For nearly 60 years, The Sterling House has been serving Wilmington and beyond with an unparalleled shopping experience. Leigh and her family are local “Wilmingtonians” and shopped in The Sterling House as children. The store has been in the same location since 1956 and is one of the only original stores to the Hanover Center. It has been owned by 5 families which are all local.
Leigh believes that Wilmington has a lot to offer and has drawn newcomers from all over the world. From the ocean to the river, historic district to the University of NC and the thriving film industry, there are so many options for things to do. Because of the climate, outdoor activities are very popular. The arts community has grown and offers many events at various venues around town. She said, “You will never run out of good places to eat and sample various types of cuisine.”
