The Comercial Listing Broker describes it this way in the MRIS system:
“The asset at 523 Dale Drive, Silver Spring, Montgomery County, Maryland is a well-located mixed-use corner property in a micro-commercial market that serves local consumers and long-time customers. With ample parking for both retail customers and apartment residents, this asset is conveniently located in an extremely stable neighborhood with near-impossible barriers to entry”“property consists of two leased retail suites and four two-bedroom/one-bath apartments. The retail suites are leased to Ertter’s Market (convenience store) and No.1 Organic Cleaners (dry cleaner). Three of the apartments are currently leased, and the other apartment can be easily leased in the tight rental market of Silver Spring” This building was built in 1938 by Morris Miller of the “DC line” liquor store. Morris Miller started several of these corner grocery stores similar to Ertter’s in NW Washington, DC. back in the 1920’s and 1930’s. Ertter’s was a favorite hangout for Blair High School students.
The General Store is Open for Business and it sure smells good around the corner of Capitol View Avenue and Post Office Road now.
