Old Georgetown Rd. Safeway to close in downtown Bethesda (Photos)
Online reviews of this Safeway have been harsh, and like the Sangamore location, this store apparently hasn't discovered self-checkout machines exist yet. I'm still puzzled as to why Giant and Safeway leave all these empty checkout aisles that are never manned, instead of removing them for more inventory floor space.
Montgomery County has lost more than 2000 retail jobs since the year 2000, according to the Maryland Retailers Association.
