It's almost become a cliche how often Penn Quarter residents talk about the lack of a grocery store. We have a lot in our neighborhood that we are very thankful for, and the Safeway in Mount Vernon Triangle is not far away.
Nonetheless, it seems like a small market would be a great investment in our neighborhood.
Penn Quarter Insider was in National Harbor, Maryland over the weekend and noticed that even there--where there are far fewer condos and a much bigger CVS--there is a small market that has the things you might need to rush out for. And some (high-profit) prepared food items that would be a nice fit for the Penn Quarter lifestyle.
