Resources for Crofton Newbies

Sold sign‘Just bought a Crofton home, settlement is over, the moving truck has come and gone…  now what?

Unpacking and putting things away seems like a good place to start, but procrastination rears its ugly head…  So you’re off to the store – ‘gotta find some new ways to organize your clutter.  If you don’t do it when you move in and put things away, when will you?

If only there were a Container Store nearby, but there’s not.  Target, Home Goods and K-Mart are probably your best bet unless you’re military and have access to shopping at Fort George G. Meade, the USNA, or Andrews AFB. 

Target (Bowie) – 4600 Mitchellville Rd., Bowie 20716.  Go South on Rt. 3 past Rt. 50; turn right at the next traffic light; go to the end and turn right again; Target will be on the left at the end. 

Home Goods (Gambrills) – 2618 Chapel Lake Dr., Gambrills, 21054.  Go North on Rt. 3 ’til you see Villages at Waugh Chapel on the left; Home Goods is nearly straight ahead, at the end of the road.

K-Mart (Crofton) – 1647 Crofton Center, Crofton 21114.  At the intersection of Rt. 3 and Rt. 424.

You may be looking for more heavy-duty storage and organization options – Lowe’s and Home Depot are not far.  Go South on Rt. 3 past Rt. 50; You’ll see Home Depot on the left at the entrance to the Bowie Baysox Stadium, and about a block further, you’ll see Lowe’s on the right. 

Another Home Depot is located on Rt. 450, going East from Crofton, shortly before you reach Annapolis Mall.  By the way, if you need electronics for your new home, there’s a Best Buy on the opposite side of Route 450 from Home Depot.

If you get the urge to pick up some accessories for your new home, you’ll find a Pier One in two of these locations – in the same shopping center as Home Goods and the same shopping center as Target. 

In fact, there’s a Haverty’s Furniture in Bowie, located between Target and Pier One, if you need (or want) some furniture.  If a new bed is on your shopping list, there are a number of mattress stores – it’s hard to go anywhere without passing one.

If you’re new to the Crofton area, feel free to contact me with questions about other resources in the area.  After helping my daughter move into a new home in July, I’m very familiar with the trials and tribulations a brand new homeowner faces when they start unpacking and trying to get settled.
