Catch a Wave

Three Ocean City businesses visit on your next trip down the Shore.

Ocean City businesses are a part of the shore town experience. Whether you’re an islander, vacationer, or someone taking a day trip for the sun, sand, and sea, there are always those great Ocean City businesses we love to visit—and summer with Xspero™ makes some of those businesses even greater.

From now until August 31, when you purchase a digital gift card to any of these Ocean City businesses on the Xspero™ app, 100 percent of profits go back to the business and a charity you get to choose without it costing you more. With Xspero™, you’re helping small businesses and helping a local charity in need for the same price of shopping your favorite merchants. That way, everyone wins.

Here are three Ocean City businesses on the Xspero™ app you can visit on your next trip down the Shore.
