A spokesman for Weis Markets said Thursday that the company plans to invest "several million dollars" - and employ as many as 150 people - as it refurbishes and moves into the former Superfresh space at Towson Place shopping center. Fifth District County Councilman David Marks announced on Thursday that Weis had struck a deal to move into the space, which has been vacant since Superfresh closed in summer 2011. "I am very familiar with Weis Markets from its Perry Hall stores," Marks said in an email to the Towson Times . "Weis Markets is a quality supermarket, and I think many people in Parkville, Loch Raven and Towson will consider shopping there.

Construction on the Towson "Bike Beltway", which uses a set of bike lanes and signage to demarcate the 4.2 miles of roads around downtown Towson, will begin this year and should be completed by June, according to a county public works official. Stephen Weber, chief of Baltimore County's Division of Traffic Engineering said Tuesday after a meeting of the Baltimore County Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee that the contract for the work was signed last month. The Maryland Bikeways Program gave Baltimore County a $100,000 grant - with a commitment by the county to match 20 percent of that - in July 2012.

A labor protest outside the Walmart in Towson went forward peacefully Friday, despite a court order that barred demonstrators from trespassing on the retail giant's properties in Maryland. The two-hour demonstration, which drew about 60 people, was one of hundreds nationwide planned for Black Friday, one of the busiest shopping days of the year. Protesters also went to the Walmart in Arbutus. In Towson, protesters marched on the sidewalk along Joppa Road outside Towson Place rather than entering the shopping center property.

When Kevin Luskin decided to fill a vast, long-vacant spot in a shopping center he owns in Towson, he envisioned a "category killer" store that would specialize in sofas and other seating - a store that would defy customers to leave without finding what they wanted. Luskin and his brother, Cary, opened the Sofa Store in April in a retail center that was once the site of a Luskins, the now-defunct TV and appliance chain founded by their father, Jack Luskin, who is now retired. The 50,000-square-foot showroom on Cromwell Bridge Road is filled with sofas, recliners and home accessories, and offers hundreds of options in fabric and design.

Filene's Basement Corp., the nearly century-old institution where shoppers have been known to change in the aisles to nab a discount on designer goods, is opening a store in Towson next month. The Woburn, Mass.-based company is moving into a 40,000-square-foot space that was formerly home to DSW Shoe Warehouse at Towson Place Shopping Center. The store is scheduled to open the last week of March at the shopping complex at Putty Hill Avenue and Goucher Boulevard. The move is part of an expansion plan by the 21-store retailer as it seeks to rebuild after a 1999 bankruptcy reorganization that shuttered 35 of its stores.
