* Business license Statistics provided by the Town of Ocean City, figures were compiled (way back in) January 2002, as reported in the "Ocean City's VOICE for Business," a publication of the Ocean City Maryland Chamber of Commerce, Inc. The figures above only reflect businesses licensed and/or located within Ocean City municipal limits. Just think what the totals are if one adds the businesses outside of the City limits!
