The exterior leads one to believe that interesting things will be inside, when in fact there is only the usual tourist junk. They have cornered the market with t-shirts and other items with an A.S.S. logo (the abbreviation for the store name). If you need souvenirs, there are some other places on the island that have a better selection. In fact, I would wager that they all do.

We stopped at this general store and the owner went out of her way to be rude to us after spending over $40 there. On the way out, she also yelled at us for not closing the door even though we only left it open since it was open when we went in. Avoid this place and enjoy some of the other attractions on the island that actually appreciate your business.

Stay clear of Albert Styron's General Store on Ocracoke Island N.C., it is a supreme tourist trap. The store is chock-full of worthless trinkets from China and the staff was very rude. They literally yelled at us for the front door being open too long. It is a waste of time. SHK
