September / October Updates

 Updated 10/18/18


 
Burlington is now open in its new location at Waldorf Shoppers Word.  Its a much brighter store with a better layout.



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 next year.  There will be one additional space for another tenant.  The shopping center is also working on a new facade for the buildings.





Shark Bar and Seafood Restaurant is scheduled to open this fall Late October in the Pinefield South Shopping Center in Waldorf.


The former Lonestar will become a Middle Eastern restaurant.  There is no opening date set.


Kahn Grill will open in the former Bucca space in the St. Charles Town Center Mall.  It is supposed to open this fall.



Fosters grill is looking to open a new location in La Plata in the former Red Oak space by Roy Rogers.  Looking at early 2019 opening.

Urban BBQ has closed in La Plata

Rite Aid closed in La Plata due to Walgreens buying the company.

K-Mart in Prince Frederick will close due to Sears Bankruptcy.

I just recently heard about the waldorf Urban Redevolpment project. Is this still happening/in the works. Looks interesting.

I talked about it in April of 2016. Put redevelopment in the search bar and you will find my blog about it. I'm waiting to see something happen. Right now the zoning change has killed some of owners chances of renting their spaces because some uses are not allowed in that area anymore such as auto repair.

Any reason for the closing of Urban Barbq? Didn't they open and close the one off of Berry Rd like within a month? Do you know if they are corporate owned like Fuddruckers and Cheeseburger in Paradise were supposedly owned by the same corp.

Any idea what's going on with KFC? Are they closing temporarily or is it permanent?

Chris Shasho said...

Urban BBQ could not keep up on their rent. So that means not enough business.

Yes Fuddruckers and cheeseburger are owned by Luby's

You mean Spoons on Berry rd? They couldn't get enough good help.

Which KFC? Its hard to get info from corporate stores.

What's happening to the old bank across from The old b.coat factor? Near bath bed and beyond.


What are they building behind the popeyes near lowes.

Chris Shasho said...

Putting a new roof on it that's all.

I think its a body shop being built.

Chris,

Did the Timothy Creek Development property in Brandywine sell because I see they have completed half the road going by the old HH Gregg Distribution center?

Any rumors on when the property formally owned by Chaney Co that was going to have the new Walmart is going to start construction? Have they found any anchor tenants like a Harris Teeter?

Chris Shasho said...

The road was going in regardless to help get the locals off of 301 and help with traffic. I have not heard about any development starting on the residential parcels.

They are still looking for anchors. The supermarkets aren't doing a lot of expanding from what we gathered at the last shopping center convention. The county still needs to finish the western parkway expansion.

For KFC - it looks like the one in Waldorf is closed at the moment? Their parking lot is torn up and doesn't look like anything is happening inside?

Any updates regarding what's moving into the old Safeway building in Bryans Road?

What happened to the Rite-Aid in La Plata?

Chris Shasho said...

They have not had any luck with a new anchor store. They had asked the county to allow an indoor storage facility to take part of the center but i think it was turned down.

The rite aid i think fell to the fact there are too many pharmacies in the area. I have not heard anything else.

Saw a sign on the former Riye Aid in LaPlata that said Walgreens.

As far as Western Charles, until something big happens, I believe you will still see business leave. The county hasn’t really helped with any improvements and most of the residents act like Indian Head and Bryan’s Road exists.

Hi Chris, do you know if they are remodeling the KFC in Waldorf off of 301 near the Taco Bell or did they close for good?

Chris Shasho said...

I believe its a remodel but I have not heard anything about it.

Chris Shasho said...

Rite aid closed because walgreens bought them. They dont need both in town.

Unknown said...

Hi Chris, I seen a sign for "Waldorf station" in front of the empty lot where the Waldorf motel and restaurant used to be. Does that mean they are about to begin construction?

Chris Shasho said...

They may just be advertising for the property. I don't think they have any solid tenants yet. They are trying to get different tenants and its been tough.
