It's now owned by the same people that own Trout's Seafood down in New Market. I think different people own Trout's in Woodsboro, but I'm hoping for a comparable grocery store!

Then the whole family must be in on it--the tax records show that the ownership is the same as the Trout's Seafood. I think it's an umbrella corp. Either way, I can't wait for it to open. Did you ask when they are planning to open?

Adrenalynn, are you seriously retorting to a comment from more than six months ago? I think that bus has left the station. ;^)

Isn't a Trouts going in there? If it's as good as the one in Woodsboro it will be a definite step up and a good move for the town.

Update not that anyone cares or will ever read this. They seem to be actually working on the place now it seems every week you ride by they are doing something new which is awesome. Id like to know what the hell took them so long, id also like to know are they going to leave the wood on the front of the building like that? it was beautiful when they put it in but now its changing a gray color and looks like shit. So far they have Repaved the parking lot, replaced the handicapped signs put in a new set of automatic doors, put in another set of automatic doors. Well that's it really but when you compare it to what they were doing before its a improvement.

I meant to post this a couple weeks ago. My husband drove by and saw them working on it, so he went in to ask what was going on. It turns out that Trouts couldn't secure financing to complete the project. Family Dollar has leased half of the space and will be going in there. I think the other side is still unleased. No word on a timeline.
I would have much preferred a locally-owned grocery going in there, but given that most people are used to going to Taneytown, Westminster, Mt Airy or Woodsboro for groceries, it might not have been all that great a business plan. At least it will have some groceries for local folks who don't have transportation.

Yeah I noticed that today while driving by and its actually a dollar general instead of family dollar not that it really matters all that much. Personally as much as I would like to have seen a market their it would have been given the same fate Myers had. Lets face it Myers was not profitable for years. The quality of food in the store sucked most of it was either expired or damn near expiring, and the produce section was a absolute joke you were LUCKY to find something fresh in their. I can honestly say every time I looked at produce their was something they were trying to sell with mold on it. Why was the store like that? It wasn't because the managers didn't take care of the place it was no one shopped their and they couldn't afford to take care of the place. If this dollar general sells clothes to as well then they will be pulling in alot of people who live in union bridge and surrounding area who drive to walmart for such things. Things like pillows, toys, clothes, garden supply's, bath towels, everything you need for your house is now 2 minutes away instead of 20.
