Our Story


Meet Maggie



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 and "barree" is also an Australian Aboriginal word for mountain.

Our beach boutique has been a Duck shopping staple for 32 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 stable of seven horses with her dear friend and is a champion of the Outer Banks SPCA


Barr-ee Station holds a tent sale four times a year - Easter weekend, Memorial Day, Labor Day and Thanksgiving.  A portion of the proceeds go to the Outer Banks SPCA.  


Make an effort to come out, say hello, and walk away with great finds for great prices. It's become a shopping tradition for many
