We visit Lavallette every year! Visiting Bens is a MUST!!! They have everything. They even have Yankee Candles now.
We bought a bike from them last year and they delivered it to our shore house for free. What a great store!

Ben Franklin's starting to go down hill. I really used to love this place, because they had a lot of art and beading supplies... but lately I haven't noticed anything like that in the store.
They do have a lot of junk though.
It is very cluttered and messy in the store, but it's never crowded so it's a-o.k. Prices are reasonable.

Place to go on a rainy day or when something breaks in the shore house. This place has everything from household needs to cards and gifts. Items can be pricey but you are at the shore!

Being from Canada I had no idea what Ben Franklin was all about, and my wife said there used to be Ben Franklin stores all around where she grew up; however; they have all seem to have gone out of business. This past summer when we went to the shore, she pointed out a Ben Franklin to me and I was curious to see what the hype was all about.

Ben Franklin in Lavalette, NJ reminds me of what an old general store must have been like in the old, old days. Everything under the sun was sold at this place--beach umbrellas, cooking ware, greeting cards, toys, sports equipment, camping paraphernalia--you name it, they must have been carrying it. Because there was so much stuff, all the aisles were cluttered which made moving around a bit hard. However, the prices were good and reasonable.

The store is really two stores connected to make one enormous place. It has that small town charm, very relaxed and laid back. I can see why people frequent this place just to pick up necessities. It's very convenient.

I can see why my wife likes this store. This is what Walgreens is now, and Ben Franklin seems to have been moved aside for the big chain stores. It's a real shame, and I would like to see something like this back where we live.

PROS: Nice, big store
CONS: Really cluttered
