Has National Harbor Helped Changed The Image of Prince George's County?

Ask drivers from Virginia, who travel into Maryland, and they will tell you it is hard not to notice the beautiful development that overlooks the Potomac River, especially during the evening and night times where the National Harbor is illuminated with bright vibrate colors.  The National Harbor has not only become a destination, located just minutes away from our Nation's capital, but also a symbol of change for a county that has long struggled with attracting large public and private sector employers as well as high to middle-class retail options for its' residents compared to the surrounding counties. 

Excitement Builds with a New Wegman’s Opening in Prince George’s County

With the opening of a Wegman’s in Lanham, Md. Sunday, residents and officials feel that the often disregarded Prince George’s county can show everyone it has the strength to support high-end shopping.

Neighboring Montgomery County boasts numerous high end grocery stores, including five Whole Foods Markets and three Trader Joe's.  Prince George’s County has none.  Most of the time luxury retailers skip over Prince George’s County when it comes to business development like Nordstrom’s and Bloomingdales have in the past. Officials are hoping that the success of the new Wegman’s will change all of that.

Currently, Wegman’s has five Northern Virginia locations and six more are planned for the Maryland region including Germantown.
