Port Covington Wal-Mart: A Case Study In Pictures

Port Covington Wal-Mart: A Case Study In Pictures

On Feb. 24, 2010, an article in The Daily Record announced that Wal-Mart was planning to join the 25th Street Station development project in Remington.  Senior manager Rhonda Washington stated that it was “so consistent with where Baltimore is headed as far as the green movement”.  Baltidome visited the existing Wal-Mart shopping center in Port Covington to see how the retailer was fitting into the Cleaner Greener Baltimore initiative.  The following pictures were taken in March 2010.

Former Sam's Club

In 2002, the Port Covington shopping center opened to a “robust welcome” with a Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club and a zoning plan to include Staples, Party City, Modell’s and Dress Barn.  The other stores never moved in and in 2007, Sam’s Club closed. Wal-Mart now sits alone at the end of the peninsula on the abandoned project site.
