The History of The Floaty Store™ 

Let's take you back...all the way back to 1959 when my grandfather founded a small beach shop in a little town called Wellfleet on Cape Cod. The store quickly grew in popularity each year becoming the go to destination to start and end your Cape Cod vacation. Visitors would return each year to find the next best thing for the beach and great keepsakes to take home. When my father and mother took over the shop in 1985 they wanted something unique that would set Seaberry Surf apart from the countless other shops on the Cape. My father came up with the idea of inflating pool "floatys" and attaching them to the roof. He started with just two and as customers quickly flocked in to check out the store, two turned into twenty. Soon Seaberry, or as tourist like to call it "The Floaty Store" became an instant tourist attraction on the lower Cape. This success has created a lot of copy cats, but there will only ever be one Floaty Store. OK, maybe two ;)
