Business Updates

You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy local. And that’s kind of the same thing.”


Click here to read an open letter sent to the Cape May business community on Tuesday, May 19, 2020, from Police Chief Anthony Marino.

Cape May Retail Stores

All retail stores in Cape May are currently closed. However, many of our local merchants are offering their goods through website, self-serve, and call-in orders. Once stores are able to open again, we will update this information. In the meantime, click here to see a partial list of local retail stores offering online orders and curbside pick-up.

Cape May Rental Properties

All short-term rental properties in Cape May are closed by Executive Order until May 30, 2020. Rental agencies and individual property owners are able to take reservations for dates after that. For existing or new reservations please contact your rental agency directly for more information.

Cape May Accommodations

All hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts, and guest houses in Cape May are closed by Executive Order until June 1, 2020. This also includes any AirBnb rentals. Between June 1 and June 22, these accommodations can operate at 60% capacity. After June 22, they can operate at 100% capacity.

Cleaning Services

As business and property owners prepare for the reopening of Cape May, cleaning protocols and services will be more critical than ever. The Cape May area is serviced by many different national and local cleaning services. Before choosing one for your home, business, or rental, ask if they have a IJCSA Residential Cleaning Specialist Certification (RCS).

For all rental properties, current COVID-19 guidelines suggest the following:

  • Check-in time should be delayed by at least two hours to allow for comprehensive cleaning based on the CDC standards before a new guest arrives.
  • All pillows, blankets, comforters, and linens should be removed from a rental unit prior to guest arrival. Renters should bring these items with them to use during their stay.
  • Protective mattress covers should be used on all beds.


Many of Cape May’s breweries, wineries, and distilleries are currently open for pick-up and/or local delivery. Be sure to call ahead to place your order.
