This month marked the end of an era for the Church and Market Safeway, a grocery store previously open to the brave, drunk, strung out, and hungry at all hours of night.
According to Hoodline, March 12 was its last day of 24-hour glory. The store now closes from 1:30 a.m. to 5 a.m. Nothing gold can stay.
In fact, the Church and Market Safeway was on of the last holdouts of its 24-hour ilk: Over the past two months, all but one San Francisco 24-hour Safeway has adjusted its hours to close shop at night. So, RIP also to the 24-hour Ocean Beach Safeway, the 24-hour Marina Safeway, and, long live the 7th Avenue Safeway in the Richmond, which a commenter Cubicle Hostage points out remains 24-hours.
