James & Susan have injected new life not only into the store but also into "downtown" Ocracoke. What a delight to see so many smiling faces as people purchased eggs, milk, fresh produce, canned goods, cereal, ice cream, beer, and wine.
And, as in the past, natives and visitors alike stopped to sit in the rockers or on the bench on the porch. Before long I expect to see old men chatting and carving birds again.
Stop in and support the re-vitalized Community Store. It truly is a community store!
