Loyal customer saddened by the loss of Safeway

I was the very first customer all those years ago and had a few adventures with you.

I am so sad and so sorry to lose you after 30-plus years of shopping at Safeway. I was the very first customer all those years ago and had a few adventures with you. Once, through a jumble of circumstances, I arrived home (45 kilometres away) without my several bags of groceries. My car was loaded with other things and I thought that it included my groceries, but I had left them in the cart.

“No problem,” they said, “we’ll replace them all.” Someone had taken them from the abandoned cart.

Another time, helping an elderly lady to the pharmacy, my keys were locked in the car. “No problem,” they said, “we’ll sort it out for you.” Unfailing helpfulness and smiles of welcome made shopping there a pleasure. It is really hard to say goodbye to the whole crew. I felt they had become my friends. God bless you all and good luck go with you.
