Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:
- DC Metrocentric checks in with the times and tribulations of Wormley Row.

Safeway recently gave us one less reason to stay loyal during the construction of Social Safeway Mark II. As GM pointed out, Safeway offered an automatic 10% discount to Georgetown residents when they shop at one of Safeway’s other stores. GM naively thought this hardship discount would last during the extent of the construction. He found out last weekend that that’s not the case. Apparently Safeway stopped the discount in July.

Presumably Safeway figures whatever habits Georgetowners will form during the construction have already formed.
