Started in the 1940s by Gordon D. Reddick Jr., Redix has been through many changes since its beginning as The Big Gun Surplus. Growing to over 26 stores in the 1960s, Big Gun Surplus eventually was renamed Redix Better Life Stores to reflect the change in the merchandise. Instead of Army Surplus goods, Redix was now selling clothing, groceries, hardware, and other general store items. At one point one of the Redix stores was the largest store in NC with 90,000 square feet at the Charlotte location.

In the mid 1960s, Gordon D. Reddick, Jr. became ill and died. His wife was left with 4 children and a large business to run. Her eldest son, Gordon Decatur "Dee" Reddick 3rd, took a year off from college and came home to help her with the business. He went back the following year and graduated from the Citadel in Charleston, SC. After graduating, Dee and his mother decided to liquidate all but one Redix on Wrightsville Beach, NC. The Wrightsville Beach Redix store opened in 1969 and since then, Redix has been Wrightsville Beach's one stop shop.  Now with an addtitional location in beautiful Downtown Wilmington, NC.

Why Trust Verified Reviews?

Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.

Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.

As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:

Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.

Unverified reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.

So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
