Woodmore Towne Centre Part 2

I opened up my Washington Post this morning and saw a flyer for the grand opening of the Woodmore Towne Centre at Glenarden. The flyer mentioned the grand opening on Friday October 22, 2010.  Besides Wegmans, Costco, Best Buy and Petco there will also be a Sleepy’s, Hour Eyes, Noodles and Company, PNC, Subway, T-Mobile and many others.  J.C. Penney is scheduled to open in the Spring of 2011.  This ad was also on the back page of today’s Washington Post Express newspaper.

I also checked out the Petrie Ross Ventures website where you can see a site map of the new shopping center. Check it out here. You need Adobe Acrobat to see the site map. Just go to Detailed Information in the right column, scroll down and you will see Complete Media Package. Click on the link and you’ll see a sixteen page marketing package including the site map. I enlarged it to about 400% so I could read the names of some of the stores and restaurants since the lettering is very small for some of the retail stores. There are alot of nameless restaurant spots.  Some of the eating establishments listed include Sam Louie (a pizzeria), Noodles & Company (I love that place), Irie Cafe, a Vietnamese restaurant and Subway. Other stores listed include Beauty Mart, Party City, Woodmore Wine Store, Super Spa and Nails, Old Navy, Centre Cleaners, Capri (never heard of this place), Ultimo (never heard of this place) and plenty of other nameless retail spots. There’s also a police/security area (thank goodness) and several banks.  And lets not forget that there is plenty of parking.

On the bottom left of the site map under site data I saw Fitness mentioned that’s over 45,000 square feet (almost the same size as Best Buy). I’m wondering if a fitness center like Bally’s or some other fitness place will be there.

Woodmore Towne Centre looks like what many folks thought The Boulevard was gonna be.  A really nice shopping center.  Well we all know how The Boulevard turned out.  The riff raff took over that shopping center.  The Boulevard is located next to the Largo Town Center metro which many folks say is part of the problem.  Woodmore Towne Centre is located a few miles from the Largo Town Center metro.  That would be one serious walk on Lottsford Road, Route 202 and then St. Josephs Drive.  Hopefully the riff raff will stay put at The Boulevard and Woodmore Towne Centre will be a nice, safe shopping center for the rest of us.

  1. Yes 5 years after I posted this they’re still not in Prince Georges County. The National Harbor would be a good location but I haven’t heard anything about it.

  2. Fine by me, apple can stay away. If they don’t like my county, I don’t like them. signed.. Happy Android User.

  3. Oh really? I read somewhere that a 24 Hour Fitness Gym is opening at Bowie Town Center too. They’re taking over the old Bed, Bath & Beyond store which moved to Waugh Chapel in Crofton.

    Woodmore is also getting a couple of new restaurants. Copper Canyon and Chiptole Mexican Grill.

  4. They are getting a new 24 Hour Fitness Gym there, the lease has already been signed.

  5. It would great if LA Fitness come to this complex

  6. Greg, I doubt if Apple would place a store there. Apple skipped over Prince Georges County but they do have stores in Anne Arundel, Howard and of course Montgomery County.

    Sonia, I’m a regular at Wegmans and Costco too. Costco is really nice on Mondays when it’s not as crowded. So far things seem to be going okay at the shopping center. Haven’t seen any riff raff and I hope it stays that way.

    I was surprised to see that Old Navy is building a store there.

  7. I shop at Wegmans and Costco regularly. As long as they keep the movie theatres, and stores that attract younger crowds out..this center will be fine. Look at the Blvd! Smh. And sorry, Apple will bring the riff-raff, put it in Pentagon City. Right now, I enjoy seeing people white, black, hispanic,ect. going about their business without interruption. I actually saw one lady give her keys to a stranger to go see why her alarm would not chirp. The man walked to her van and saw that her door was ajar. This is how it should be. KEEP THE KNUCKLE HEADS AWAY!! They’ll ruin it for sure, even the deer will leave.

  8. They’re expanding now and this shopping center seems to be an exception to the pg county rule

  9. Not sure if Apple would open a store in Prince Georges County. We all know the reputation the county has. But it would be nice.

  10. Hoping for an apple store in one of the unnamed retail spots! Fingers crossed
