SALISBURY, Md. – The potential for a Cracker Barrel location at The Centre at Salisbury mall will not happen, according to Salisbury Mayor Jake Day.

In early 2015, renderings put together by Cracker Barrel went to the planning and zoning board in Salisbury. Though the company declined to ever comment publicly that a location was being planned, the city validated that it was indeed a possibility.

In multiple follow-up attempts with Cracker Barrel since that time, the company continued to deny any news regarding the mall location, stating it does not make any announcements until a deal is done.

On Wednesday, Day confirmed the mall location fell through after an anchor store at the mall, operated by Rouse Properties, vetoed the plan.

Day said he was told anchor stores have provisions in their leases with Rouse that allow them to make such vetoes.

As for which anchor store nixed the plans, Day said he was not given that information but was told the decision was made on a national level and that, according to representatives from Cracker Barrel, all local managers were supportive of the chain’s plan.

Cracker Barrel, according to Day, is 100 percent confident it will eventually find a suitable location in Salisbury.
