HAMPTON BEACH — The Beach View Inn (www.beachviewinn.com), Hampton's leading family destination, recently announced the opening of their new store, the Beach View Market. Located on the first floor of the hotel at 101 Ocean Blvd., the market is now selling convenience items as well as grocery staples, beach supplies, and is the only store in Hampton to be blending f'real frozen beverages.

F'real uses a revolutionary "right-in-the-serving-cup" blending technology.

Using the f'real blending system, individuals will be able to create cooling real fruit smoothies, classic milkshakes made from real ice cream and gourmet frozen coffees on the fly.

Following months of renovation and tens of thousands of dollars, the store is now open. One of the many changes that visitors will see is a new Ocean Boulevard entrance in addition to the entrance on I Street and completely new furnishings, including display shelves, counters and more.

Hampton Beach visitors and Beach View Inn hotel guests will enjoy having access to hard-to-find items, including sandwiches, smoothies, hot dogs, milkshakes, beer, frozen dinners, Richie's Italian ice, hot and iced coffee, soda, energy drinks and much more.

"We took a close look at what is lacking in Hampton Beach and really strived hard to provide the items we see as missing," said Chuck Bellemore, owner of the Beach View Market and the Beach View Inn. "For example, for years we've been hearing from our guests how getting a quick sandwich or something as simple as a cup of coffee in the off season is difficult. We are particularly excited to have f'real because of its popularity amongst college students. We really want to make it possible for visitors to come here and stay here without having to leave to get what they need."
