The vacant space on 20th and S Streets NW, once occupied by a neighborhood Safeway store, has a new tenant: Glen’s Garden Market. According to a message posted on DupontForum on Tuesday, June 19, CityBiz Real Estate reported that the Chesapeake Bay-area store, specializing in local produce, meats, poultry and dairy products, will take over the lease. There is no word yet on when the store will open.

It’s been almost two years since the locally dubbed “Secret Safeway” closed its doors, making the Safeway store at 17th and Corcoran to closest grocery store for many area residents.

  1. F*^K Yes!

  2. Excellent!!!! Now I won’t ever have to go to the horrible Soviet Safeway again!!! This place is sure to do well. [Truth be known, I do most of my shopping at the Teeter on Kalorama, but that involves a car ride.]

  3. I just hope specializing means has but is not all encompassing. I do like my normal foods – local is great, but I want to still be able to buy all my groceries in one place. Either way, happy to hear.
