The Plaza Tapatia location on South Salisbury Blvd will be torn down and become a new Royal Farm store . The gas station on corner will remain...

I like Royal Farms, but why don't they put prescription drugs on their menu and buy out the pharmacy's. Then they would have every corner and more.

They are going to over saturate themselves. They have one not even two miles away on Snow Hill Road.

Please tell me this is not true and just a rumor. Why would they build right next to a gas station? What a waste of prime real estate that could help build this town instead of turning it into gas station and pharmacy heaven.

They don't need a royal farms! Bring in a restaurant like Cracker Barrel to create more jobs for your college students! You don't need another "beer store" for the college!

It's just putting all the local mom & pop gas stations out of business. It's getting out of hand and I will not support them!

Two new Rofos around Salisbury? Sheesh...I guess they want the South 13 business that Wawa keeps.

Why another royal farms? Why not a crackel barrel, or chic fila.

WE DO NOT NEED ANOTHER ROYAL FARMS

The last thing Salisbury needs is another Royal Farms. Don't get me wrong I like the store, but we have enough of them already.

will be even more of a traffic nightmare in that area

Royal Farms are usually only at lighted intersections. I highly doubt they would put one up without buying the corner gas station as well.

Why when there is two already down this way? Out something else there

This is absolutely not true. At all. Royal Farms requires 80 parking spots in order to build a store... how could that be possible with that lot size? Just a dumb rumor.

Yes I love crackle barrel!!

Isn't there already one a few miles away? Plus a gas station is right there now.

Is Plaza Tapatia moving or are they going out of business?

Not that I'm in favor of this store going up there but my problem with all of these negative remarks is that no one complains when a McDonald's or any other fast food chain swamps the area.

Wheres plaza going??

I worked at Royal Farms many years ago, so it seems nice to see news about them. I moved back to my home state of NY in the fall of 1995 so that tells you how many years ago it was. Maybe 26 or 27 years ago.

They're trying to build over 200 store then they're franchising

This is going to be nice to have a good store down in that area. The city council and mayor are working hard to not have so many empty businesses in the city I think royal farms will not only be good for that area but may also provided jobs for the college students when they graduate I am glad the city of Salisbury is becoming better and alot friendly And along with the addition of the new krisy Kreame we have a alot more jobs coming to the area

Name one Royal Farm that isn't on a corner. Either this story is not true, or be watching for the Exxon on the corner to be gone, too.

Plaza employs more people than the Rofo will, having yet another eyesore gas station will not be good for the area.

You are ignorant!

To the person who just wrote that this is absolutely not true... Ok. Given that I signed the papers finalizing the deal and you have no idea what you're talking about, care to bet some money on this?

Also, in case anyone cares, Plaza isn't closing. Just moving.

Royal Farms is a MD company. The more they expand the better.

Royal Farms sucks, they have no edible deli selections. Their chicken is always undercooked anymore. They're "western fries" never have any coating on them anymore and are never seasoned. Plus always tastes like old oil.

And any of their deli sandwiches are nasty, tiny, etc.

Wawa must do 50 to 100 times the food business of Royal Farms.

Exactly

I am addicted to RoFos fried chicken bacon sandwich.

80 parking spots, really?

Anonymous said...

People your dumb when was the last time you have seen a mom and pop fast station?????? The 80's the gas stations around here are towel head owned and operated come on people

Jeanine Huntington said...

Chic fila is getting ready to open at Salisbury university the end of this month

MarkyMarc413 said...

80 parking spots seems HIGHLY dubious. Just look at the one on South Division, which I thought was going to be TOO SMALL of a space before the started building it, but lo and behold, they fit one there, and with less than 30 parking spots, if I recall correctly.

Wow - what an incoherent, misspelled mess of grammatical errors, ending with a racist slur! How on Earth did this comment get approved?!

Should put a grotto pizza there, a big pizza place like that would take off and it would add to the college nightlife and create jobs for the students as well

Nobody said...

Make it a grotto pizza. It would be an amazing pizza place and would create a great night life for the college scene and would even create jobs for the students

Are there any Mom and Pop gas stations left?

Royal farms has the best fried chicken hands down that I have ever had and it's still good after a couple days in the fridge...

Anonymous said...

Exactly, especially when there are 2 other royal farms within a mile! Markets are being monopolized, we need diversity in this young college town

What happened to authenticity instead of quantity???

Nice story toots, now make me a samich!!!!

Personally, I welcome it and see it as an upgrade to the streetscape. I can't imagine the crappy gas station next to it surviving and predict that royal farms will acquire it or has already.

I would rather it be a Wawa's store...

All owned by foriegners now..who cares.

Big signs at Plaza say they are NOT closing???

Jonathan Taylor said...

it has been an interesting story with this property. I got a call from the owner of plaza on South End after the story went out. It seems they lease the property from another company who from what I could gather hadn't informed them they were trying to see if someone else wanted it. Royal Farms definitely was, and honestly if they could come up with a new agreement to stay there...thats fine with me too

James Casey said...

This is fake, plaza is not closing do not let this FAKE NEWS hurt their business. If you do not believe me please go to store and read the sign on the front door!
