Washington Street Mall getting ready for the season

The Washington Street Mall is dotted with ladders, caution tape, painters, and construction workers. Ah, the dulcet sounds of hammering and nail guns! It’s not exactly a pretty scene right now, but the town is going to look gorgeous this summer.

On the 500 block, across the street from us, Colors is getting a new coat of paint, and A Ca Mia is improving their exterior.


A block down, Henry’s Landmark Jewelers is receiving a complete facelift (on the backside of the building, too).


The planter benches, which have been a part of the mall since its reconstruction in 2008, are being wrapped in a stone surround for durability (they original white bases weren’t practical, as it turns out, and were pretty scuffed).


The 400 block of Carpenter’s Lane has new brick to match the mall (and its sister blocks on either side), and if you drive down Jackson, you’ll notice a smoother ride; the road has been resurfaced.


And something is going on with the sidewalk in Liberty Way.


We can’t wait for you to see all of the changes!

New Kid on the 500 Block

So if you haven’t checked it out yet, stop by the 500 block of the Washington Street Mall and take a look at Galvanic, which took over the building previous occupied by Gifts Galore. By “take over,” I mean they gutted (and ripped out the floor right down to the dirt), re-imagined the layout, brought in a ton of reclaimed wood for the walls, and repainted the exterior.

Galvanic carries what I’m calling slightly upscale men’s casual and beachwear. They also stock a line of men’s grooming products, Uppercut, from New Zealand. It’s a completely different look and feel for our mall, so stop in the next time you’re in Cape May. You can also like them on Facebook.

easter-interiorThe 2013 Easter Fashion Stroll, sponsored by the City of Cape May, the Washington Street Mall Merchants and the Chamber of Commerce of Greater Cape May,  prevailed even though light showers threatened to dampen the day mid-way through the judging.  But both the judges and the participants braved on. Mayor Edward Mahaney, Jr. presided over the event. Prizes were awarded according to age, gender and Easter attire and all donated by the Mall merchants and surrounding businesses.
