Wheaton Safeway Preview Party!

Like a zombie rising from the grave, I am resurrecting my long-dormant blog.  What better inspiration to start blogging again than the preview party I just attended at the brand-new Wheaton Safeway!  I live within a few minutes' walk of the store, so I've been anxiously watching the construction progress and waiting for the store to open.  I was happy to get a surprise email invite to the preview party at the store tonite (probably because I'm involved in a county committee).  It was a pretty sweet party, especially considering it was held in a grocery store - complimentary drinks and appetizers spread out around the store, live music (a steel drum band?!), and....(drumroll please) samples of whatever you wanted from their prepared food sections!

As you can see from the photos below, the store is beautiful!  They also were giving away a free bag of groceries to everyone as they left; the last photo below is the swag we got in our bag.  (Apologies for the blurry photos thanks to my iphone camera!)


  1. Nice photojournalism! I look forward to seeing the store in person, eventually.

    Welcome back!

  2. Thanks! Nice to hear from you. Hopefully I can keep my motivation going with some more posts in the near future. As an FYI, the Exchange apartment building is holding an open house on Saturday. Should be an interesting chance to check out the new (pricey!) digs.

  3. Any update on the Royal Mile? We just tried calling and there was no answer...
