Sheaffer's Food Mart

Garner Brothers' Store

WJ Dent & Sons


Welcome to WJ Dent & Sons!  We are located in Tall Timbers, MD.  The store began operations in 1927 as Bailey's Store and has been owned by several families including the Bailey's, the Garner's, and the Sheaffer's.  Currently the store is owned and operated by the Dent Family.


The store features Andy's Butcher Shop and Deli and Chief's - Your Neighborhood Bar.  The deli features Andy's famous Southern Maryland Stuffed Ham.  Andy has been serving Tall Timbers and the surrounding communities for over 35 years.  We offer quality meats, package goods, produce, J O crab seasoning, dairy, as well as, beer, wine and liquor.  Save time and stop by your local market rather than driving back into town.


When William J "Chief" Dent retired from the US Navy in 1964, he began working for John Sheaffer.  In 1978, Chief, along with his wife, Jo, purchased the store from Grace and John Sheaffer.  In March 2010, Chief passed away and the Dent bothers, David and Andy carried on the traditions.  Now David and the 3rd generation of Dents continue the legacy of this quaint country store. Your neighborhood Market and Bar, since 1927.
