from the eckington listserv on thursday, the story is that the edgewood store, located in the rhode island avenue center at 514 rhode island avenue, NE, is being skipped over for updates that other stores, like the one on 17th street in dupont and the social safeway in georgetown have received or are slated to receive in the near future. here's the message:
Good Afternoon Everyone,i'm not sure how true this is (i haven't taken the time to write and find out from safeway corporate), but it's true that the store could use a bit of an update. it's not a bad safeway (i have gone there for groceries many times), but it just can't stack up to the new one in the mount vernon triangle these days.
Safeway Rhode Island Avenue NE, Store # 0271, Div.# 35 needs our support in a major way. Out of the 17 Safeway's in the District of Columbia, somehow we have been passed up once again for renovation. As the community came together with CM Harry Thomas, Jr & Mayor Fenty this month which was beautiful! We need the same for our community grocery store. Safeway Corp. requires written feedback via comment cards, letters and/or on-line responses. Safeway comment cards are available at the customer service desk & Safeway.com. Please lets come together for another great cause, OURSELVES!
Please forward all written feedback to:
Eastern Division President

Tempe, AZ 85282-9969
go ahead and let safeway know that all parts of the city deserve great stores, not just the northwest part of the city.
