This is so convenient for purchasing gifts. It is a nice place to just walk around and see how each area is decorated

Far too many downtowns have substantial store fronts which are vacant. Stainton's is a prime example of how to keep residents and tourists coming downtown to shop. On every trip to Ocean City we stop for grandchildren's gifts, home decor items, local books and craft...More

While I miss the old Stainton's Department Store that occupied four floors of this building for many years, I do enjoy shopping the many different vendors located on the first floor. There is always something new and lots of "must haves" here.
