Ribbon cutting

Rockport-Fulton Chamber of Commerce Bay Blazers recently hosted a ribbon cutting for Goin’ Coastal Outfitters.

Located at 103 S. Austin St., Goin’ Coastal Outfitters is owned by Sharon Miller and her daughters, Abigail and Hannah, whom dreamed of starting a T-shirt shop in town for years.

In early 2017, they began with a few designs and set up at a local Market Days event and began their t-shirt selling journey. They were well on their way and started looking for a retail location when Hurricane Harvey made landfall, putting their dreams on hold. However, in a turn of events and support from friends and their screen printer, the girls made a “Texas Forever - Rockport Strong” t-shirt.

What started as 100 free shirts from their screen printer turned into selling thousands of these shirts as people began to rebuild their homes that were taken in Hurricane Harvey.

In March 2019, the girls moved into their new building at 103 S. Austin Street and worked to create new designs every two weeks with Abigail as the shops’ primary creator. They’re not just a family-owned business, but fifth generation Rockport-ians.

“We’re creating quality T-shirts at the best price we’re able,” shared Sharon Miller.

Goin’ Coastal also offers an assortment of Blue Bell Ice Cream, snow cones, and drinks at the back of the shop.

Hours of operation are Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Sunday, 12 - 4 p.m.
