    If you Could Bring Back One Business...

    If you could bring one restaurant, store, bar, or any other business back to Ocean City, what would it be? I have four odd ones that I used to love gong to.



    1. The Original Fractured Prune - You could buy bait and donuts in the same place!!

    2. Sunny Carribee - This was a spice shop in the 45th Street village.

    3. There was a nautical souvenir shop in the 45th Street Village as well. I don't remember the name of the place, but they had awesome nautical themed decorations, etc.

    4. Lastly, this isn't really a business, but I used to love the food court at the mall on 94th Street. I used to love being able to enjoy some pizza and play Keno there.

    It hasn't been gone long, but I'm going to add Davey Jones Locker to this list. They were there for a good four years. They always had good service, good prices, and a great atmosphere.

    I don't like to slam OC businesses, but the place that took over in 2013 left a lot to be desired.

    Bring back.....

    When I was a kid, we stayed at Misty Harbor on 22nd or 23rd? and across Costal Hwy was a penny candy store. It had to be early 1980s. I don't remember the name but it was a great place to spend a few cents and get candy.

    I know the place that you mean, it was on 25th Street. I loved that place too. When it was open, every trip to the beach we would stop for wine, cheese, and beer, and our daughter would get $1 worth of penny candy and thought that she hit the jackpot. After the old couple who ran it retired and sold it, a younger couple from Baltimore bought it, and sometime it wouldn't be open yet when we got into town. Eventually it was torn down to expand the business on Coastal Highway.

    I remember Bernie's. It was open until at least the early 1980s. It pre-dated Sunsations, and had lots of beach stuff. My family bought plenty of chairs, rafts, umbrellas, and similar there while I was growing up. The building with its big framed windows is still there, and I always am reminded of Bernie's when I walk past it.

    Ocean Playland Amusement Park down around 65th street. Lots of great times there as a kid.

    I would go with, in this order, Cloudbreak, the Tubby's across the street from it, the concrete water slides, Chat St, Shanty Town

    I'm really going to miss the Christmas Store on Coastal. I always stopped and bought an ornament every year.
