Welcome to Village Outdoor Shop

We have moved our shop to downtown King, NC. We are in the heart of the old downtown section near King Drug.

Our new address is 109 East Dalton Road King, NC 27021 336.985.6383.

Our new storefront is a 1919 brick facade building with original, restored hardwood flooring. The deck off the back looks out over an active train track and in the distance is Cook’s Wall, part of Hanging Rock State Park- and home of the hardest climbing route in North Carolina.

We are 7 miles from Pilot Mountain State Park and 13 miles from Hanging Rock State Park climber’s access or 16 miles to the main entrance. The 25 mile Sauratown Trail which connects Pilot and Hanging Rock is 4 miles north.

We are about 1/2 mile from the original, updated Dairi-O restaurant which has recently added locations in Stanleyville, Clemmons and south Winston-Salem off of Highway 150 near the Forsyth/Davidson County line. By Foot Sports- a specialty running shop- is 3 doors down the road. Dalton’s Crossing and Hill’s Shoes are across the street.

The porch from the back of the old shop is being re-purposed: Glenna has made our register counter out of the stringers from the old tin roof. The old porch dates back about 100 years and was previously a shed on the property where Glenna grew up.

Our footwear backstock will be housed behind the tin roof and real 2×4 boards that Glenna’s dad cut for the previous project.

We invite you to check out this amazing and beautiful location next time you are on your way to any of Stokes County’s many natural resources.
