June Updates

Post #300!  Summer is here and new businesses continue to grow in Southern Maryland!  Do you like this monthly announcement set up?  I added a search bar on the right to help with locating certain interests.  Let me know!  



Marshall's is joining the store line up at The Landing at Woodyard in Clinton.

Cold Stone and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is now open at St. Marys Marketplace in California, MD


 KFC has demolished the old store in Waldorf and is building a new one in the same location.

Wayback Burgers will be coming soon to Waldorf Shoppers World.  They will be located behind Chipotle in line with other tenants.  Their specialty is burgers and hand dipped milkshakes.  They have over 130 locations all over the world.  This will be their fifth location in Maryland and the only one in Southern Maryland accessible to the public because the one in the area is on a military base.


Firehouse Subs now open at The Landing at Woodyard in Clinton.


The new 65,000 square foot 3 level Top Golf opens in Oxon Hill this Friday at 9 a.m. at 6400 Clipper Way.  This will be their third location in the DMV area.
Hancock Family Farms will be opening a store in the Town of La Plata near the Green Turtle.  Look for an opening date in July.


Lidl Waldorf has walls going up on site.  Still no word on an opening date.  I'm guessing late Fall.
The store will be located on the corner of St. Patrick's Drive and Smallwood Drive.  Updates as we get them.

Any word on getting a Burlington coat factory in St. Mary's?

Also are they planning to do anything where the Ruby Tuesday and Cheeseburger Paradise?

Can you talk with TGIF corporation to come to St. Mary's that would be great. Also we need some nice salad places like Chop't or Sweet Greens. Any luck with reaching out.

Chris Shasho said...

I have not heard anything about Burlington.

I reached out to the people that owned Rubys and they have nothing to announce at the moment.


Chopt and Sweet green will not come to our area. I spoke with a few brokers that have dealt with them. They prefer more densely populated areas.

Chris,
Do you know if Publix or Mellow Mushroom has any interest in coming to Charles County (or any part of Southern Maryland)? Know they are getting closer, however curious what your experience is.

Thanks!

Chris, any word on Microcenter possibly coming to the old H.H.Gregg store in Waldorf?

Unknown said...

Like the new set up Chris. Thank you!

Unknown said...

Greetings Chris, Do you know what happened to Sweet Thing Black Orchid cupcake place in Waldorf? They disappeared without a trace. Thx!

Chris Shasho said...

Microcenter is not a huge company with only 25 stores across the united states. I don't foresee them coming to a small market like ours.


Sweet thing has just vanished from the earth! I cant find anything on where they went.

Chris Shasho said...

Publix isnt close enough to the area yet. Mellow mushroom I have not looked into before but i left them a message.

J Morgan said...

I wish they would put a Costco or a home Depot to compete with Lowes and BJS in St Marys County and a book store like Barnes and noble.

I see they are doing work in the old Sport and Health Building off of Post office road.

any idea what that going to be?

Brandon said...

I heard Safeway is gonna move to the shopping center in Charlotte hall, can you confirm ? Also the corner across from 84 lumber in mechanicville is cleared and their building something there, do you know what it is ?

WC Jones said...

Hi Chris do you know what is being built across the street from the Waldorf west library?

Chris Shasho said...

Sport and health building will be a county run recreation center for seniors and community.

Have not heard about safeway moving anywhere. Ill have to see about mechanicsville.

Lidl is being built across from the library.

Any franchisees expressing an interest in locating a Duck Donuts in this area?

Chris Shasho said...

I have not been contacted by anyone from that franchise.

I heard from an employee that Panera in St. Mary's County is going to be relocating. Do you have any info on timing or location?

Chris Shasho said...

I have not heard anything about Panera yet. I know the company is looking to go freestanding and with drive thru now instead of inline stores.

is there a 3rd business going in at the Harbor Freight/Aldi site?

Whats going in next to hearth and patio on 925 in Waldorf?

Bigsjr said...

Will there be any shopping centers or any type of commercial shopping coming to far west end of Waldorf 228 near North point. A lot of homes being built it would be nice to have a 7eleven, grocery store or fast food on this end other than what's in akokeek.

Chris Shasho said...

There is room for a third tenant between harbor and aldi but they have not found one yet.

None of the land is zoned for retail use on most of 228. In fact most of 228 on that end was changed to a conservation district by the previous commissioners.

Jim Allen said...

Chris, what is the status of the former Chaney Development at the old Rip's Restaurant location? Also I see that they are starting phase 3 of the Parkway behind the Sam's club so will this phase take it to 301?

Chris Shasho said...

They are still looking for tenants. No real push to build until the road expansion is done. Yes it will come out to route 301 to help take some traffic off the road.

Big John said...

Hey Chris, just wandering, will Waldorf be getting a Jersey Mikes in the near future?

Chris Shasho said...

I have not heard they were looking.

BJ said...

Hi Chris,
Do you know if Chicken Rico is going to re-open? It's been quite a long time and I don't see any progress. Thanks

Chris Shasho said...

As far as i know they are still coming back. Not sure what the hold up has been.

LadyTaz said...

Chris thanks for taking your time to post these updates. Much appreciated.
