There aren’t many large shopping centers on the Outer Banks. For the most part, local businesses are found in the small strip centers that dot our local landscape. There’s a number of reasons for this fact. In earlier days there was a scarcity of large land parcels available for development and not a clear vision for business growth. Regardless, these strip centers add to the charm and character of the Outer Banks and have allowed for unique small shops and restaurants to thrive.
One of the smallest and most popular of those small strip centers is MP6 in Kill Devil Hills. Located on the west side of the bypass at milepost 6, this center is easy to locate by looking for its dominant green sign with white lettering.
