I really love Safeway on Cornell Road in Portland. I don't know the name of the store manager, but I sure do recognize him because he's constantly circulating the store, checking to make sure everything is going well and everyone can find things.
I am usually asked 1 or 2 times if I am finding everything I need, and if I am not, someone will usually walk me to where it is.
The cashiers are all so friendly and helpful. I am always thanked BY NAME after I have purchased my groceries, and today, one of the baggers passed me on the way out and also used my name and said, "See you next time". Wow! I was impressed. Several baggers and checkers have been there for years and have such wonderful customer service skills, I feel like I'm their most important customer.
It's clear that the people who work at Safeway really enjoy their jobs, (or else they are putting on a very convincing show!!) and it makes shopping there a pleasure.
