November’s stories focused on Prices Corner area


Many of Delaware Business Now’s most-read stories in November came out of the Prices Corner area.

Ranking first was news that a restaurant and bank are planned for the former Sears Auto Center in the Prices Corner Shopping Center west of Wilmington. County Land Use documents did not list occupants for the tract. 

Target is rumored to be the top candidate for the adjacent  Sears store site. The company pointed to its website and noted that nothing is listed between now and 2022.

A short hop away from Prices Corner, it was announced that national developer Dermody bought a large chunk of the former GM Boxwood site,  from Newport-based  Harvey Hanna. Harvey, Hanna, will develop a portion of the property.

 Later county Land Use documents revealed that Dermody has submitted plans for a five-story distribution center. 

Another top story was an announcement from Cecil County government on the vexing issue of vehicles avoiding Route 301 tolls. The Delaware Department of Transportation has agreed to pay $1.2 million for roadwork believed to be largely the result of big rigs using Cecil County roads in avoiding the tolls. Coming later are cameras that will snap photos of the semis.

Naturally enough, some Delaware motorists were not happy about seeing a Maryland county get the road funds.
