they need to expand and buy more smaller chains and increase total number of stores. they also need to invest and put more $$ invest, remodel and put labor hours back into stores instead of starving them and running current stores into the ground. they need to cut admin and backstage in 1/2. too much main office and corporate wasted $$ like the US government. put the $$ into store level.
They should just get out of the grocery business all together they do not know how to run their stores, but they do know how to run them in the ground.. Example Dominick's Vons.
Performance gaps in Chicago and Texas have been obvious for years. After such a long period one has to wonder whether the brands in question can be resuscitated by Safeway. It seems clear there is a problem with market relevance and responsiveness. Texas in particular is going to get harder, not easier. Safeway can spend its energy more profitably elsewhere.
Under Byrd's command they did very well.
buy some more small chains around the nation. not depending on mostly the western us.bigger stores--dry goods to compete target etc. We have a good name!! Grow!
"Buy small chains around around the U.S.--not depend on the West?"
