Starbucks and Panda Express Coming to St. Mary’s Marketplace in California

January 12, 2018

Harris Teeter set to open January 24th

Baltimore-based developer Klein Enterprises announced today that national chains Starbucks, Batteries Plus and Panda Express have signed leases at St. Mary’s Marketplace in California, MD. The anchor tenant, Harris Teeter, is set to open this month on January 24th. Klein previously announced that Bay Country Liquors, Café Rio, Great Clips, Mod Pizza and Nail Trix would also be opening at the center this first quarter of 2018.

“We’re excited to announce the first drive through Starbucks and Panda Express coming to California, MD, joining our growing list of national tenants at St. Mary’s Marketplace,” said Patricia Palumbo, director of leasing and marketing for Klein Enterprises.

Starbucks and Panda Express, expected to open this summer, will operate 2,400 and 2,294 square feet of retail space, respectively, at the 106,000-square foot shopping center. Starbucks will feature a unique interior design inspired by the Naval Air Station Patuxent River.

St. Mary’s Marketplace is located within close proximity to the growing residential neighborhoods of Wildewood, Lexington Park and Solomons Island, and eight miles from the Naval Air Station Patuxent River, home to the National Air Warfare Center, Aircraft Division. St. Mary’s County is also home to the 9th top metropolitan area boasting the highest concentration of millionaires in the United States.

    • Flounder on January 12, 2018 at 7:29 pm

      What they need are more independent small businesses..

        sorry but red lobster is nasty microwaved trash… find a local seafood restaurant we have plenty of them

      • The Paperboy on January 16, 2018 at 9:43 am

        I hate to be the bearer of bad news. Red Lobster sucks.

      Chili’s??? Ugh, that is as bad as Applebees!

    Cannot wait for Harris and Teeter. Starbucks will have a drive through too!

    • Flounder on January 12, 2018 at 7:28 pm

      Typical sheeple talk

  4. Concerned on January 12, 2018 at 3:06 pm

    It should be criminal the amount of building they’re doing in this county. Damn shame.

    This entire town is nothing but shopping and eating. No other things to do.

    • Flounder on January 12, 2018 at 7:30 pm

      Fast food nation

      Feel free to use your resources and capital to open something to entertain everyone.

      Ridiculous.

    • Rick Storm on January 13, 2018 at 9:37 am

      Or, you can smoke crack, shoot heroin, or do oxy. Just another sh*thole.

    Love to see an ARBYs any day built in the new St Mary’s Marketplace ..

  7. JOSH FURY on January 12, 2018 at 5:41 pm

    When are we getting a Dennys or a Home depot?

  8. Best Coast West Coast on January 12, 2018 at 5:53 pm

    This outdated county is slowly making progress. The people we hear complaining want to revert to isolationism.

  9. Doreen on January 12, 2018 at 7:47 pm

    I wish I can find more kids friends places to play. It will nice to save and buster.
    It will be also nice if we have a small shopping mall we don’t need to go Waldorf and do shopping there.
    I would like furniture shops.

  10. Free the cars on January 12, 2018 at 9:56 pm

    Can’t wait for the increased traffic at the Grade F intersection. This is going to be a disaster.

      no doubt

    So change it or move

  12. Angela on January 12, 2018 at 10:37 pm

    Love California it seems to be building up quick. Wish they would put some kid places there :)

  13. Joe on January 12, 2018 at 10:38 pm

    They need to stop building all these restaurants and build something for the kids down here

    • Jennifer Tennyson on January 14, 2018 at 8:03 pm

      How about a homeless shelter, a drug rehab/inpatient/outpatient center and a free medical clinic. That is what we really need, instead of another overpriced coffee shop and a yuppie grocery store. Any new construction should help those in need. We have a severe drug and homeless situation in this county, we need to properly address it, instead we build worthless, feel good, millennial magnets. Sad.

        Walden Sierra is on St. Andrew’s Church Road…go there. Why would a business owner want to build something that is only going to cost them money? They are in the business to make a profit. There are resources in this county to help addicts but they have to want to help themselves. You could put a center or free clinic on every corner but if the addict doesn’t want to help themselves, then it’s all for nothing.

    • Bob The Builder on January 16, 2018 at 6:08 am

      Well yeah – The developers will build the hell out of these acres until it is a true dump – just like Waldorf.
      But so far as kids – What ever happened to that being the parent’s responsibilities?
      Like – buy a home with them in mind already? A yard? Spend time playing with them?

      It really isn’t up to the county commissioners to pay for each kid’s recreational needs.

      True – a REAL “park” of a major sort would be a nice thing – but in this deed-by-gawd county, they like to rake in big profits for their development.

    They need to build something for the kids down here

    • Adam 12 on January 15, 2018 at 8:56 am

      Who is they? Entertain your own kids, it is your responsibility, not mine or the taxpayer.

  15. barbara on January 13, 2018 at 5:43 am

    Once beautiful St. Marys has become ugly. Too many shops, too much traffic. We have ruined a beautiful county.

    • Flounder on January 15, 2018 at 7:31 am

      It was never beautiful

      • Jim on January 17, 2018 at 7:19 am

        Lexington Park has always been ugly.

  16. SJ on January 13, 2018 at 7:30 am

    I’m so excited to be getting Harris Teeter and drive thru Starbucks & Panda Express! Yeah!!!

    • Flounder on January 15, 2018 at 7:30 am

      Lmao

  17. Traffic problems on January 13, 2018 at 7:49 am

    Good luck with traffic on 235 and St Andrews. Entrances/exits look bad

  18. cooFFEEE on January 13, 2018 at 7:49 am

    so two starbucks within what 1/4 mile of each other, and both on same side? maybe are they moving?

  19. Joe on January 13, 2018 at 9:33 am

    Um-movies, game stores, libraries, churches,music lessons, theater, dancing studious- just off the top of my head………..

    PF Chang’s and Krispy Kreme would be nice in this location!!

    • Flounder on January 15, 2018 at 7:29 am

      Sure, if you’re one of the sheeple

  22. Malcolm X on January 13, 2018 at 3:04 pm

    Nice. If your job is retail or fast food you are set for life in the 3 southern MD counties.

  23. Nancy Morgan on January 13, 2018 at 6:47 pm

    I like that they are getting Great Clips. Very reasonable haircuts for Seniors on Wednesdays
    .

  24. Sarah on January 14, 2018 at 10:00 am

    Really another Starbucks? There’s one right up the street. We need an Ulta!

  25. Tammy Higgs on January 15, 2018 at 2:20 am

    The Starbucks up the street is closing as soon as the new one is built!
