Our Roanoke Island shopping directory includes stores in both Manteo and Wanchese. OBX Advisor’s directory offers information for all four Manteo shopping centers listed as you would enter Manteo from US 264. (We define a shopping center as at least 3 retail stores that share parking and are oriented for general consumers). While there are only four “official” shopping centers, all of downtown Manteo should be considered. It’s very quaint and easy to wander. Our individual Manteo shopping guide includes 40 retail stores grouped by category to help you find what you want.
OBX Advisor has created categories of shopping to assist you to locate a particular type of store. Each store provides TripAdvisor & Yelp link reviews as well as a Google map link to help you locate it. Please note: Grocery Stores, Seafood Markets, Produce Stands are provided in our Food section.
