  • You could not conspire to be this disorganized.
  • Bring a book & something for the kids to do while waiting in line. Also expect cashiers to be either pissed off or mentally checked out. Keep expectations lower than normal & u wont be disappointed
  • Why are only 2 check-out lanes, including self-check-out, open? The lines are reminiscent of USSR ar the moment.
  • A.K.A. "short-staffed" Safeway too
  • This is one of the worst safeways I've been in. Overpriced and poorly staffed
  • Long lines, low quality meats and low quality produce. This place is failing as a grocery store
  • The lines here suck.
  • Yep, still sucks!
  • Don't come here on a Sunday or Monday night. Otherwise be prepared for a LONG wait in line.
  • Never expect them to have the type or size of milk you want
  • I have never been in a store where more people were as rude and disaffected. And I mean everyone. Staff and customers. I HATE it here.
  • Now open 24/7
  • After work on a holiday weekend and no carts or baskets and awful customer service to match
  • You haven't true incompetence until you've shopped here.
  • Worst Safeway ever! Rude employees and long lines ALWAYS!
  • My advice: RUN!! Employees are always in the worst mood!!
  • You can still buy Wine on Sundays here!
  • Their employees lack basic customer service skills and act like they could care less in general. The actual supermarket is very nice with great food selections, but too cramped in the aisles.
  • Keep your receipt so the people by the door can scribble on it like TSA agents!
  • Check meat for expiration date, sometimes it is expired or expires that day
