Supermarket
“Upscale grocery store. Buy your essentials then stop by the deli area for made to order Sub sandwiches. Each week there is a special sub offered at a discount price. Great to have ready to take for a picnic at the beach, Bear Island or Shackleford Banks. There you may also buy freshly prepared hot entrees and veggies to take back to the cottage if you do not want to cook dinner. ”
