WILLIAMSBURG — Walkabout Outfitter celebrated its grand opening in Merchants Square with a ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the Greater Williamsburg Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, Dec 7.

Walkabout Outfitter, owned by husband and wife Kirk and Tina Miller, is an outdoor clothing and gear retailer. The shop’s website notes it carries high-quality, trusted brands and caters to every level of experience; from AT (Appalachian Trail) Thru hikers to casual day hikers and anyone in between, adding “from trail to tavern, we’ve been encouraging happiness since 2005.”

Williamsburg is the couple’s seventh Virginia location and has been three years in the making.

“We are so excited to be here in Williamsburg. The community has welcomed us in. We are a small family-owned business and we are passionate about not being a big chain. We care very deeply about where we are and the community we are in,” said Tina.

The ribbon-cutting was attended by Del. Amanda Batten, members of the Great Williamsburg Chamber of Commerce and Williamsburg City Council member Barbara Ramsey, who welcomed the Millers to Merchant Square.

“The city is going to fall in love with this great store,” said Ramsey. “We are thrilled to have you open in this wonderful, iconic building in Merchants Square.”

Located at 402 W Duke of Gloucester Street, Walkabout Outfitter’s grand opening celebration is happening all weekend long, with prize giveaways and free gifts with purchase while supplies last.
