EJW Outdoors is a Morehead City staple that was first opened as a bike shop, then expanded to a full-service hunting and fishing store. Since 1946, EJW has taken a great deal of pride in their depth of knowledge and expertise that encompasses the outdoor lifestyle. EJW is a local, family business through and through.
Known simply as The Bike Shop to locals when they opened their doors in 1946, EJW first kicked off their transformation when they added fishing tackle to their offerings. Now inside its doors customers can find top-of-the-line gear for all types of outdoor excursions, and bona fide experts to help them with their selections–while trading fishing and hunting stories in the process.
Still bearing the initials of current owner Dave Willis’ great-grandfather, Elijah James Willis, the traditions at EJW run deep, just like their connection to the community. When you walk in, it’s easy to feel the spirit of warmth and familiarity. You might even think they know you…even if it’s your first visit!
