Future businesses should beware if Safeway comes knocking. Surely their business will be shut down, its only a matter of time. Safeway has no business owning grocery store chains. Can't they find something else to invest in? They have a history of coming in and ruining stores that have been around for many years. Safeway manages to do this in a relatively short amount of time too. Look at Dominicks, it was around between 80 and 90 years. Safeway owned them less than 20.

Safeway's problem is they buy chains and it's their way or the highway. Well, customers left in droves because they wanted to still shop in a Dominick's Genuardi's etc. not a Safeway. Next up, Texas where like Dominick's and Genuardi's, they'll have to sell them piecemeal and dark leases on the others and Randall's like Dominicks, like Genuardi's will disappear.

Randall's / Tom Thumb next? All three of the late 90's acquisitions made by Safeway went sour. Raising prices and reducing employees on the sales floor does not work with these regional grocers who have a loyal following. They were all known for fair prices and great customer service. The loyalty goes away when the prices skyrocket and customer service evaporates.

Marshall Fields was even much more popular here in Chicagoland, and look what happened to it. This is what happens when investors take over a great family-owned entity and mess it up, by lowering standards on products and increasing prices and mistreating its dedicated workforce. Thank You so very kindly for publishing my reply.

Safeway will destroy another banner just like they have Genuardi's which used to be a class operation.

I would think that Bob Mariano would be making a big play for some of the better stores since he knows the market better than most and he needs a store count of 25 or more under his banner to be viable in the market....this would help jump start him on the way...
