New Tenants for La Plata

The retail center at 105 Drury Drive in La Plata is getting some new tenants and construction for some is under way.  Cold Stone Creamery and Tropical Smoothie will occupy space facing Chick-fil-A, Sprint will go into the former barber shop and Jersey Mikes Subs will take over the Sweet Frog location.  We are working to find Sweet Frog a new space in the La Plata area.  You should see some of the stores open up this summer.  Jersey Mikes will be the last to open in late Summer / Fall.  Great new additions to the area.  This center is located between Chick-fil-A and Texas Roadhouse.

UPDATE: Jersey Mike's is now open.

La Plata needs more small businesses vs all these corporate chains that keep ruining the town.

What's being built between Burger King and the Baldus Building?

Chris Shasho said...

Baldus is building a small retail center to finally replace the one destroyed in the tornado many years ago.

Nothing is planned yet for the space by advance auto in charlotte hall.

Chris,
What are the plans for the small retail center next to Baldus?

Soulfav said...

Nice!!!! If they come in the california area specifically by the movie theater it would be game over

Soulfav said...

Chris, have you heard that an Amazon distribution center will allegedly be built in White Plains, MD, near the intersection of Rt 301 and Marshall Corner Rd (Rt 227)?

Chris Shasho said...

That is not true. They were looking on our 228 business park but backed out along with several other sites.

Chris Shasho said...

May not have a franchise for the area.

They were supposed to open in Pinefield several years ago where Dunkin Donuts went in. Then they started closing the co-branded locations like the one in Bryans Road. They have some locations north of us in PG County. They would do well here. Something different is always welcome!!

Any word on the Sweet Frog in LaPlata? I thought it was doing well. Why did they let Jersey Mikes take their spot?

Emily Perillo said...

Do you have a date on the tropical smoothie opening?

Chris Shasho said...

Sweet frog is looking for another location but has not picked a site yet. We are not sure if the landlord did not renew the lease or they wanted to sell the franchise. It will be a different operator.

No dates yet for opening of any of the new tenants yet.

Unknown said...

What's going on with Krispy Kreme in Pinefield? Any opening date?

Chris Shasho said...

working on an opening by the end of the year.

I saw that they have already started on the jersey mikes. Do you have any information about the other few stores coming in and when they will be here?

What is the size of the small space in the planned Baldur Building?

Chris Shasho said...

I believe its 1,324 sf. I am waiting on an update from them.

Anonymous said...

I see the sign is up for Jersey Mike's. What is the target opening date?

Chris Shasho said...

Maybe open mid September.

Wow, this blog is great, good info to be had. New visitor here.

Shocked to learn Sweet Frog has leapt away, but thrilled they're looking for a nearby pad to land on. The little ones really enjoyed their delights, and it is always great to see the kiddos smile. Their old spot was convenient, particularly with the surrounding mix of shopping options. Oh well, at least they're planning to make another splash in town.

Since it seems people are sorta submitting requests here. While we just got Sonic Burger, and not to dim the volume on what they have to offer, but what about an In-N-Out Burger? I sooooo miss their burgers! It's been years.

And if everyone here feels La Plata is getting saturated with too much business. Not an opinion I share, by the way. But if that is truly the case. Then, let's welcome them to another southern Maryland town instead - California. And just maybe we can get some bureaucrat to rubberstamp on the idea of adding another six to the name of the route from here to there. We'd be all set. I know, I know, a little too much California dreamin'.

None the less, it would be nice to have an In-N-Out around.

Chris Shasho said...

Thanks for the comments. So far In and Out has not made it past Texas. I'd like to try one in the future. It could happen one day.

Do you know when the tropical smoothie will start being built?

A Jersey Mike's in the California MD area would be awesome....no one down here can make a decent cheesesteak
