    Good people watching. Occasional shoplifter getting busted, men in high heels, and if you're lucky a full on brawl for a $3 bottle of wine

    Friendliest most professional checkers and baggers Ive ever ran into, at least all the young black ladies are! Entire rest of the staff is typical Safeway quality Ive come to expect (miserable).

    Pros: there's a Wells Fargo inside, plenty of parking. Cons: there is always some crazy ass stuff going on here with the crazy ass people who gather here.

    This Safeway has an awesome ethnic food selection. Next time, send a TaskRabbit to get those hard-to-find ingredients!

    They always have Aussie Bites and killer oatmeal cookies in the smallest organic section possible.

    Be glad you're not from the UK. This is generally the quietest and calmest you can expect such a store to be, at any hour over there!

    Don't bother with the self checkout machines - if you need assistance (buying alcohol, or the machine complaining about something) it takes ages for anyone to show up.

    Why do they bother with a sandwich counter if they only staff it with 1 person and turn out 1 sandwich every 15 min? Can't be profitable...

    Go elsewhere. Local. Smaller. This is the worst grocery store I've ever seen. From product quality, to availability, customer service, aisle design, layout, speed of checkout, and lighting. Terrible.
