After Daylight Savings Time was implemented a few weeks ago, the Waterfront Station Safeway resumed its normal hours of operation, from 6am - 11pm, 7 days a week. Back in November, the store closed at 10pm and at the time, it was explained by Craig Muckle, Safeway's Manager of Public Affairs and Government Relations, that the change would be temporary:
Some other things I've noticed during recent visits - the side door next to Starbucks has been fixed and is usable again. Signs are up near that entrance alerting customers to have their receipts ready for checking by the store greeters. Fountains at the metro plaza have been turned back on. Also, the fence around the new patio area of the store has been removed and people are free to walk on the roadway leading to a new garage entrance. (See above photo). However, fences are still up on the SE parcel fronting M Street that will eventually become an office building.
