I remember as a kid, one of my favorite cartoons was The Flintstones. For those of us old enough, you’ll recall that Fred worked at a quarry, using one of those massive earth-moving machines. One of my most vivid memories was how he reacted when the whistle blew at the end of the day and it was time to go home!
I couldn’t help but think about the cartoon when I saw the massive rocks being shoved around in the picture below, which is just next to the Harbor Shops in Havre de Grace, on route 40 next to Rite Aid. I’ve lived in the area for decades, and never thought I’d see this lot built on; it’s a little high off the ground, and seemed kind of steep. I guess they can still make it happen.
From what I hear, the lot is planned for more retail. The plans show another convenience store (Havre de Grace seems to adore convenience!) with gas pumps, a 3,500 square foot restaurant (probably fast food), and an inline strip for more assorted shopping. As of right now, none of the space is leased, and they are only finishing up the site work.
So, knowing this, what would you like to see there? What new restaurant does Havre de Grace have the capacity to support? Which convenience store? Let us know!
