The Lotte chain that already operates in Ellicott City will open a new Catonsville grocery in the space being vacated by Toys R' Us, reports Brian Conlin in the Sun.
Obviously, this is farther from Howard County than the Ellicott City store at Rte 40 and Rte 29. But I have to admit that isn't my favorite store. If the new Lotte were larger or more appealing, then it could attract people willing to drive an extra five or 10 minutes. Conlin reports that Lotte hopes to open next summer.
