Proposed Royal Farms Would be Open 24 Hours
The proposed Royal Farms located at the intersection of Routes 32 and 26 will be open 24 hours a day.
The proposed Royal Farms that has sparked comments from area organizations and residents would be open 24-hours a day if construction is approved, according to Patrick Varga, Carroll County's development review project manager.
The Exxon across the street on the opposite corner of the intersection offers a convenience store and gas pumps that are 24-hours. Walgreens, which also shares the intersection, is only open until 10 p.m. daily.
7-Eleven, located further down on Route 26, also has a 24-hour gas station and convenience store.
Martin's grocery store is open 24-hours as well, but their gas station is only open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.
This Royal Farms location will be eighth gas station within a three-mile radius of Eldersburg with an additional gas station being constructed at the new Liberty Exchange business community on Liberty Road.
The business would become the first to fill the empty gap left by the demolished Korner Karry Out and Milt’s Liquor Store, vacant for more than 10 years.
The site plan includes a 5,125-square-foot building and 16 gas pumps and will bring 35 to 40 job openings to Eldersburg, according to Varga.
