Posts Tagged ‘Main Avenue businesses in Ocean GRove’

It was a warm and pleasant Thursday mid-afternoon on Main Avenue in Ocean Grove. We try to pay attention to the lineup of businesses in the Grove.  Parking was tight, but, strangely as the Christmas shopping season begins, not everything was open.

The All Star bagel shop had closed at 2 pm. The Dapper Dog Spa  grooming shop was closed; by appointment only.  The New Dawn Hair Company was closed. This is a new hair salon.

Susan stays open in Cheese on Main. This is not a comprehensive list of businesses.


Cottage Home Interiors, a marvelous shop, has just opened at 49 Main Ave. All photos by Paul Goldfinger of Blogfinger.net.  Nov. 5, 2020. © Click all photos to enlarge.


This was a wonderful surprise.  Susan and Brian Schulte had closed their Favorite Things store and opened this lovely venue for home interiors.  They are very happy in their new location, and it is definitely worth a visit since Susan is known for her impeccable taste.  This shop raises all boats on Main.  Their current hours are M-W-Fri- (11-5) and Sat. (10-5).  They even have a bench outside for the comfort of visitors.


Balzac and Co. Yarn Shop remains the most colorful shop in town.  Click to enlarge.


The Emporium beach shop adjacent to Comfort Zone.

Steve and Victor operate two of the classiest shops in town. The Emporium, Jr. beach shop has the best selection of high quality Ocean Grove clothing.  During the Labor Day holiday, while walking on the boards,  I only saw one OG T shirt. Where’s the town pride?  And the Comfort Zone has wonderful skin creams, soaps, fragrances, etc, plus there is a book shop.
