I heard from someone that there is a spot in the same plaza Hobby Lobby is. There used to be a grocery store there. One that was next to Third Eye Comics.

Went thru there yesterday, no sign of work and lease sign still in place. Saw a sign one was coming but can't remember where.

Is there any word on when Sweetbay in Leonardtown will be opening? I know they placed an ad for waitstaff and bartenders not to long ago. I checked on Facebook, but couldnt find any information.
As of a week ago, they were still had an ad going seeking applicants for all positions. I don't see any firm date on when they will open.
They are hoping for end of the year (2019 for you smart alecks). I'd think you would have a kitchen staff in place before getting this close to an opening.

I love my Kobalt battery tools. Had the impact driver and drill for two years now. Just picked up the angle grinder. Not suited for a production sort of deal, but for the occasional use sort of guy like me, awesome. Rusted 1/2" bolts on the new to me polaris ATVs snowplow feet, like buttah. :)

I told folks honestly when I worked Hardware/Tools that Kobalt is (despite Lowe's adverts) a good home workshop tool, not every day commercial grade.

Yeah, if I was driving 3,000 drywall screws a day, maybe not. But that little impact driver does a good job for my needs. .

I really wish QBH had used drywall screws, instead of adhesive and nails.

One of my issues with subdivisions, production speed overrules best practices sometimes. Virtually nobody with a belt fed drill-gun can keep up with a skilled guy with a hammer who sets one nail per hit.

A while back there was mention of a Royal Farms going into Dunkirk area, but wondering if it's more the Huntingtown area near Cox Road where all the land is now cleared off? Calvert has been taking a hit from the locals for expansion of all the town centers and removing the major and minor distinction and just classifying them all as simply "town centers." There is also a new church proposed in the area of Cox Road but unsure if that could be it or if the church is further down Cox Road.
