Supply is a small unincorporated community in Brunswick County, North Carolina, USA located around the intersection of US 17 (Ocean Highway) and NC 211(Southport-Supply Road/Green Swamp Road). Its name is derived from the hardware stores and other supply shops found within the community.
Residents of the nearby beach communities of Holden Beach, Oak Island, Ocean Isle, Caswell Beach, and Sunset Beach often used to commute to Supply for goods and other materials. This practice is still common, but development in the town of Southport and in the Intracoastal Waterway commercial districts has made traveling to Supply unnecessary.
Supply is located midway between the town of Bolivia, the county seat of Brunswick County, and the city of Shallotte, and is just south of the Green Swamp. It is also home to Brunswick Medical Center.
Now seeing overwhelming growth in both commercial & residential areas Supply is now seen as the town on the uprise in Brunswick County. In the near future a new hospital is to built along with various other buildings including two major subdivisions.
