Here at Coast Communications, we believe in supporting our local small business economy. During this pandemic, we know just how hard everything has been.. not only on a personal level, but also business wise. Beginning February 1st and ending December 2021, we will be gifting one local winner a “Coast Cares” prize valued at $50. This is our way of saying “Thank you” for the past 50+ years of local business, as well as to shine some love on this amazingly resilient community that we are proud to call home.
We want to hear about a positive experience that you have encountered at a business here locally! It can be about a restaurant, retail shop, grocery store, or any place you feel should be highlighted due to their exceptional service during these times. To enter, simply email us your positive review of a local business at email@example.com.
We will randomly select an entry each month and notify our winner via telephone. Be sure to put your name and telephone number along with your brief description of the business in the body of your email. Please note: You do not have to be a current Coast Communications customer to enter this giveaway, as we are opening this promotion to all of our local neighbors. We will select a different local business each month as our “Coast Cares” partner for the following month’s giveaway.
Thanks again for letting us serve you! We wish all of you a safe and wonderful 2021.

Dear Coast Cares,
My name is Noah and I'm a student at North Beach Middle/ SR. High School just across from your office.
My mom always tells me, I am who I am because of the examples I was given. After COVID shut down my school and everything else in the world, I was also left with no friends and one of my favorite things.. sports.
In October Beach Bum Fitness in Ocean Shores opened. They allowed me and other teens missing out on their sports year, to come work out. I met the owners, Michelle and Coach Joe the football coach. Coach Joe let me workout with him and his sons and some of the other kids from football and even dropped me off at home when my mom was working. He put in a lot of time working with the football team and made me feel like I belonged.
I wanted to thank them for working with me and including me and other kids while sports and school were out. I also want to thank them for being good role models and good examples to everyone. They were one of the only businesses around here that were supporting teens over the pandemic.
Working with them definitely made me hungrier for my goals. The football season has ended and now on to track & field. I'm in the top rankings in the Pacific League so far. I’m thankful to Joe and Michelle for such a strong foundation to set my goals on. I’m thankful that they have directed me along the way. Not only do they help with physical performance, but more importantly they were a great help mentally.
For people still searching for the light at the end of the tunnel, I hope you can find good people like those my mom and I have found at Beach Bum Fitness. If you're looking for a business who has shown an act of kindness, Beach Bum Fitness shows acts of kindness every single day, to everyone.

3/7/21: Love your Promo Event for our Ocean Shores locals. What a wonderful way for businesses to give back to the Community of Ocean Shores. Thank you!
I’d like to recognize Rich and the North Coast Medical Supply. This facility has time and time again, gone so many extra caring steps and miles to provide our
Community with equipment and supplies to the less fortunate and disabled locals who cannot afford to purchase much needed equipment for their compromised medical health issues.
Rich offers great knowledge, smiles, laughter and items that can assist people with making each customer’s medical situation a little easier for everyday living with difficult disabilities … and there are many various & numerous medical circumstances, problems and conditions that do exist!
Rich has helped my husband on numerous occasions, and will never really know to the extent of how grateful we are. Our Community is extremely blessed by his caring, gracious and thoughtful ways. He truly is this City’s “Earth Angel” …. and we can’t thank him enough for helping to make my spouse’s every day living difficulties so much easier.

3/3/21: Good Morning, I want to highlight Tijssen Designs. Rhonda and Delene have made it possible for gals and guys to stay trimmed and curled during these months of masking and social distancing. With great care, they both have kept clients and themselves safe. Rhonda and Delene are amazing sources of joy. Friendly conversation is their gift to their clients.
I highly recommend Tijssen Designs for all your coiffure needs.
2/28/21: I just want to say that I am so proud that our IGA has worked hard, during this trying past year, to keep our town’s residents happy. The cashiers always have a smile and something pleasant to say every time I go through their station to pay for my groceries. I know they are tired but they always seem to put on a positive face and demeanor and make me feel like I am special. Thank you, IGA, for enduring this storm with us and helping us see our way to brighter days!
2/28/21: Buck's Ace has been so helpful when we needed to vent our dryer. They went above and beyond.
2/26/21: Previous to joining Coast I was with another company for over 13 years. They downsized in my area and I was not able to use them anymore. So, I chose the closest internet to me, Coast Communications. I have never had better service or worked with more lovely people than Coast! Absolute truth!
Then Like a fool that I am I cancelled their service because I saw a company that was advertising a Promo for a lot less in cost. I jumped on that and It was a Very Big Mistake! Very slow and I could not get TV at all. Made a Huge mistake and immediately cancelled the other company and went back to Coast.
I love Coast Internet!!
I am a very Happy person now😊
2/24/21: There are actually four businesses I'd like to honor. Thank-FULL meals with the Hunger ActionTeam of Chapel by the Sea PCUSA have been fortunate to have four North Beach restaurants participate in preparing meals for people to enjoy safe at home. Koko's, Surfhouse Espresso, (the McElliott family) of Front Street Market and Frontager's Pizza have all done an amazing job of creating a meal to distribute, not just an item or entree each week. Awarded a Cares Act Grant from Grays Harbor County, these meals revolved around feeding the hungry and homeless from Moclips to Copalis Beach. Whether it was homemade chips and salsa or a side salad, the restaurants added their special touch to create a full meal experience. Employees were brought extra work and gratuity, restaurants revenue and people received hot meals with all knowing we are #neighborhelpingneighbors. Each of these establishments did a fantastic job of giving back to the North Beach community.
2/24/21: We want to give a shout out to the Anchor Thrift store in Ocean Shores. My wife and I love to spend time exploring the store, we usually visit at least once a week. For a second hand store of used goods it is always clean, well organized, and the staff is super friendly always, everyone that works there seems happy and focused on the customers. I especially like how they will take the time to carefully wrap delicate items in paper and cardboard before leaving the store to ensure they make it home undamaged.
Wonderful Ocean Shores business where you can find items and little treasures at very reasonable prices, especially enjoy their 50% off colored tag days throughout the week in order to get extra savings.

I don't know if the community center qualifies as a business but they have been really great with opening back up. They make it safe, convenient, and possible to get back to exercising after a year of being closed. I'm so happy to be back in the pool!
2/18/21: Kudos to Martin Bruni Liquor Store-
Kim and John Martin are wonderful people and they have a great and friendly staff.
Kim puts together wonderful cases of wines from all over the State of Washington and Oregon
for us. I have never been disappointed with their labels.
So grateful to have a local Liquor Store way out here on the coast.
2/17/21: Ace Hardware has been a a remarkable business here in Ocean Shores. They have great customer service and they always have someone available to help you find what you need.
We have lived here since 2008 and have received numerous donated items for our community garden maintenance or fundraisers over the years. Kudos to them!=
2/11/21: We frequented Alec's by the Sea each week. They were always friendly, courteous and had scrumptious food. We try to order from one of the really great restaurants here in Ocean Shores each week to help support them. We moved here a year ago and built our dream home here. We've tried for five years to get here and finally did. We love it here.

2/10/21: THE GALLERY OF OCEAN SHORES
Walking in the gallery is like going on an adventure trip! You experience everything from different countries, people, animals, landscapes to oceans, wood craftsmanship, and unique abstract pieces to expand your thinking out of the box.
You are always greeted with a smile and great enthusiasm. When entering the gallery you are first asked if it's your first time visiting and they share what is new and some history regarding the artists. They are always willing to walk with you and explain the different techniques used by the artists. Displays are arranged professionally using many different backgrounds.
With the continually new art designs and changing displays each visit is a new adventure! If you haven't been there before, make a plan to visit this week.
Their hours are Wednesdays - Sundays 10am -4:30pm
