

For seasonal shoppers looking for the perfect island inspired holiday gift, a number of shops up and down the Outer Banks feature beach-themed ornaments, Cape Hatteras Christmas cards, island calendars, and all those little must-have items to celebrate the holidays, ring in the New Year, and still maintain a close connection to the Outer Banks.

During your off-season vacation, why not get a jump start on your holiday shopping, or simply take advantage of the great bargains that are in abundance in most every store. On Hatteras Island, it’s clear that the off-season is an island shopper’s paradise.
