Charles Hickman and wife Caroline and moved to Lake Waccamaw in 2000 and fairly soon figured out that the closest place to buy bait, tackle or boating supplies was at least fifteen miles away. So, in 2003 with absolutely no idea about how to operate a business, a few thousand dollars, a very helpful and knowledgeable salesman from Big Rock Sports and a lot of determination, Waccamaw Outdoor Supply opened its doors.
Since our meager beginnings, the business has grown tremendously and now is housed in a 7500 square foot facility located at 104 Top Tobacco Road in Lake Waccamaw, NC. It is home to both Waccamaw Outdoors, Inc. and Waccamaw Speedy Mart, Inc. and is easily accessed from I-74 (future) Highway 74-76 between mile marker 252 and 253.
The outdoor store inventory includes over 150 handguns and 200 long guns and the shelves are loaded with plenty of ammo and accessories. The boating and fishing tackle inventory consists of the items used by locals in Lake Waccamaw and the surrounding rivers as well as salt water tackle and gear. Whether you want to catch fresh water or saltwater fish, we can show you what you need to make it happen. Our service department is trained and qualified to handle almost any repair required for your firearms. The store is decorated with taxidermy displays, old guns and many other items that pertain to outdoor life. The numerous mounts all through the store are on loan from customers, many of whom have run out of room at home for any more mounts. Animals are added and taken out regularly so don�t forget to check out the walls on each visit. You never know what might show up.
Waccamaw Speedy Mart in association with Sunoco is one of the few convenience stores visible from Interstate 74 (future) highway 74-76 between Delco and Rockingham. The Speedy Mart offers all the typical convenience store items and has a grill that opens at 5AM and offers breakfast and lunch 7 days a week. Of course, gasoline and highway diesel is available with easy access from all directions and Sunoco is the Official Fuel of NASCAR.
