The fact that Safeway accepts Air Miles is almost worth switching for. For the hundreds that you spend on groceries, might as well be rewarded!
This Safeway is nothing special. It's a grocery store, it has food and a pharmacy, no Starbucks inside (which is a good thing about other Safeway locations) and for that it gets 3 stars.
i've been to this safeway only for flowers, which i got because they had a sign outside advertising a sale. the prices were very good indeed, and reasonable quality.
Like all safeways the prices aren't what I'd call competitive but the trade off is better quality produce, meats and people who have a sense of personal space.

I don't usually shop at Safeway but I had to go with my sister as she shops there as I was in an accident and can't drive. I won't shop there ever again as I usually shop at Coop because they take all coupons and I spent 330.00 and they would only take off one 5,00 coupon.

Anyway, there's not really anything else to report on... more
