NJ Plastic Bag Prohibition- Know Before You Come

In case you were not aware, as of May 2022, plastic bags have been banned for distribution across the State of New Jersey. 

We mention this, so you are not surprised when shopping around our town. To prepare for your Ocean City, NJ vacation, one thing you can do is pack a reusable bag to bring with you to the store. However, if you choose not to, or forget, don’t worry! Most of the stores across the State (and island) are selling reusable bags at checkout for you to take advantage of.
