I gotta say that I wasn't all that impressed with Safeway before the recent remodel, but now, it is great! It used to be simply a place to go because it was close, but I really like the way they've updated things and have tried to become more of higher end place. It's nice to have some of the extra's in place. They guys in the meat department, and the cashiers are always so friendly! Actually, they are all really friendly there. Love it!
