No retail options exist in Walnut Ridge, but a small cluster of shopping venues congregate along Yellow Springs Road. This retail hub houses the Walnut Ridge Shopping Center and a few groceries stores, such as Food Lion and CVS Pharmacy, where locals head to pick up all the essentials. A second cluster of shops sprouts up along Patrick Street, providing additional opportunities to purchase items from chain grocers and pharmacies. High-end boutiques and fashion retailers remain limited to downtown Frederick, but these unique accessories, antiques and one-of-a-kind closet staples reside less than 5 miles away from Walnut Ridge. Likewise, residents looking to peruse an all-inclusive mall head to the Francis Scott Key Mall.

owner find the accessories, foods or advice they need, locals head to Rick's Fish and Pet Supply. Rick's caters to everything from birds to reptiles to fish and cats
