Shopping in Oriental/Pamlico County, NC

Oriental and Pamlico County

Known as North Carolina's sailing capitol, it should come as no surprise that many of Oriental's interesting, individually owned shops can be found along the village's waterfront. Residents say, for the best experience, park the car and explore the area on foot. Art galleries, boutiques, boating and sailing outfitters, antiques stores and groceries are not far apart and the atmosphere makes strolling delightful. Most any boat supply required can be found in Oriental from the big stuff such as sails and engines to the little stuff such as latches and life preservers. Visiting boaters can easily restock supplies in Oriental. Some of the neighboring communities in Pamlico County offer shops and stores that are fun to seek out. Otherwise, Oriental residents travel to nearby New Bern for bigger shopping trips.

If a day of shopping wears the shopper out, a visit to one of the day spas listed in our Salons and Day Spas section makes a great change.

Our Green pages section point out locations for recycled goods, consignment stores and thrift shops as well as a variety of eco-friendly services and products.
