McKay’s Food Stores has announced that it will relocate its food store business from its Great Mills, Maryland location to its Leonardtown store located just north of Leonardtown on Rt. 5 and its Hollywood store located on Rt. 245 between Hollywood and Leonardtown, both of which are well equipped to service the food and beverage business from the Great Mills location.
McKay’s has served the local Lexington Park community for more than 45 years and wishes to thank its many customers for their loyalty and patronage and hopes to continue serving our customers at one of the other nearby McKay’s stores.
Over that time chain stores including Safeway, A&P, Grand Union, and Foodtown have all vacated Lexington Park.McKay’s and the Navy Commissary remain the only two grocery stores in business today that were there 45 years ago.McKay’s store on Great Mills Road represents the last major retail investment to take place within the central business district of Lexington Park over the past 20 years.
The food industry today has largely relocated to the California area with stores like Giant and Food Lion which are owned and controlled by foreign country entities, by large box stores like Wal-Mart and BJ’s and by a never ending array of chain restaurants, dollar stores and drug stores.
McKay’s is currently working with several organizations to repurpose its Great Mills facility in order to grow jobs in the community and enhance the Great Mills Road corridor.
McKay’s looks forward to continuing to serve the St. Mary’s and Charles County communities with our three competitive locations and dedicated staff of associates.
