Exploring Issues in Eldersburg: What Should Replace Kmart?

The announcement of Kmart's closing brings up several questions about the future of Carrolltown Center.

It once was a mall and now it's a shopping center that's often in local headlines.

Carrolltown Center recently had several news worthy changes, including the  and the closings of Peebles and Blockbuster. 

While there isn't any new information on what is going to replace Kmart, or what renovations will be done to the center now that two of the building's anchors are gone, Patch still wants to know what you think should be in its place. 

Is there something that Eldersburg is in desperate need of? What would survive an anchor spot in Carrolltown Center?

I think they should demolish the entire Carrolltown Center site and start from scratch. Carroll County truly needs an up-to-date movie theatre. A moderately priced, "table service" restaurant like Bonefish or Carrabba's would probably do well with the theatre. I like the Trader Joe's idea as well.

I think Black Oak is a horrible company. They also own owings mills mall. They have no idea how to manage anything. My best hope is they sell it off to someone who won't continue to devalue our town! Ironically, someone told me today that 40 of walmarts big-wigs came for a visit. They want to put a super Walmart there. Not sure how I feel about that. At least it's better that what's there now. We need to stop drawing the wrong elements or our safe little town will be lost.

Black Oak did not own Owings Mills Mall. Originally owned by Rouse then sold to GGP. I agree BOA is a large dissappoinment to the area and needs to follow thru with their original promised.

We could use our small movie theatre back, and another place to eat like Olive Garden. Nothing big,. we dont need another Walmart!! . Maybe a Trader Joes or Michaels crafts would be nice. An Outback would also be a nice touch. Lets keep Eldersburg a safe little town!!
