Proposed Waldorf Walmart Super Center Pulled

Walmart has pulled their proposal to build a new super center on the former Embassy Dairy land behind Sonic in Pinefield.  There was a lot of opposition against it moving forward due to concerns for the Mattawoman creek as well as opposition from local unions and residents.  Similar to what happened in La Plata.  We will have to see how this will affect the Western Parkway being completed.  It is unknown at this time if they will move to another location or out of the county completely.  The land owners still have a meeting scheduled on 7/26 to apply for a large box user that the public can attend.  Check the county website for correct time and date.

UPDATE:  county meeting has now been been cancelled.

UPDATE 10-28-16: The land has been sold to another developer for a different transit oriented mixed use.

Hobby Lobby Coming to California, MD


Hobby Lobby will be taking over the former K-Mart location in California, MD.  I am waiting on confirmation from my source but they should open later this year in time for the holiday season.
Hobby Lobby owns 700 stores in 47 states.  They also offer one of the highest wage rates in the industry with full-time employees earning $15.35 an hour and part-time employees receiving $10.23 an hour.  Not to bad.  They are still looking for a spot in Waldorf and we have given them a few places to look at.  So we will see what happens.

UPDATE 11/17/16:  Landlord has started construction on the facade work of the building.  Opening wont be until early 2017.

UPDATE 3/1/17:  Grand Opening date is April 17, 2017
