We are returning to the OBX for the first time in over 20 years. We used to live there, and I know a lot will have changed. One thing I do not expect to have changed is the Saturday traffic and the crowded grocery stores. I used to work at the S&R supermarket, and Saturdays in the summertime were just a madhouse.
So as we head for our week's vacation in late June, I thought -- Why not stop and shop on the way? We'll have some time to kill before we can check into our cottage in KDH.
Is there a large grocery store immediately adjacent to the snazzy new toll road from the Norfolk area? Prices are not a major consideration. Just need something where we can buy a week's worth of groceries, a couple of cheap-o coolers, and some ice to melt while we sit in traffic.
