Forgot your beach gear? Onslow Beach Marine Mart now open Cpl. Jackeline Perez Rivera

Patrons can buy beach gear, fishing equipment, barbecue essentials, foods, snacks and magazines for their beach adventure at the Onslow Beach Marine Mart aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. The facility held a ribbon cutting June 4.

CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. - Beach-goers at Onslow Beach aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune have a place to do their beach shopping this summer at a new seaside convenience store.

The Onslow Beach Marine Mart held a ribbon cutting to commemorate the opening of their facility, June 4.

Onslow Beach is a great family and pet-friendly place to relax without having to drive far, said Sgt. Nathan Rogers, the manager of the Onslow Beach Marine Mart.

Having the store near the shore means patrons can buy beach gear, fishing equipment, barbecue essentials, snacks and magazines for their beach trip. Beach regulations prohibit glass, so only drinks bottled in plastic containers are sold at the facility.

Customers can also acquire a 10-day or annual fishing license at the facility.

The new facility has been open several weeks, a common occurrence for Marine Marts before a ribbon cutting to ensure items are stocked and a baseline is established within the store, said Rogers. It has already seen thousands of beach-goers, averaging 500 to 700 patrons on the weekends.

Onslow Beach Marine Mart is open Monday to Thursday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday to Sunday 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

For more information call 440-7230.
