Don’t even think about hitting the sand without making a stop for your beach day essentials at The Beach Store.
Located on the edge of the A1A and Sadler Rd. roundabout, The Beach Store is perfectly located for your convenience. Forgot your sunscreen? Need to rent an umbrella and chairs? How about a paddleboard? If it has to do with beach fun, they probably have it covered at The Beach Store.
Dean Root, the current owner of The Beach Store, purchased the store in 2011 and thinks it’s unlike anywhere else on A1A.
“The location is what really sets us apart from the other shops in the area,” says Dean. “We also offer a little bit of everything, which certainly helps. It’s the perfect mix of beach store and convenience store.”
Beach Rentals and More, the rental service located inside The Beach Store, rents out chairs, umbrellas, bikes and boards to take your beach day to the next level. If you’re really looking for the executive treatment, the staff at The Beach Store has resort style umbrellas and chairs available as well.
“If you rent the resort style umbrellas and chairs, we go over to the beach and set it up for you,” says Dean. “They come with a footrest, so you can kick your feet up and relax.”
With tons of beach shops and stores on Amelia Island, Dean has a theory as to why The Beach Store has remained a favorite for locals and tourists.
“As long as you’re doing good work, everything else will take care of itself,” says Dean. “We care about our customers and the community.”
