I have shopped at the Trading Company for years and have loved their store and merchandise. We have purchased everything from jewelry to a rug, and yes fudge, to my husbands' favorite shirt, but on our last visit I was not as impressed as on previous visits.
Our visit was during the off season (Jan) and the place was near empty. Myself and 2 others were shopping, I was purchasing a shirt, and another costly item while the others were still looking. I inquired about the fudge, and the gentleman seemed too busy to even bother. When my shopping companions joined me, we did sample and buy (almost 3 lbs.) of fudge. When I presented my Fudge card, the gentleman again seemed annoyed by our business.
Thankfully the shop still has a lot of merchandise that I like, so I will likely be back, even though I did skip it on my last visit to the island in April. Surf City has plenty of new shops to try, but I always liked Topsail Trading Co. I hope it was just a bad day for them.
