Retail Market Segment Grocery Stores

Glen Burnie remains a lower tier/lower income per
household market.
The middle to upper-tier grocery stores appear to be
concentrated at the southern end of the corridor,
near the higher income households of Anne
Arundel County.
Weis recently bought 5 Mars and 38 Food Lion
locations, but chose not to purchase either of the
Glen Burnie area locations (they already have a
location in Pasadena).

The Glen Burnie/Route 2 Corridor (North) is
physically constrained and there is limited
opportunity for new development without
razing existing structures/properties

Harris Teeter signed a lease to

anchor the Magothy Gateway Center

Most of the new development appears to be

taking place to the south in the less
congested, more affluent areas.
Existing tenants will likely need to renovate to
keep up with the evolving market;
therefore, value-add plays and
recycling/redevelopment during the
recovery period may afford higher rents
for existing tenants/landlords going

part of a center wide facelift (June 16)

Retail Revitalization
Route 2 (Ritchie Highway) is relatively built
Anne Arundel County has designated this
corridor as a Community Revitalization
District. The revitalization districts offer
flexibility of use and tax incentives to
encourage redevelopment of older and
vacant commercial areas.
