The new Safeway is a beautiful grocery store with a huge variety of products from the ordinary to the up scale. The deli looks super and this store should be able to compete against Draegers and Andronico's on the high end without any doubt, yet be competitive with the other large chains on everyday goods. The prices are much better than Draegers on baked goods for sure.
However, what about the parking? Both times I visited the lot was full and congested. They have yet to build out the retail section, which is supposed to take another year. With the current parking problems, maybe they should give up on adding the retail and add more parking.
