Safeway will close its Petworth Safeway at 3830 Georgia Ave. NW on Saturday, Sept. 8 at 6 p.m. as the grocery chain begins preparations to construct a new, state-of-the-art facility that will anchor a mixed-use development featuring five floors of residential dwellings at the corner of Georgia and Randolph Sts. The new store is scheduled to open in early summer of 2014.
Once completed, the new 62,000 square-foot facility will be the third largest Safeway in the city and replace the current store, which was built in 1963 and measures 21,250 square feet. The project will feature a full-service Safeway at street level with below grade parking on the first level solely for Safeway shoppers and the second level dedicated exclusively for the building’s residents.
The company will operate a temporary pharmacy in a storefront location at 4034 Georgia Ave. NW for the duration of the construction period beginning Monday, Sept. 10 at 9 a.m. The pharmacy will operated from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. no Sundays. In addition, Safeway will offer free shuttle bus service to its Piney Branch Rd. store three times a week for Petworth customers in need of transportation during the construction period. The service will begin on Monday, Sept. 10 running three days each week (Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays) between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and departing from the temporary pharmacy address. The bus will make return trips to the pharmacy every 30 minutes.
Safeway’s Petworth customers (those residing in specific ZIP codes surrounding the store) can also take advantage of the grocer’s Safeway.com online, home delivery service which will be offering free delivery for purchases of $75 or more (a savings of up to $12.95) until the new store is opened.
