Marine Specialties, Provincetown

4.5
#1 of 10 in Shopping in Provincetown
Marine Specialties has been a Provincetown landmark for over 50 years. Often known simply as "the army-navy store," Marine Specialties is an eclectic treasure trove of salvage, surplus, slight IRs, closeouts, overruns, misprints, mistakes, spare parts, odd lots, cast-offs, and new and nearly-new items. Over time it's grown to be the kind of jumbled, inclusive, and eccentric "army-navy" store Provincetown deserves. Many people young and old call this their favorite shop. History Started in 1961 by Bob and Elizabeth Patrick as a Retail Mail Order business with a small hand illustrated catalog. Marine Specialties evolved into an eclectic Army Navy store during the 1960's.The Patrick's have traveled the world hunting down the unusual and unique. Since 1970 they have supplied other stores worldwide, although predominantly in the US and Japan. Three generations now work in this long established family business Open Daily in season

  • I love this place. Been shopping here once or twice a year since the 80's, and have found many wonderful bargains over the years. If you're walking down commercial street in P-Town, you need to stop in and have a look around.
  • Probably at least 15 years ago, I went here with my family and I bought an awesome leather jacket here. I didn't recognize the brand name, but this thing was heavy duty. Was a bomber style leather jacket with distressed leather all around and lots of cool hidden pockets inside. Still have that leather jacket and it's one of the best I've had.
