The “Safeway Shopping Center” opened at 123 Bowie Rd. In 1966. Originally, the building to the right was a Safeway Super S—an early (and failed) general merchandise and pharmacy concept that closed less than a year later, while the Safeway proper continued to thrive. The building sat empty until 1969, when Dart Drug arrived. Safeway & Dart Drug lasted until 1985, when the grocery store relocated to the then-new Laurel Lakes Centre. The building has since spent time as Village Thrift Store and Office Depot.
