After just over a year of construction, the new Safeway is set to reopen next Thursday at 8:00 AM. When will it close?
In case you missed it, the new Safeway will be open 24-7-365. Including the pharmacy.
And what better way to send the new store off on its way than an A List gala thrown in its aisles Wednesday night. From the press release:
The opening of the Georgetown “Social” Safeway has people so excited they’ll literally be dancing in the aisles at an exclusive, invitation-only gala on Wednesday, May 5.
Starting at 6:30 p.m., the private party inside the store, located at 1855 Wisconsin Avenue NW, will feature musical entertainment by the Eric Felten Jazz Orchestra and a DJ when the band breaks. Guests will be treated to a variety of wines and gourmet goodies throughout the store, including some sampled by White House Chef Sam Kass in the produce section.
Surely it will be the most elegant gala held in a supermarket the entire season.
