73 Years of Outer Banks Tradition
Grayâs, the Lifestyle Authority of the Outer Banks
For so many who have spent their family vacations in the Outer Banks, a trip to Grayâs Outer Banks Lifestyle Clothing Company has been a quintessential part of the experience. From the moment you step into Grayâs iconic location in Kitty Hawk, you are greeted by local history and friendly faces alongside Grayâs signature coastal casual resort wearâincluding menâs and womenâs apparel and great Outer Banks T-shirts, sweatshirts, gifts and souvenirs and, of course, Grayâs famed Big Duck designs.
A Family Tradition
Established in 1948 by Walter and Stelle Gray, Grayâs 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 Grayâs 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.
Modern-day Grayâs 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. Ronnieâs wife Susan is also an important part of the business. âIt really was always a family operating as a business rather than a business being run by a family,â explains Ronnie Gray. âWhen our visitors come in, they are greeted by a warm hello and a âWelcome to Grayâs.â We try to welcome them as if theyâre entering our own homeâ
The Coastal Vibe
Grayâs 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 familyâs Outer Banks heritage. âThe beach and the ocean were our front yard and playground when we were growing up,â 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. Grayâs is a donât-miss for the summer season and all year round, a place that vacation memories are made going back generations. âI am really humbled by it,â notes Ronnie of the many visitors who have shared the Grayâs experience alongside his family. âItâs hard work, but I really I enjoy it. Itâs in our blood.â
On your next visit to the beautiful beaches of the Outer Banks, be sure to stop by one of Grayâs four locations in Kitty Hawk, Duck and Corolla. You will be greeted by friendly staff who treat you like family, and youâll 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 couldnât do it without you! Thank you for being a part of the Grayâs family.
