About Us

Each year millions of people descend upon the sandy beaches of North Carolina’s Outer Banks in search of sun and fun. These revelers arrive from all parts of the country, and a look at their t-shirts, hats, and bumper stickers will tell you that they also represent a very diverse gathering of fans. It was within this unique setting that TAILGATERS opened its doors in the northern Outer Banks town of Corolla.

From our beginnings as a team shop with a distinctive beach flavor, TAILGATERS has evolved into a destination offering the area's largest selection of sports fashion headwear and apparel. If you're not able to visit our store in the Tim Buck II Shopping Center, then please take a minute to browse our online store. You can shop with the knowledge that, unlike most of our online competitors, TAILGATERS is an actual store. And because we are a family-owned and operated business, you can count on receiving the same superior service online and in-person.

We are grateful for the opportunity to have you as a customer. Thank you for visiting TAILGATERS.
