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 wild. 30 years later TB&C is still family owned and operated. TB&C is dedicated to serving the Carrboro community with premium outdoor gear and the gold standard of customer service. 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, in 2017 following the death of co-founder Scott Bertram, we established the Scott B Scholarship Fund with Learning Outside.
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, a reclaimed textile mill turned into a beautiful mall. When you step through our doors you become a part of the TB&C family.
