Newest addition to Maryland’s surf scene – Ron Jon’s

As many may have heard, Ocean City has a new addition to its family of surf shops.  Ocean City is quickly becoming one of the best known surf destinations on the east coast and with Ron Jon Surf Shop eying Ocean City it turns that opinion into a fact!




            COCOA BEACH, Fla. —  (January 15, 2013) — Ron Jon Surf Shop will open its 11th location in Ocean City, Maryland in May 2013.  The 6,500 square-foot location will be situated in a new shopping and dining area two blocks from the beach in Ocean City at the 67th Street Town Center.

Ron Jon Surf Shop currently operates stores throughout Florida and in other locations along the eastern seaboard including two in Myrtle Beach and its original location in Ship Bottom, N.J.

According to Debbie Harvey, president and COO of Ron Jon Surf Shop, the company selected Ocean City for its new location because the area is a popular summer destination with great surf and visitors who are familiar with the Ron Jon Surf Shop brand.

“We are thrilled to expand our brand to the Ocean City area,” Harvey said.  “The area has long been a popular destination for East Coast residents seeking a beach getaway and we feel that a Ron Jon store will be well received by visitors.”
