New Stores Promote Next Generation of Entrepreneurs while Preserving Charm of Cape May

CAPE MAY, NJ (JUNE 8, 2017) - America’s Oldest Seaside Resort is gearing up to celebrate its newest shopping epicenter, The Shops on Perry.  This new block of high-end shopping retailers is helping cultivate new and unique businesses while preserving the charm of Cape May.  Tommy’s Folly, located in Congress Hall, offers visitors four shopping experiences in one location; a cafe, general store, boutique, and kid’s store. The quadruple threat will now have some amazing company on Perry Street.  Queen May, offers estate jewelry and fine luxury goods and is located within Congress Hall, with an entrance on Perry Street. Across the street is CASH and CLIVE, which has the latest trends and classic staples in women’s fashion and Victorious, a high-end women’s boutique with fine estate and antique jewelry and apparel.   Once a small boutique within Congress Hall, with the expansion of Tommy’s Folly, Victorious was also given the opportunity to grow in a new space.   These new stores are located on the first floor in Cape Resorts’ latest property, the Congress Place Suites, which has newly renovated, fully equipped apartment style rooms located on the second floor.

The building was recently purchased thanks to a new fund that Curtis Bashaw, the Managing Partner of Cape Resorts, established with a group of investors who own homes or businesses in Cape May.  The goal is to preserve the charm of the city, while also inspiring entrepreneurs.  Through the Cape Real Estate Opportunities fund, this is just one of several properties that were purchased and renovated.  The idea behind the CREO fund is to not just preserve these spaces, but to also fill them with merchants who have something to offer the residents and visitors of Cape May.  These new businesses that will be celebrated on Saturday are owned by Individuals of The Young Entrepreneurs of Cape May, a group that Curtis has mentored and brought into the community to cultivate the next generation of business owners in Cape May.

The public is invited to celebrate the grand opening of The Shops on Perry on Saturday, June 10th with ribbon cuttings happening between 3-4:00pm.  From 4-7, visitors can celebrate with a complimentary glass of champagne, sweet treats, and a chance to win prizes.
