LA Fitness coming to Waldorf

I have been informed that the former Old Country Buffet space and perhaps adjoining spaces will be transformed into LA Fitness.  Details as we get them.  Some exterior constructions is under way now for the new facade. 


UPDATE: Looks like they will be rebuilding the entire building so they can get the added height for the store.
UPDATE 4/17/15 They will have a swimming pool and basketball court in the building.
UPDATE 10/30/15 Grand Opening January 1, 2016  A Preview Center is now open by Men's Warehouse
UPDATE 12/3/2015  I have done a new post about this but i see most traffic gets directed back to this old post.   The basketball court was taken out of the space due to space restrictions.  The interior work is underway.

I heard that a 64 lane bowling alley is coming to Brandywine. Can you confirm that? We need something better than amf waldorf.

I have not heard that one yet. Where did they say this was going? in the shopping center area?

This will be great no more trips to bowie, upper Marlboro, Alexandria etc for the gym. I agree a bowling alley be great. Any word on when Carolina kitchen in brandywine? Also anything being done with that space where the car dealer use to be 301 south. Be a nice fit for bowling alley pool hall Dave n buster type place.

Still waiting on Carolina Kitchen to get started but they have been quiet. Nothing else going on in the area currently. Still waiting to see if Wal-Mart will move towards the north end of town.

When will the Ashley Furniture store be opening? I know you said April 2015, but it doesn't look like it will be done this month from the outside.

Everyone, I would like to share a Whole Foods Market petition for Waldorf, MD. Here is the link. Please sign to bring Whole Foods Market to the Waldorf, MD area. Maybe we can convince Whole Foods Market through a petition to come to our area. The petition link is below!

Hooray for LA Fitness! I was surprised to see that there wasn't one near Waldorf when I moved to the area. Thanks for the update, Chris!

Hello Chris, Just was wondering if the Carolina Kitchen was still coming to brandywine?

I was wondering what are they building beside the WaWa?

XTina Brown said...

what is the status of the sonic drive-in restaurant in waldorf. Is it coming or not?

Chris Shasho said...

Ashley furniture seems to be taking longer due to the bad winter. I would say late this year it should open.

Have not heard Harbor freight. We showed them a few places before but didn't settle on any of them.

Carolina Kitchen has not been in contact with the landlord. We do not know the status currently but they signed a lease.

Chris Shasho said...

The building next to Wawa near the county line is rumored to be AAA auto service and travel.

Sonic is going thru the permit process. These things take a long time. Hope to be up and running at the end of the year.

PG county is getting a whole foods and they already have a wegmans. Since our demographic is "similar", is there any chance of getting one in Charles county? With the success of moms, I'm sure their research will show that similar stores will do well.

Do you know when the LA Fitness will be completed?

Chris Shasho said...

Still dont have the numbers they want to get them down here. Too many of us leave to work. They need daytime population for lunch crowd.

LA Fitness land is still being made ready for them to take over and build. Foundation was being dug up yesterday. Long process to start from scratch again. That's what they requested. Maybe six months from now, could be sooner.

If they have water aerobics classes there I will be changing gyms.

Will the LA Fitness in Waldorf have a basketball court and pool?

Chris Shasho said...

Yes it will. I had made an update to the post about that.

I am so excited about the LA Fitness! I'll be waiting outside the door on opening day :) Just hope the pool isn't tiny... a little nervous that the space is going to be too small to have a decent sized pool/basketball court areas. Fingers crossed that it's at somewhere between 5-10 lap lanes at least.

Is there a projected date that the gym will open?

Chris Shasho said...

The last update I did today shows the opening. January 1, 2016

I heard they'll only have a swimming pool and no basketball court. Is that true?
