Let's see we already have two Mars stores, a Gaint, a Save a Lot, a Box-N-Save and Shoppers at Kane street all within what? Guessing maybe a 5 mile radius. Just what Dundalk needs one more grocery store. If anyone in the area could use a grocery store, it would be the North Point area not Dundalk. I guess the plan is to keep the BIG CHAIN store for the unkown developer of the county property across the street.

Another grocery store, No we do not need another one. Most of all some high priced store . We need places like target ect, Heck even a SUPER WAL-MART would be better than another grocery store, You are right we need better paying jobs for those who need a closer job to home, We also need places that alot of people will find most of what they are looking for to survive on a daily basis. However either way it will be a plus for the neighborhood. Atleast we wont have to see that dump anymore. Its very old and depressing looking. Hope something everyone will enjoy comes. Keeping fingers crossed.

I totally agree with you, what is with all the grocery stores around here? Wouldn't it be nice for a change in Dundalk to have some decent stores? I do not know about you, but I am certainly tired of the knock-off stores which they dump in our area. I am sure everyone has seen the big improvements in such places as Nottingham and do not forget Towson. Please note the people here really do patronize Best Buy, Barnes & Noble, Target, just to name a few, but I am sure many more like them could fill up this shopping area. Also, we would enjoy some benches overlooking a nice grass plot, instead of a another Taco Bell which stays open all night. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to go to a comfortable family restaurant for once in our area? With all of this land, just think -- everyone could enjoy a village center, and actually have some outside cafes along the way. Does this sound familiar? Oh yes, we do patronize places like this, the only thing which would be different would be the distance we travel to get there.

The drawing shows an auto supply store. They just kicked the auto supply store Advance Auto Parts (Fromerly Western Auto) out and they were one of the orginal tennants. What we don't need is another Super Market. Since I was a kid in the 60s there have been several super markets that tried to be there and failed. Super Markets are a high overhead, low profit margin business and depends on high volume sales to stay in business. I don't see this happening. There is too much competition in the area.. As for the drugs in the area, I don't do them. But if I know where they are being sold, why don't the police know? These guys sell them right out in the open. I am now getting off my saop box. -Mike
