Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce invites you to redefine your holiday gift giving by visiting independent, local businesses that offer extended hours and services this season

Making the Holidays merry and bright is also about supporting local businesses and giving unique gifts that value the community. Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce is rolling out their new program to help consumers locate shops and restaurants that are typically seasonal who have extended their hours for holiday shopping, services and dining. The program will have updated blogs and social postings featuring participating members who are open, as well as in store specials and holiday happenings beginning Shop Small Saturday November 25 throughout the holiday shopping season.

Check out our list of local retailers who are open for gift giving or special services like gift wrapping, workshops or gift certificates; as well as restaurants providing dining, gift certificates and catering. The Holidays Shopping Redefined program will feature a Holiday Experience card for consumers to pick up at participating locations or Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center at 265 W Ninth Street, Ship Bottom NJ.

Consumers can stop into any five of the listed restaurants and any 5 of the listed retailers to get card validated. Then they can return completed card to the Southern Ocean Chamber office for entry into a raffle to win our limited Chowderfest Stocking Gift pack with mug, vintage Tee and Gift Certificate for 2018 30th Anniversary Chowderfest. A perfect addition to anyone’s wish list. The program will run from November 25 to Dec 15 2017 and the winner will be randomly selected on Monday Dec 18, 2017. No purchases are necessary.
