Baltimore, MD - Oct. 15, 2021 - Another grocery store is coming to the Greenspring Shopping Center on Nov. 8 as that Shoppers location will be converted to a Safeway supermarket. Safeway will join the grocery stores that have previously occupied the anchor spot at the popular shopping center. Original anchor grocers began with Food Fair, then converted to Pantry Pride, followed by Farm Fresh - Metro Food Market - and Shoppers.
The more considerable loss may be the Shoppers store manager, Mr. Phil Moffit, who has been at that location since he was a night-time stock clerk for Food Fair back in the 1960s.
Safeway has tried to break into the Pikesville marketplace for decades. Beginning with Food Barn on Seven Mile Lane (former Seven Mile Market location), Safeway opened at the former Frankel Cadillac location (present-day Seven Mile Market location). This is Safeway's 3rd try at a Pikesville location in a great spot!
