November / December Updates

Updated 12/17

Hello everyone and Happy Holidays.  This time of year things slow down a bit in my business.  People are more focused on the holidays then leasing or selling.  So most of whats going on currently is all just a recap with some opening dates and other items of interest.  I will add more as I get updates.  I hope everyone has a fantastic finish to the year.

No opening date yet for Aldi and Harbor Freight tools.  This is going to take some time to complete the division of the building, separate plumbing, electric and everything else.  I'm thinking Spring of 2019 but we will see.

In other news...

Charles County is banning plastic straws and stirrers from restaurants by July 1 2020.  No enforcement will be taken until after January 1, 2021.  I have mixed feelings on this.  I have seen the use of paper straws in restaurants before and they don't work well.  I definitely don't like drinking from restaurant glasses.
