Anchoring the new Waugh Chapel Town Centre will be a Target, Dicks Sporting Goods and Petco, and 55+ condos. Along with those great selections for the area will be a Regal’s Cinema, with a dozen screens and an IMAX theatre. Finally, we won’t have to trek over to Bowie or Annapolis to see a movie.
My wife’s personal favorite is going to be Wegman’s, while my personal vote goes to the first movie theatre in the Crofton area for quite some time. It’s been at least a decade since the only cinema in Crofton closed their doors and converted over to Gold’s Gym. Single screen movie theatres just weren’t able to cut it anymore.
What I won’t be looking forward to is the additional traffic that a major development like this will bring to the area. It’s the price of progress, and we’ll find a way to deal with it when the time comes.
2012, and the opening of the Waugh Chapel Towne Centre can’t come soon enough for a lot of people.
