The Mount Vernon Triangle Community Improvement District (MVT CID) issued a press release today on the new Safeway opening on Friday September 12th. The City Vista Safeway is store number 2737 and has an official address of 490 L Street NW.
The CityVista Safeway will include some of the company’s latest features such as the first Safeway in the city equipped with a nut bar, wine cellar, and an open-flame hearth oven within the full-service scratch bakery. The hearth oven, where Artisan breads will be baked fresh daily, will be the focal point for the full-service bakery with the nut bar offering a wide selection of warm, ready-to-eat nuts that can be flavored or ground on site to create spreads and peanut butter.
Customers will be able to enjoy the new amenities found in many Safeway stores, such as a Starbucks Coffee bar and Bergmann’s Dry Cleaners, along with the more traditional offerings of a pharmacy, full-service deli, meat counter, floral shop and seafood department.
We reported last week that the store hours will be 5AM-midnight and that Mayor Fenty will attend the ribbon cutting at noon on the day of the grand opening.
