I have been to the safeway in Bowie twice now. Both times I bought no more than three items. The first time I went to the express lane and still waited in line for about 5 minutes. The second time I went to the shortest lane, and waited (no joke!) for TEN MINUTES!!!! As I looked around me, the other lines seemed to be not moving too. I am not sure what is going on there, but if you don't have a lot of time on your hands to wait in line, don't go there.
