MarineMax store in Jersey plans post-Sandy reopening

MarineMax Somers Point in New Jersey will host a grand reopening event on May 30.

After months of extensive remodeling to recover from Hurricane Sandy in October 2012, MarineMax Somers Point in New Jersey will host a grand reopening event on May 30.

The public is invited to attend and celebrate with store employees.

“We are so excited to have this grand reopening,” store manager John Polhemus said in a statement. “The MarineMax Somers Point store has never looked better. The updated, modern feel of the new showroom is fantastic. We will have catered food, beer and wine for our guests. We really want to show off our new look.”

Along with modernizing the showroom, MarineMax installed a new lounge area. There will be a live broadcast on radio station WMGM (103.7) during the event. On May 31, the store will conduct a demo day.

“We’ll have special drawings for giveaways,” Polhemus said. “It will be a relaxed, fun day to see what is new for 2015 and getting to know other boaters while sharing adventures from the past and learning about upcoming MarineMax-hosted getaways!”
