The placard posted outside Brookville for the coming Street Market says:

“A new Retailer’s Class B full service grocery store with a Tasting Permit.”

With hours listed as Sunday through Saturday 7am – 11pm.

Justin notes:

“This is sort of interesting.. Brookville never had a license to sell any sort of alcohol. In fact, 5 years ago the only place to get liquor on the entire block was Cleveland Park Wine & Spirits, and now there are no less than 4 places (Weygandt, Yes!, Walgreens.)”

Ed. Note: Yes! and Walgreens also sell beer and wine, not spirits.

From Trader Joe’s:

“WHAT: On March 30th, Washington D.C.’s fourth and largest Trader Joe’s location will open its doors to customers. The nearly 20,000 square foot store in Union Market will feature 17 cash registers and murals that pay tribute to Union Market, Galluadet University’s Bison mascot, Ivy City and the other D.C. Trader Joe’s locations. Hours of operation for the new store will be from 8am-9pm daily. On opening day, Store Captain Rebekah Eagle, a 12-year veteran of the company, and Crew Members will be on hand to greet and assist customers. The grand opening celebration, complete with live music and food tastings will take place moments before the store officially opens for business.

WHEN: Friday, March 30, 2018
7:55am Ceremony begins

And thanks to a tipster for sending word about a Streets Market and Cafe coming to Noma too. Streets confirms to me they’ll be coming to 51 M Street, NE in the ground floor of the new AVA NoMa apartment building. Updates as they get closer to opening.

Ed. Note: Streets Market opened their first DC location at 14th and Belmont Street, NW back in 2014 and the second at 1221 Massachusetts Avenue, NW back in July. They’ll be opening their 3rd location in the Brookville Supermarket in Cleveland Park.

“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday, upon attempting to pay my Chase credit card bill, I found that there were almost $1500 in charges on my card that I didn’t recognize: three square charges (two $500 charges and one $100 charge) to someone (or some company) called Kasiya Omotosho, an “in-person transaction” labeled “Bronx, NY” for another $100, and a $75 charge to a website called kuuya.com. Chase has since cancelled my card and they’re shipping me a new one, but I’ve only used the card twice in the last week: one was at my place of employment (where I swiped the card myself) and one of those times was this past Sunday at the Giant in Columbia Heights, similar to a story you published about a year ago. [Ed. Note: That incident was at the H Street, NE Giant.] Same as that story, I used cashier checkout and the card had a chip.

I contacted store customer service for the Columbia Heights Giant and they said they weren’t aware of any issues. Has anyone else had these issues recently? Thanks for your help!”

From the owner of Streets Market:

“Streets Market is excited to confirm that we will be coming to Cleveland Park in the next couple of months. We are very eager to be a part of this community, and carry forward the hard work the current family and team have put into Brookville Market over the past few decades. We will give the place a little freshen up, add some variety (conventional, organic, local, kosher, specialty etc), but stay true to our objective of being your local grocery store focused on quality, price, and great customer service. More to come as we get closer to opening.”

Ed. Note: Streets Market opened their first DC location at 14th and Belmont Street, NW back in 2014 and the second at 1221 Massachusetts Avenue, NW back in July.

Big grocery store news via the Cleveland Park Listserv:

“Just heard… Brookville will be closing in a few weeks, for renovation. Several weeks later, they.”

Last week a tipster told me that the whole grocery store was possibly being sold to a “small grocery store chain.” I have no idea if that happened or not but one thing’s for sure – a renovation will be most welcome!! Updates when more is known on the new management.

Here’s to hoping the Meats & Cheeses remain “Fresh”:

From a change.org petition (thanks to those who messaged us):

“Re-Open the Glover Park Whole Foods

It has been almost one year since the Glover Park Whole Foods Market closed to renovate in March 2017 to mitigate a rodent infestation.

For those who do not know, the reason for the now eleven-month closure is due to a legal battle between the Landlord, Wical Limited Partnership (LP), a subsidiary of DC real estate development firm S.C. Herman & Associates, Inc., and the Tenant, Whole Foods Market.The Washington Business Journal provides a good recap of the current legal situation. Read the article here.

To summarize, after gutting the store’s interior to mitigate the rodent issue, Whole Foods wanted (and still wants) to renovate and re-open the store, but the landlord, Wical LP, blocked (and continues to block) Whole Foods market from doing so. From the Washington Business Journal: (more…)

Thanks to Mary for sending. Capitol Hill Corner reported in November:

“Construction will take 24 months. During that time, Safeway will be closed.

The current Safeway will be demolished. The new Safeway will be 60,000 square feet – 10,000 square feet larger than the current store. The developer said that the new store will be “bigger, better, fresher.”

Updates as construction progresses.
