People tend to check in during these times:
Depressing and mediocre, but you can, in fact, buy food here.
This Safeway has the longest checkout times, because of less cash registers open. Weekends are the worst time to shop at this store.
Long lines, prepare to wait forever
This is the worst run supermarket in DC. Express line on a Saturday has 20 people on it, and only two cashiers open
Doesn't sell beer. WTF, Safeway?
Dude working register 4 today was so busy judging me he could barely ring up my one item
The lines are very long no matter what time of the day..
Worst Safeway I know. No self check-out and, at best, maybe two cashiers. You will wait forever. Produce is also usually not very good.
One of the most poorly managed supermarkets in NW DC. It's an embarrassment to the community. Long lines, messy and limited in selection compared to other Safeways in the area. Rude staff, too.
Quick tip: don't shop here. Likely you'll be disappointed.
Avoid Bernard's check out line. He's horrific. Terribly rude/cocky and bags poorly
Flowers are delivered on Tuesdays & Fridays.
This is a great Safeway if you like to read magazines--you'll have plenty of time to do so while waiting in line. Avoid at lunchtime, when the kids from GDS descend...
The quality of flowers is quite various....
Plan to wait in line. Rarely use more then one or two of their eight checkout stations.
