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.

Little fish is trying to open by the end of December.  They are located at 173 St. Patrick's Drive in

Panda Express now open at St. Mary's marketplace in California, MD.

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.

September / October Updates

Now that Burlington has moved they can begin construction on new tenants Aldi and Harbor Freight Tools that will take over two thirds of Burlington's former space.   No projected opening date yet but I'm thinking early spring 2019.  There will be one additional space for another tenant.  The shopping center is also working on a new facade for the buildings.

Aldi Coming to Waldorf

Aldi Market will be coming to Waldorf Shoppers World.  They will occupy a section of the former Burlington store which is moving to the former Sports Authority space.  Harbor Freight Tools will occupy part of the space as well.  Construction should start as soon as Burlington has moved all of their inventory over to the new space.  The Shopping center is also working on a remodel to update its look.

Aldi is a German discount grocery chain with over 10,000 stores in 20 countries and 1,600 stores currently in the United States.  They are no-frills stores and many of its products are their own brand.  Getting a shopping cart requires paying a quarter but you get it back when you return the cart.  Sometimes items in the store are only available for a short amount of time so if you want something don't wait.  Bring your own bags because they are not supplied.
