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.

Is there room for Hobby Lobby to come to Shoppers World????? You said they want a space with a grocery store in it.

Isn't there one just 5 miles up the road?

SOME GOOD NEWS FOR A CHANGE!

I have not seen the actual size of the stores going in so there may not be enough left for hobby lobby. We will see.

Can you comment on what is happening to the older bank building in front of Bed Bath and Beyond on 301 in Waldorf? It was roped-off yesterday, so it looks like someone is finally doing something. Now, if they could do something about that decrepit gas station nearby, too.

Chris Shasho said...

I think they are putting a new roof on it. There was a long term lease with the bank so they were not in a rush to lease it again. The gas station is owned by a separate group than the shopping center and seems they just don't care about it.

Has Wegmans or Whole Foods considered building in Southern MD? What about a Kaiser Permanente?

Oh my gosh! Aldi will be great for Waldorf!!!!

Chris Shasho said...

Wegmans and Whole Foods have no interest in the area.

Kaiser has not called us looking for anything either. Maybe because of Medstars large presence.

There's probably not enough space for Hobby Lobby. There was a posting on Loopnet that shows the grocery store taking around 21,000 square feet and Harbor Freight taking around 16,000 square feet. The middle space is left over.

Hopefully Greenburg Gibbons can attract Wegmans to the Waldorf Station development. If anyone can get them here it would be them. Their drawings are pretty obvious they are trying to attract them. And that is probably the best bet for a Hobby Lobby too.

Glad to see they'll end up doing some renovations to the center. It looks really bad. Even the new Burlington sign they put up looks damaged around the edges. Hopefully that's just temporary.

Too bad it's Aldi and not Trader Joe's though.

Is the Aldi in Brandywine being converted to a Trader Joe’s? Can’t believe we need two Aldi’s so close or that the Albrecht group thinks this area is so low rent that all we get are discount stores.

Chris Shasho said...

We have targets in Brandywine and Waldorf so why not? A lot of people don't cross the county line to shop. Too much traffic as well. A Waldorf store grabs that group.

Chris - any insight that can be provided on the development (timeline, future tenants, etc.) on route 228 next to the turf farm? I know they just completed the turns in the intersection.

Unknown said...

Yes in PG county though.

Any openidate for Harbor freight?

Chris Shasho said...

No opening date. It’s going to take a while to get the building ready. Maybe late spring.
