retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Washington Post had a story the other day about supermarkets in Washington, DC, where “sit-down restaurants and bars are as essential as cage-free eggs or gluten-free and dairy-free aisles. Long the preserve of suburban chains, sipping from a glass of wine or beer while browsing the produce section or relaxing with a hard-earned glass of Riesling or stout after picking up ingredients for dinner is becoming more common in an urban setting.”

Indeed, the Post offers its appraisal of the five best supermarket bars: the Streets Market and Cafe located in the NoMa (north of Massachusetts Avenue) neighborhood … the Whole Foods on H Street … Glen’s Garden Market, located on 2001 S St. NW … the Whole Foods on South Capitol Hill … and the Ahold Delhaize-owned Giant at Cathedral Commons.
