Henry's, which goes by the tagline "Ocean City's Landmark Jeweler", has been open at their 12th Street store for 48 years, selling a variety of jewelry and beach and athletic wear, sweatshirts and t-shirts.

The 9th Street location of Henry's was a comparatively new venture in a prime spot on the Boardwalk. There is a third Henry's Landmark Jeweler on Washington Street in Cape May.

As the company's website relates, Henry's opened in 1972, owned by friends Jeff Sherman and Sam Koperwas, both of whom loved Ocean City and originally looked at the store as a reason to spend time in the city.

In nearly 50 years in business, they developed a reputation as one of the nicest shops on the Ocean City Boardwalk, with a special focus on making women happy...
