2. some building being built right now off 5 in Callaway, smooshed between the daycare, A&W, and the church? I just saw what looks like a steeple added to the roofline this morning... is the church expanding, moving, or getting some competition?
I just happened to be getting gas at the A&W when they picked that steeple up and put it in place. Had to stay and watch... ;-)

for the longest time the roofline reminded me of a Pizza Hut and I kept thinking, that can't be right :lmao:


inorite?.....makes little sense to me, economically speaking.
and with sheetz a half a mile away. How many places do you need to buy a cold soda and a bag of chips :doh:

because that's what we need next to two convenience store/gas stations and a grocery store. :tantrum
Well somebody thinks it's what you need or they would not be putting their money into building it.
It's not up to the county to decide what businesses open.
Unless we become socialists, there the government will tell you what you are allowed to do.
want to start a bicycle shop, sorry, not on the approved list of things the area needs.
We do need a sewage technician, you can apply for that business license.
That is not a joke, that is basically a conversation that was related to me by the person who had it in a former iron curtain country
after they allegedly had over thrown the dictator, but were still "communists".

And that.....is true, despite all the damage we know it will cause the existing local businesses.. Freedom costs..and often it costs people or businesses we care a lot about.

I thought I read the other day that it was approved. Maybe I'm wrong, I'll have to see if I can find the article again.
I thought that one was a done deal myself. I figured it would be great for the high school crowd. They would have another option for smokes, blunt wrappers, and energy drinks. What could go wrong? :sshrug:

As far as I know...that one got shot down, so they're looking at the 5/249 site now.
I had the locations confused. The one in Callaway has been approved. This was in the County Times.

A controversial plan to build a new 7-11 convenience store and fueling station at the intersection of Piney Point Road and Route 5 in Callaway was approved by the county planning commission Aug. 17.
But it was on by a 3-to-2 vote.

Sounds like a solid business plan. If they got turned down it's probably because one of the commissioners decided the idea was so good they would do it themselves.

What is going between the Lexington Park Hyundai dealership and the WaWa? Expansion of the dealership, or something else?

7-11s are more or less a local business, as much as a Shell station Franchises.
Still jobs.
If people want the local business to survive they need to patronize them.

FWIW, I all but refuse to enter Walmart. It's rare and it's desperation.

Still jobs you say...but is it a net increase in jobs? New businesses opening while existing businesses failing....
