Multiple media outlets reported that the Price Rite Supermarket in Rosedale is closing. The grocery store on Chesaco Avenue is slated to close in October.
Many residents in the area are upset because Price Rite is the closest grocery store in the area.
Councilman Mike Ertel said he will work with the community to addresses the need of a store.
“I was disappointed to hear that Price Rite supermarket will be closing its Rosedale store in October. This is one of the only grocery stores in the area and the community is understandably upset,” Ertel said in a statement.
“I am working with the Olszewski administration’s head of economic development and will be hosting a community meeting with Delegate Carl Jackson, Delegate Nick Allen, Delegate Harry Bhandari, and Senator Kathy Klausmeier to gather input on what the community would like to see at this location.”
Del. Carl Jackson agreed with Ertel’s comments and wants to see another grocery store.
“I am looking forward to working with Baltimore County Councilman Mike Ertel and my District 8 colleagues to not only secure a major grocery store for the shopping center but also to fight to revitalize the shopping center as well (long over due),” Jackson said.
“It is very important to me that the community is involved in this process as well.”
