– Wildwoods, NJ retail businesses can now welcome shoppers into their stores for browsing and purchases.
Retail businesses in the Downtown, along the Boardwalk and throughout the Wildwoods will be allowed to welcome patrons into their shops at 50% capacity starting Monday, June 15. Shoppers are free to browse and make purchases; masks are required for both shoppers and employees and proper distancing is strongly encouraged.
“We are excited to see our retail businesses throughout the island open their doors to our visitors and residents,” said Greater Wildwoods Tourism Improvement and Development Authority (GWTIDA) Executive Director/CFO John Siciliano.

Retail shops in the Wildwoods are plentiful and unique, and include: surf shops for everything you need to enjoy the beach and ocean; sweet shops for that must-have salt water taffy and fudge; t-shirt shops for a unique or kitschy shirt or Wildwoods souvenir sweatshirt; souvenir shops where you can find take-home tchotchkes and memorabilia to remember your Wildwoods visit; shoe stores, men’s and women’s sportswear, beachwear and apparel, jewelry and so much more.
GWTIDA is working collectively with the island’s municipalities, the Greater Wildwood Hotel and Motel Association (GWHMA), the Wildwood Business Improvement District (WBID), the Wildwood Special Improvement District (WSID), and the Greater Wildwood Chamber of Commerce to encourage them to implement initiatives among the destination’s businesses and attractions to enhance the safety of employees and guests as the Wildwoods gradually re-open. These include increased intensive sanitizing protocols, social distancing procedures and expanded restaurant seating onto the sidewalks and parking lots allowing for social distancing while dining. And, of course, our wide spacious beaches allow plenty of room to stretch out and practice social distancing.
