Since 1988 we have been providing the area's highest quality gear, apparel, and footwear for all of your adventuring needs!  Our friendly, gear-savvy staff is eager to have great conversations and share product information to make your travels and everyday pursuits more enjoyable. 

We're the kind of shop that has what you didn't know you needed and hopefully what you can't find at the big box stores.  We pride ourselves on having the best outdoor gear, both casual and technical, for any adventure you find yourself on.  From world travel and hiking local trails, to a Saturday night out enjoying your favorite micro-brews, we have you covered. 

Here at Townsend Bertram & Company we are proud to provide you with access to products that are made using Fair Trade practices and environmentally conscious construction/disposal methods, from companies with socially responsible mindsets. We do the research so that you don't have to. You can shop here without worrying about the ethics behind the gear you're buying!

We're proud to be located in the building where we first took residence over 25 years ago. You can find us in the heart of Downtown Carrboro, in Historic Carr Mill. When you step through our doors you will be welcomed into the TB&C family. We will do our best to ensure that you leave with a smile on your face and the perfect gear for your next adventure!
