People tend to check in during these times:
They CONSTANTLY close the sandwich bar early & CONSTANTLY run out of things everywhere.
There is a self check-out line near Starbucks that tends to not have a line. You won't get a parking validation there though.
The Southwest Safeway
Worst checkout lines in DC. If you're here, you must be desperate. Free underground parking is nice though...
Lines are awful on weeknights.
God awful. Lines are always 15 min wait. Open more registers!!!!!!!!
Be aware of customer service they steal money not small either go for $100
Serving up hate crimes in every aisle!
I've always been scared to buy salad bar & go to a clerk as I thought they'd pack it carelessly. Alas, they truly care to keep it upright. Nice job!
The sandwich station is slow as shit. Budget a minimum of 20 minutes if you would like a cold sandwich. Not nearly enough staffers.
At first glance this looks like a pretty good Safeway. Then you try to function inside and there are alot of questions and frustrations. Shows a poorly managed store.
True story. Tons of cops. Always think you are trying to steal.
Worse deli time EVER... VERY INEFFICIENT.
Service at the deli counter is so freaking slow; but the guys in the meat/fish counter are actually quite helpful
Often disappointing in terms of selection, now & then this store holds surprises, like heirloom tomatoes.
But groceries somewhere else. This is basically a large 7/11.
Nice spot. They have everything in here. Signature soup is delicious.
This is one of the best Safeway's in DC.
This is my fav grocery store and they have an awesome wine collection!
We practically survived off the deli food for 3 days here. Not much else around. Right next to Waterfront SEU Metro!
They are no longer checking receipts at the door.
There was a hot girl in an Italian Stallion t-shirt. I wasn't even mad when the deli messed up my sandwich. Again.
I love the French bread
Signature Cafe lunches are cheap and good!
Careful with disaster planning here. The new Safeway is bigger, which only means more people in line!
Don't even bother trying to order from the deli. There's never anyone back there and if they are there, they ignore you.
Wow. It WAS possible for Southwest to get more gentrified. I miss the old Safeway. It felt like an actual neighborhood supermarket, because it was.
Don't steal!!!! They check every package on the receipt. New store, and the locals are still not trusted
If you're looking for anything organic fresh produce, don't even try here. Horrible produce, shelves empty, lettuce dried out. Gross!
This Safeway rocks now! I won't shop anywhere else.
This Safeway rocks now!
They're checking receipts now so be prepared!
Make sure you check out the weekly circular...this Safeway has awesome sales!
Watch the expiry dates on the products! Very dissapointing. This was a problem with the old Safeway here. I'm dissapointed!
A great improvement from the old safeway at Waterside.
