I visited Chip's around 8/16/11 while vacation at the Outer Banks, NC.
The store was easy to find in the Mile Post 6 shopping center on the east side of the highway. Inside there was primarily 2 rows of shelves and a couple cools that held beer. There was nothing here that was exceptionally good or difficult to find, but the selection of local beers were very good. There was some Eastern Carolina stuff like Mother Earth and Weeping Radish as well as a good variety from Bells, Ska, Founders, DFH. Not much in terms of Belgians, but the locals were well represented. The cashier was very friendly asking if we needed help and chatting with me as we checked out. There was a pretty good selection of glassware, but nothing that blew my mind.
Overall, I think that this is a very nice place to have in your back pocket way out from civilization at the beach, there are probably 50 stores within 30 minutes drive of Philadelphia that have similar selections. In fact, almost every Total Wine I've ever stepped into in DE, NJ, and NC has the beer repertoire and price of Chip's. That said, the most important thing in beer stores is location, location, location and there ain't no other game within 50 miles.

Chip's in KDH is a must for any BA's in the OBX. The staff is friendly, engaging, and knowledgable. The selection is as good as any you will find in the area. Plus, they have a good selection of cold beer in the cooler to your right as you're walking into the store. Since they added the bar area, I have enjoyed sipping on a beer (or two) as I shop. Chip's also has a decent selection of glassware.

Visited on a Saturday early afternoon in August as we arrived for a week in OBX.
A - Typically wine/beer store atmosphere, except for the rocking tunes. Need to try the attached wine/beer bar. I love the thought of browsing for my purchases while also drinking a high caliber beer.
Q - Many beers are available chilled. No complaints.
S - Service was excellent. Now they were not crowded, but the staff was quick to ask if I needed help. Provided excellent assistance when I did ask (about a Meritage for my wife) and we had a short converstation about the Doobie Brothers and how they were underrated as a guitar band.
S - Good selection for the OBX, but not mind blowing for some of us who might be from certain parts of the country or otherwise have a top notch store close to home. That said, there were still beers on the shelf that I had not had and there were sixes of my favorites.
