Hey, what happened to the docksider? The kids were
devastated that their favorite place was closed. We've been coming there for twelve years and LOVE
Topsail Island. Also what happened to Ken of Ken's
Creations? That was MY favorite store. Year before
last he wasn't feeling well when we were there.
Thanks for any info!

I don't know, but we were devastated also. There was a foreclosure sign in front of it when we stopped by. We've been going to Topsail for over 30 years, since I was a toddler. Docksider was my favorite store, and we just loved the salt water taffy there. My daughter loved the mining for seashells. It's so sad, feels like a part of Topsail has died. Hope those ridiculous Wings & Eagle stores didn't drive them out of business.

We were just there and asked a local woman who told us the owner of the Docksider retired. Apparently he wanted to turn the shop over to his children but they weren't interested in taking over. We were told he tried to sell the shop for about a year with no takers and finally went into foreclosure. :-(

We just drove past tonight to find that the Docksider was closed :( I ranted and raved to all my friends back home about how awesome the fudge was...I even promised to bring some back...It is a tradition every year to stop there and am very sad we can no longer do so...Best Wishes to the previous owners...we will really miss that place!!

Ill be visiting topsail in about a week for the first time in 20 years. I'm sure things have changed drastically! I can't wait. What are some good stores, restaurants? Any good places to buy fresh seafood?
