The Shoppers Food Warehouse is closing in two weeks and i heard that the grocery store Mckays is coming in its place. I heard that Mckays is an inferior supermarket.

I don't think it's inferior. Inferior to a Wegman's yes. Inferior to Aldi's no.

I've shopped at the McKays in St Mary's County for years. I love their deli. The deli compete's with Nick's, IMO. They carry SOMD stuffed ham, in season, for example. They have brown eggs from a local farm. They carry a lot of local fresh fish and seafood, uncooked. Their bakery is excellent. The one in St Mary's County carries beer, wine and alcohol but I doubt that will work in CC though I hope so. The cashiers are friendly and their prices are competitive. The store is clean. The bathrooms are clean. The fruits and veggies are fresh.

If that's inferior, give me inferior.

McKays really🙄

Well not too excited about McKay's replacing them. I figured it was going to close at some point since the parent company is trying to exit, but definitely surprised they are the ones picking up those two locations. The Waldorf location is huge - 70,000 square feet. Not really sure what their other stores are like, but with the grocery business being so difficult, and the two new stores opening up (Aldi and Lidl) definitely some more competition. Hopefully Publix expands to the area at some point. They are in Richmond so I would guess that a DC expansion would be in their future.

What happened to the relocation of mckays in charlotte hall? What is going to happen to that property? They went to the expense of making road right-of-ways and that was the end of it.

With AC Moore closing, could we possibly be getting a Hobby Lobby?

As of now McKay seems to have put that relocation site on the back burner for now. Costs are too much. In order to keep your permit you have to continue to do some improvements over time.

The AC moore site is too small for Hobby Lobby. They have looked in the past but didnt like any of the locations.

So instead of a McKay we get an another empty building. For all the naysayers about a McKay's, thanks - your wish came true. No McKay's. Now don't you dare complain if that building stays empty.

Perhaps Hobby Lobby can use the Shopper's space. Debbie Downers', please be quiet. I don't do Hobby Lobby but almost any legitimate business establishment is better than empty buildings.

Mckay's is going into the Waldorf shoppers food warehouse space.

Tractor supply is having the septic system upgraded.

Have not heard anything more about the royal farms other than that meeting. They are looking around.
