Ghoulish Things, an expansion of Trimper’s Haunted House, is now open at 720 S Atlantic Ave. on Ocean City’s historic Boardwalk. The gift shop offers unique Trimper’s Haunted House merchandise. Artifacts of dark ride industrialist Bill Tracy are also on display.

200 94th St

Roses Discount Store, located at 200 94th St. in Ocean City, is permanently closed as of May 11 and is slated for demolition. Roses Discount Store has been serving the Ocean City community for almost 45 years. The store was known for offering a range of discounted items including food, clothing, cleaning products, beach gear and much more.

The recent closure comes after the Ocean City Planning Commission met March 5 to discuss preliminary plans to divide the 17-acre shopping center into four separate parcels for future redevelopment.

The property, known as the Ocean Plaza Mall, is home to the former Roses Discount Store and its three adjacent businesses: ACME Supermarket, Blue Fish Restaurant and Coffee Beanery. According to the March 5 meeting, the first step will be to demolish the Roses Discount Store, with a brand new ACME supermarket built in its place.
