    The JC Penny is too small, IMO. Not much in there if you are used to the big stores. There is a slim selection of clothing, a few bath & bed items and some shoes, no perfume or make-up counter, although they do have a hair salon.

    Used Bookstore

    There is a Used Bookstore in Prince Frederick called Second Look Books. When the new Library is built in Lexington Park, they will have a used book area to buy. Also they have a once a year sale on the books donated. Also in LaPlata at the Library they have a used book store also. The LaPlata libaray one has been getting construction all winter, and supposedly it will be ready for June or July but that was before the Tornado.

    The flea market is good in Charlotte Hall.

    Shopping malls, I like the Potomac Mills Mall. Of couse I am from Boston and got spoiled by malls on every corner. But most of my stuff comes from Walmart and Target anyhow.

    Crabcakes either Schiebles in Ridge or Evan's. My boyfriend is from the county so he taught me how to eat crabs.

    Man I agree. JC Penny socks big time! Course I am a guy, but talk about limits of work dress clothes. I never seen an area with such poor shopping choices -- unless you are a Walmart/Kmart junkie.... Places where I come from, those kind of stores didn't get too many customers because there were malls and REAL choices.....

    Now that would be an awesome "profit making" endeavor... build a mall in SOMD and watch the Raley's kneel before you! :eek:

    Course the Raley's own a large % of SOMD and sit on those deciding county boards... umm... ever wonder why there isn't a mall in St Mary's county?
    Nothing is certain except death, taxes - and calls from telemarketers regardless of do-not-call.gov. That don't work! Ask AT&T!

    My hubby is a golf fanatic , how are the courses up there ? I am sure he'll be checking out the greens up there once we are settled in . He and my son also love to fish, I posted a thread asking for fishing advice on one of the other threads , so far noone has replied ... I am sure my son will want to check out that place with the climbing wall , he loves them ...
    Hubby and I also want to take him crabbing ... we used to go crabbing in Destin, FL many years ago when we were teenagers ... We all love baseball, football and nascar ... we grew up being Braves fans but we are just as happy going to the minor league games here and a few Jaguar games , nothing like a ball game , hot dog and peanuts kind of evening:D
    Are there any racetracks (car) there ? We've gone to Daytona here many times to see a NASCAR race , lots of fun !
    We also like to go camping now and then, I have noticed there seem to be a lot of state parks in southern Maryland ... can't wait to visit them . Also, how are the beaches there ? I know they are totally different from florida beaches but they look pretty nonetheless .

    well

    Well if all ya need is a 6 dollar oil filter..then get it at all the other auto shops. If napa don't have they can get it in 1 day. A little bit of planning might be needed is all.

    Now I need a HUGE socket 2 and 1/8" but have yet to search serioulsy besides buying it...Autozone has tool lending program. Maybe some of the other auto stores do as well...the point is. You don't have to have Autozone to make this palce a good place.

    LOL. And heretic or whatever If your unhappy here. Move right? Sounds simple enough to me lol

    You're kind of limited in the racing department around here but here is a link to the local "drag" track.
