It was exactly one year ago yesterday when the Georgetown Metropolitan emerged from its 171 year slumber and restarted publication. 636 articles later, it’s still going strong.
This week in honor of its one year anniversary, the Georgetown Metropolitan will republish the top five most popular posts from the previous year with commentary on the story and what happened afterwards.
Number Five: Details on How to Get Free Safeway Deliveries
Details on How to Get Free Safeway Deliveries
GM told you all about Safeway’s plan to give us free delivery during the construction of Social Safeway Jr. A helpful reader has provided the Georgetown Metropolitan with a little more detail on how exactly to claim that free delivery:
1. Go to Safeway.com
2. Create a New Account
3. Order over $50 worth of groceries
4. When you checkout, use the promotion code “FREE642″
This deal reaches significantly beyond just Georgetown. Anyone in the following zip codes can partake: 20005, 20006, 20007, 20008, 20009, 20010, 20036 & 20037. That’s a huge chunk of NW DC, covering ground from Georgetown all the way over to Dupont, Logan and Columbia Heights. 20008 alone goes from Kalorama all the way up to Friendship Heights.
But there’s one zip code pretty close to Safeway that’s not covered: 20052, otherwise known as the campus of the George Washington University. Ouch. That’s no way to draw students away from Trader Joe’s.
Looks like people like getting a deal. Who knew?
As far as GM knows this deal is still good and will remain in place until the new store opens.
And what about that new store? When is it going to open? According to the original plan it was eleven months from when the old one closed, which was April 26th. That would put the store opening in late March. Here’s what the site looked like yesterday:
Do you think they can go from that to this in four months?
GM sure hopes so. It’ll be great to have a supermarket back in Georgetown.
