Sound Off: What Businesses Should Fill Robinson Crossing?

Severna Park Patch readers spoke up on what businesses they would like to see come to Robinson Crossing.

A few weeks ago, Severna Park Patch asked readers what businesses they would like to see fill two vacant storefronts in Robinson Crossing.

Inside the Robinson Crossing shopping center, next to the Dollar Tree, are two vacant spaces side-by-side. One of the empty storefronts was once home to Fantastic Sam's hair salon, which closed its doors in the fall.

Readers commented on Patch's article on its Facebook Page about some of the businesses they would like to see in Severna Park.

Here's a roundup of what they had to say.

  • Alison M: Pig Tails and Crew Cuts or Firehouse Subs
  • W. L.: Scrapbooking Store
  • SBar: Maybe a shoe store so we don't have to go to Annapolis for kids cleats? How about a good deli? Maybe a general store for a newspaper? Not a chain store.
  • BN: I would love to see a Capriotti's Sandwich Shop here in Severna Park. Best turkey sub I have ever had.
  • Julie Shay: An old-fashioned candy shop with a counter, milk shakes, etc., maybe simple sandwiches, baked goods and NY Style bagels. Great for big kids after school, and families and nostalgic adults.
  • Paul Kriewald: a locally owned coffee/pastry/bagel place like the old bagel one next to Annapolis Seafood.
  • Holly Grell: Trader Joes!
  • Jessica Schulman Farrar: Casual, but TASTY dinner locale. not a bar or chain food. OR Old Navy - I want them back!
  • Melissa Berg Snyder: Trader Joes I wish! I second the bagel place.
  • Krista Sampson Vernon: Tech lab photo store

A decent clean Laundromat, drycleaner.

It would be handy if that shopping center had a liquor store.

A scrapbooking store would be great since Great Scraps has recently closed and there aren't any other good privately owned scrapbook stores around. I also like the idea of an old-fashioned candy shop with a counter, milk shakes, etc., with simple sandwiches and baked goods.

A small movie house, or a book store with author talks, etc. Hard to find a book in Severna Park.

we need a West Marine.... how did we lose them?

My only comment is it has to be different and supportable by customers. If we already have sub or bagel shops inSP then why over saturate the market with another destined to fail.

Trader Joes!! A good healthy restaurant would be fabulous. No chains.
