The New Safeway Store in Bradlee is Gonna Be HUGE!

I was out and about at <a href="https://www.facebook.com/BradleeShoppingCenter">Bradlee Shopping Center</a> last night <a href="http://carlylecommunity.us/2014/03/06/capital-bagel-bakery-bradlee-gone/">on another matter</a> when I stopped and admired the size of the new Lifestyle Safeway going in at <a href="https://www.google.com/maps/@38.827097,-77.089916,3a,75y,1.58h,99.58t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1skivybqTmLgnWdrTwNG112A!2e0!6m1!1e1" target="_blank">3526 King Street in Bradlee</a>. I had seen the renderings on this <a href="http://westendalexandria.patch.com/groups/business-news/p/bradlee-safeway-to-close-july-13" target="_blank">when it was being discussed</a> but, WOW! Here is <a href="https://www.alexandriava.gov/uploadedFiles/planning/info/Bradlee%20SafewayFAQsv1.pdf" target="_blank">a link to some questions about the new store</a> and some renderings of the site can be found at <a href="http://alexandriava.gov/planning/info/default.aspx?id=49466" target="_blank">this link</a> on the City's website.
