Any idea when the Trader Joe’s in Glover Park is opening? They seem to be progressing with the construction, but still no official word, it seems. I heard late spring, early summer, but It’s not even one of the Coming Soon stores on their website.” (more…)
Can the Columbia Heights Giant please collect their shopping carts. I see them all over the neighborhood. These are 7 of them lined up on Holmead Place, with more further down the street.”
Are folks noticing more than usual? I thought these carts had the wheels that lock when they leave a certain distance? Are others also noticing more than the usual number of carts?
Ed. Note: Self checkout was 86’d back in August 2016.
I am thrilled to report that the Safeway on  Columbia Road NW has its self checkout lanes back after what feels like ages ago that they were removed. I would think the ridiculously long lines that have been forming every day after work hours helped contribute to the decision to bring them back.”

“I’m writing to let you know that From the Farmer will be resuming regular delivery operations over the next week and your InKind credits will work as they did in the past – for both a la carte and subscription orders!
If your regular delivery day is Thursday or Friday we’ll ‘see’ you this week (5 days from now) and if your regular delivery day is Tuesday or Wednesday we’ll ‘see’ you the following week (week of 2/18)!
Our temporary pause in deliveries allowed us to focus ‘behind the scenes’ on the quality of our product, the selection of produce items in our store, and the consistency of our deliveries. (more…)
