After living in Baltimore’s Village of Cross Keys for 30 years, Marjorie Goodman says, she was seriously considering moving out because she felt the community isn’t what it used to be.
But after hearing prospective buyer Arsh Mirmiran outline his vision for revitalizing the community with new apartments, offices, a grocery store and a gym, among other changes, she has decided to stay.
Retail trends may come and go, but in Baltimore’s the Village of Cross Keys, some things have stayed the same. The 54-year-old shopping center has remained a fixture of North Baltimore with loyal customers who come for the unique merchandise, personalized service and walkable, outdoor courtyard with seasonal plants and benches. Anchored by Williams Sonoma and Talbots, the center’s small businesses include the Pied Piper, Store Ltd., Octavia Boutique among other specialty tenants.
The Village of Cross Keys is the perfect spot to support local stores as you kick off your holiday shopping on Nov. 30, also known as Small Business Saturday. Bring the kids to visit Santa and enjoy the carolers and hot cocoa during its Holiday Hoopla. Some of the stores will feature their own celebrations, like the Pied Piper, which will have champagne for the adults and lollipops for the kids along with a festive window display.
