Raley’s Still Anchors Lexington Park
In the late 1950s, Bill Raley purchased the Merchandise Mart on Great Mills Road and turned it into Raley’s Sales Center. A few expansions later it was renamed Raley’s Home Furnishings. The business has been in continuous operation at the same spot on Great Mills Road ever since, plus an expansion in the 1970s into Waldorf. It is still family operated, run today by Bill Raley’s daughter Terry Raley who describes some of the history.
