In 1988 Audrey Townsend and Scott Bertram opened Townsend Bertram & Company in Carrboro, an adventure outfitter dedicated to building community, inspiring adventure, and keeping the wild places we love wild. 30 years later TB&C is still family owned and operated and dedicated to the Carrboro community. We are ever grateful to be our community's fun, friendly, and trusted outdoor store for all ages and walks of life.
Through community outreach, TB&C gives thousands of dollars to local, environmental organizations and community minded nonprofits every year. In addition to these community partnerships, the TB&C family established a Scott Bertram Scholarship with Learning Outside in the wake of his death in the summer of 2017. As of November 2017, $7,000 has already been raised for the Scott B Scholarship. TB&C continues to support the Haw River Assembly and Friends of Bolin Creek as well among many more organizations dedicated to environmental protection and education.
We're proud to be located in the building where we first took residence 30 years ago. You can find us in the heart of Downtown Carrboro, in Historic Carr Mill. When you step through our doors you become a part of the TB&C family.
