74 Years of Outer Banks Tradition
Gray's, the Lifestyle Authority of the Outer Banks
For so many who have spent their family vacations in the Outer Banks, a trip to Gray's Outer Banks Lifestyle Clothing Company
has been a quintessential part of the experience. From the moment you step into Gray's
iconic location in Kitty Hawk, you are greeted by local history and friendly faces alongside Gray's
signature coastal casual resort wear–including men's and women's apparel and great Outer Banks T-shirts, sweatshirts, gifts and souvenirs and, of course, Gray's
famed Big Duck
A Family Tradition
Established in 1948 by Walter and Stelle Gray, Gray's
began as a single store on the beach road in Nags Head, a land mark that has been beautifully transformed into Seagreen Art Gallery. Visitors to the original Gray's
may remember that the family home was located above the store and that Walter Gray had a passion for Big Band music that was often playing on the store speakers, giving shoppers a little swing in their step.
is still family owned and operated by their children Ronnie and Julie Gray, who carry on a legacy of superior customer service and traditional values. Ronnie's wife Susan is also an important part of the business. "It really was always a family operating as a business rather than a business being run by a family, explains Ronnie Gray. "When our visitors come in, they are greeted by a warm hello and a 'Welcome to Gray's
'. We try to welcome them as if they're entering our own home."
The Coastal Vibe
captures the essence of the Outer Banks lifestyle with a personal touch. The family surfing and fishing photos on the walls and fish mounts of prized catches by Larry Gray, brother to Ronnie and Julie and one of five Gray siblings, are just a few nods to the family's Outer Banks heritage. "The beach and the ocean were our front yard and playground when we were growing up", remembers Ronnie, who is still an avid surfer.
That genuine coastal lifestyle is captured in the classic casual shirts, shorts, sandals and uniquely designed Outer Banks T-shirts that have become must-haves for locals and visitors alike. Gray's
is a don't-miss for the summer season and all year round, a place that vacation memories are made going back generations. "I am really humbled by it, notes Ronnie of the many visitors who have shared the Gray's
experience alongside his family. It's hard work, but I really I enjoy it. It's in our blood."
On your next visit to the beautiful beaches of the Outer Banks, be sure to stop by one of Gray's
four locations in Kitty Hawk, Duck and Corolla. You will be greeted by friendly staff who treat you like family, and you'll take home something truly special to remind you of time well spent with people you love.
Ronnie and Julie Gray would like to share their sincerest appreciation and gratitude for their terrific staff and amazing customers.
We couldn't do it without you! Thank you for being a part of the Gray's family.
