Country Boy Market Closing in Glenmont, Charleys Philly Steaks Opening in Aspen Hill

Country Boy Market in Glenmont is closing after 68 years in business, according to a post on the outlet’s Facebook page.

A definitive timeline has not been shared, but the Facebook post indicates additional details will be shared soon:

It is with great regret we share that, due to another serious family illness, after 68 years Country Boy Market will be winding down operations and closing at some point in the near future. We do not have a definitive timeline yet and will share additional details as we can, but it has been our honor and distinct pleasure serving and being part of the greater Glenmont community. From our beginning as a produce stand on Georgia Avenue to our location today, we have enjoyed sharing memories with you and your families. Thank you for everything.

Meanwhile, The MoCo Show reports that Charleys Philly Steaks will be opening next to Wingstop at the Aspen Hill Shopping Center.

While studying finance and real estate at Ohio State University in 1986, founder Charley Shin convinced his mother to sell her Japanese/Korean restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, and invest $48,000 in Charley’s Steakery, a 450-square-foot restaurant across from Ohio State’s campus that gained instant traction.

Charley’s Steakery became Charley’s Grilled Subs in 2002, and is now known as Charleys Philly Steaks, which has over 600 restaurants worldwide. Newer locations offer chicken wings and ice cream alongside Philly cheesesteaks, according to The MoCo Show. The chain celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2021.

An opening date for the Aspen Hill location has not been announced. The Source will update as more information becomes available.
