Celebrate with Stainton’s!

Celebrate with Stainton’s!

Get ready, because big things are happening in Downtown Ocean City starting on November 21st!

Put on your best PJs that day and join us on Asbury Avenue from 8AM to 12PM for Earlier Than the Bird. This annual event lets you get a jump on holiday shopping while winning hourly prizes (including one for best pajamas!).

We want all of our customers to feel comfortable shopping at Stainton’s, so we enforce strict mask wearing, encourage social distancing, offer hand sanitizer, and have plastic barriers at the register. Your safety is our top priority, but we still want to give you the best holiday experience.

Throughout the holiday season, we’ll be offering promos and demonstrations from some of our 80+ vendors as well as prizes and live music.

And make sure you join us for Wish List Wednesdays! Every Wednesday in December, we’ll offer late hours and the opportunity to make a store a wish list for loved ones to come and check out. That way, everyone gets just what they want without the guesswork!

We’ve got lots of holiday magic in store this season, so mark your calendars and make sure you stop in!

Give the Gift of Joy This Year!

Give the Gift of Joy This Year!

You can give children in need the gift of joy this Christmas by donating a toy or gift through Matt’s Stocking. This wonderful organization was born out of a family’s grief. Seeing their son’s Christmas stocking the first year after his death, they had two choices: tuck it away, or honor Matt by doing something good with it. They filled the stocking for a child in need. Years later, Matt’s Stocking has helped bring smiles to the faces of hundreds of children in our own community.

This holiday season, Stainton’s is partnering with Matt’s Stocking to help bring awareness to this worthy cause. You’ll find stockings decorated with a child’s Christmas wish at local businesses like ours throughout Cape May County. Just pick up a stocking, fulfill the wish, and bring your donation back to that location.
