Safeway Georgetown First Floor Plan

The old Safeway was razed and the new store building has been moved to Wisconsin Avenue making it more pedestrian-friendly. The building is two stories with the Safeway located on the second level. On the ground floor, there are 7,000 s.f. of street shops with entrances on Wisconsin Avenue.


There are two levels of free parking. On the ground floor, the parking is covered by the store, with a second level of parking on a deck at the rear of the store. Store entrances are located on Wisconsin Avenue and from the parking deck.

There is a large seating area with windows looking onto Wisconsin Avenue. During the colder months a fireplace will provide a warm ambiance. In addition to the indoor seating area, an open-air balcony will provide additional seating during warmer weather.

history of Safeway in Georgetown
Safeway has strong roots in the Georgetown community. Safeway began serving Washington DC by acquiring the Sanitary Grocery Company 80 years ago. Safeway operated the Georgetown Sanitary Grocery store before it changed the banner to Safeway. Later, Safeway opened its first store on Wisconsin Avenue near 34th Street. Since then, it has been replaced and enlarged twice to improve the services provided to our customers. As the fourth store in this location, the Georgetown Safeway is the urban supermarket for the 21st Century.


Safeway welcomes the opportunity to provide a newly enhanced store for the community to gather and shop.
