November 21, 1996|By Dan Morse | Dan Morse,SUN STAFF

More stores and restaurants are coming to east Columbia's "power center" shopping areas near the intersection of Route 175 and Snowden River Parkway.

At Snowden Square on Snowden River Parkway, a Men's Wearhouse opened earlier this month and two more businesses -- Tower Federal Credit Union and Bell Atlantic Nynex Mobile -- are scheduled to open before Thanksgiving, said Cole Schnorf, senior vice president of development at Manekin Corp., Snowden Square's developer.

With those two openings, Schnorf said, Snowden Square will be full.

Meanwhile, at the Columbia Crossing power center on Route 175, a Toys "R" Us opened last week and a Dick's Clothing & Sporting Goods is scheduled to open early next year, said Al Scavo of the Rouse Co., Columbia Crossing's developer.

Scavo said four restaurants were expected at Columbia Crossing. The identity of only one restaurant has been announced: The Red River Barbecue and Grill, a Pittsburgh chain.
