    So basically, anywhere in Carteret County for shopping past 11 pm you have the option of Walmart and Harris Teeter. There are no CVS and Walgreens open past that time.

      And if you are in Pine Knoll Shores, Indian Beach, Salter Path, Emerald Isle, or Cape Carteret then the Walmart in Swansboro is going to be the closest.

    I feel like if someone opened a food truck and placed it at the Emerald Club in Emerald Isle between the hours of 8 pm and 3 am, along with a truck at Tacklebox in Atlantic Beach and Tipsy Turtle, and The Dockhouse in Beaufort they would make a killing off the late night crowd especially in the busy Summer months.

    As a former Uber driver I can’t tell you how many calls from tourist I got to take them to a restaurant between the hours of 11 pm and 3 am. Seems like there is a big business opportunity there.
