Customers coming out of the Woodridge Safeway last Saturday were asked where they will shop if their Safeway closes. Matthew Jackson, 29, 1530 Rhode Island Ave. NE: "It will be difficult for me because it's close to where I live in the neighborhood. It's going to cause a lot of hardship for a lot of people because it's convenient. I guess I'll have to go to the Giant out here at Queenstown. It's going to burn up a lot of gas." Craig O'Connor, 57, 1313 Adams St. NE: "This is crazy, I guess I'll go to the nearest place I can go. Maybe a neighborhood market. What are you going to do about the elderly? Where are they going to shop?" Anna Gaines, 75, 1525 Downing Pl. NE: "I don't know where I'll go. I guess I'll have to go into the Maryland suburbs because there's nothing else around here. Usually we come here all the time. We're going to miss it." James Mayfield, 14, 2404 21st Pl. NE: "It's going to be a hassle. It's more convenient where it is now. If it closes, we'll have to go all the way to the Big V down by Brentwood." Betty Gladden, 39, 3611 18th St. NE: "I generally do my shopping at the Michigan Avenue store because it's larger. But this store is convenient because it's only a block away. I can walk up the hill and it's nice exercise." Owen F. Marsh, 66, 3216 22nd St. NE: "It will affect me in some ways because I live on 22nd Street and I can walk down here. But I have my car and I can go to the one on Michigan Avenue. But I hope they don't close it." Emma Fleming, 59, 3005 Franklin St. NE: "I'll probably have to go to the Michigan Avenue Safeway. I like this Safeway. It will be hard for me and a lot of other people, too. It's near where I live and I come here regularly."
