Earlier today Safeway had a VIP event with executives flying in from California. On Thursday there is a RSVP tour with the district manager at 2pm. A pre-opening for the public begins at 4pm and ends at 8pm. The grand opening will be Friday at 8am and Mayor Fenty will arrive at noon for a ribbon cutting.
I’ll be attending the 2pm tour and plan to take plenty of photos. I’ll create a flickr stream and post them Thursday evening.
UPDATE (9/11/2008 10:35am) – PQLiving attended yesterday’s VIP event and has some photos and impressions.
