Safeway Launches New Format With State-of-the-Art Facility
WASHINGTON, DC - Shoppers on Capitol Hill will be met with an all-new shopping experience this month as Safeway prepares to open up a new and improved store on August 12. While Safeway has long been a trusted retailer to the market, it’s now gained a competitive advantage with this top-of-the-line launch.
“We are delighted to grand open our beautiful new Capitol Hill grocery store, on the same site where our previous store stood until two years ago,” said Tom Lofland, President of Safeway’s Eastern Division. “This conveniently located neighborhood store will offer many unique features and products. Customers will be sure to enjoy the beautiful, modern design and the wide selection of products, including organic, natural, and healthy goods across all departments. We know the Capitol Hill Safeway will be a wonderful addition to the community.”
As reported by PoPville, the new store will stand at 60,236 square feet and serve a critical region of the state. It is also expected that this opening will kick off an entire month of innovative renovations set to revamp the area’s entire store network, including two other stores in Washington DC, one in Silver Spring, Maryland, and one in Arlington, Virginia.
Matthew Fyre will be the new Store Director following his time managing the chain’s Southwest Waterfront location. The news source noted that part of Safeway’s new format includes updated and expanded natural and organic offerings as well as fresh-forward convenience options. The brand-new produce aislein particular will undergo a major revamp with greater accessibility to fresh-cut and organic produce.
With more than 3,700 new items in total, this state-of-the-art facility may just be a trend-setter for the entire country. Keep reading reports from ANUK as we wait to see how the new store’s features will trickle down.
