Shop local in Ocean City this weekend
Shopping in OCNJ is fun no matter the time of year. Around Thanksgiving and Christmas, it feels magical. The wreaths are hung. City Hall is decorated. It feels like a step back in time.
The reduced prices for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday also brings back memories of a time where you could get more presents with your jingle.
“We are really looking forward to all the holiday shopping events coming up. It has never been more important to shop and eat local. Our local communities have been doing a great job of supporting us though all that has gone on this past year. I know I not only speak on Stainton’s behalf but on that of the over 80 vendors we have inside these doors when I say thank you so very much! We are looking forward to seeing you all over the next few weeks and happy holidays!” said Bridget Buchanan, director of operations at Stainton’s.
