Patagonia to Purchase Seaside NJ

NEW JERSEY—Patagonia Inc. recently pledged $2.3 million toward the purchase of Seaside Heights, New Jersey, as part of its Communities for Cultural Eternity initiative. “We’ve selected Seaside because we strongly believe it’s one of the final frontiers of contemporary Americana teetering on the brink of its last 15-minutes,” says company founder, Yvon Chouinard.
