Our Story


Meet Maggie

Founder, The Barr-ee Legend 


Maggie Cox was born in Scotland and raised in Australia. She is a long time business owner and resident of the Outer Banks. Maggie first opened Barr-ee Station in Charlottesville and later in Duck in 1988. Over the years, she's owned and operating 10 stores at one time in VA, NC and SC. Today, Maggie's focusing on her Duck storefront in the Waterfront Shops, caring for her horses, and doting on her family and friends. 

Our Store 


Barr-ee Station is named after one of Maggie's beloved dogs, a ranch visited as a child, and "barree" is also an Australian Aboriginal word for mountain.

Our beach boutique has been a Duck shopping staple for 35 years. We offer women's clothing, shoes, swimsuits and jewelry. You can also find a nice selection of men's and children's swim, clothing and shoes.  We carry top brands such as Eileen Fisher, White & Warren, THML, Hiho, Alternative Apparel and Cut Loose at perfect prices. 

Community Partnership


Maggie’s love for animals runs deep; in addition to her dogs, she shares a horse stable with her dear friend and is a champion of the Outer Banks SPCA and Humane Society


In the past, Barr-ee Station held a tent sale four times a year with proceeds going to the Outer Banks SPCA.  It became a shopping tradition for many and continues with new Boardwalk Sale she started in 2023.
