We are your Holiday Shopping destination!

The Holiday Season in Johnston County offers visitors so many sights and sounds of Christmas -- the most magical time of the year.

Coach bag display at the Coach Outlet at Carolina Premium Outlet, Smithfield, NC.Save like a local this Christmas! We invite you to visit and enjoy music, light shows, parades and of course, outlet shopping for that special gift for your special someone!

This holiday shopping season, start early and get great deals at Carolina Premium Outlets. With Black Friday deals and specials at stores like Coach Outlet, Polo Ralph Lauren, Brooks Brothers, Nike, and Kate Spade Outlet, you're sure to find something for everyone on your list. Plus, while you're in Selma, be sure to check out DeWayne's and Carolina Apparel Outlet for even more great deals.

Visit downtown for even more holiday spirit

Our unique downtowns in the county offer holiday shopping at boutiques, vintage and variety shops, jewelry stores, and much more. And they are all decked out for the season like Hallmark towns to welcome you to shop, dine, and explore! In this very hectic season, we invite you downtown to slow down and enjoy a coffee, a sweet treat (you deserve it!), or a holiday themed event! We love a parade in Johnston County!

Food, local products, and art are great gifts

Make sure to shop local this holiday season for both gifts and ingredients for your holiday meals. You can find recipes for seasonal dishes featuring local ingredients like Atkinson Mill and Steven's Country Ham on our website. We even put together a planned Holiday meal guide for traditional southern favorites for Christmas - just like our grandmas taught us!

JoCo also offers local artist's works that make great presents. Search for the unique, one-of-a-kind gifts like custom furniture, pottery, locally made candles, and even goat soap. Whether you're gifting a statement piece or looking a stocking stuffer...shop local for every person on your list! You won't find these gifts in your big box stores!

Above all else we wish you and your family a merry holiday season!
