Safeway on 17th Street NW is getting another renovation–and a 10 pm closing time from now until November.

Sources say that with the closing of the Express Safeway on 19th Street a couple of months ago, the store has seen its customer base grow– and demand better and different products. Shelves are being moved and certain products relocated.

But, here’s the big news:

  • The produce section will expand.
  • The deli area will have a hot-food bar.
  • There will be self checkout lanes.

Capital Bikeshare Station at Store

A new addition to the sidewalk area in front of the 17th Street Safeway is the Capital Bikeshare station. The program rolled out across the DC metro area on September 20.

  1. This is great news! The produce section could use a pick-me-up. And God knows we need a place that fits between whole paycheck and trader quality.

  2. that place could just FRESH PRODUCE. That would help more than any cosmetic repair!

  3. I welcome better produce, but where are they going to fit this into that already cramped space?
