This morning at 6am, the Southwest Waterfront Safeway opened for official business and marks the first time the neighborhood has had a real grocery store in months. Residents enjoyed a “sneak preview” yesterday from 4pm-8pm and the store was packed with people, music, and samples.

The new store runs about 55,000 square feet, a whopping 20,000 square feet larger than the old Safeway. Local blog, Southwest Quadrant, got a stellar sneak preview early this month and called the new store “gorgeous, basically what you would expect from a new, modern grocery store.”

  1. This is pretty great, but the old store hasn’t been closed for “months”. The old store closed on April 6, although for about 2 weeks before that they had been selling off the remaining inventory.
