“Gone but never forgotten”

ooh! the banter...

If an alien landed on our soil, what would he make of our shopping habits? After noting our tendency to build huge, bland, monolithic churches to consumerism on every spare bit of land and then rush frantically to park as near to the doors as possible – would he be further surprised to hear...

“Shop and Great”

published 11/03/2001

Easy, quick

None

Having read several opinions that 'dis' the Safeway 'Shop and Go' scheme I felt that I had to add my opinion to the ranks. This system is great, no reservations on my part at all. I have purchased my boxes, which were half price at the time, as I joined when my nearest shop first started the...

“the only 'safeway' to shop”

published 09/09/2001

Good Offers

No reward scheme

Ok, Yes Yes I am trying to get my name known for always writing Ops on supermarkets ;) Safeways is another local supermarket of mine and when they had the Safeways Reward card I used to shop there quite a lot. They got rid of the cards though recentley in favour of reduced goods that change every...

“Convenience at a price”

published 28/09/2002

Locality

Expensive and limited range

Before I start, I would like to say that I am an Asda fan, but as Safeway have a store right next to my house, I find myself in there a couple of times a week picking up the odd item, and to be honest, I can only afford to pick up the odd item, because excluding their weekly special deals (which...

Satisfactory

Some great offers, good product range

Queuing times are outrageous

Okay, I'll admit it. I look forward to having that promotional leaflet slip through the door. You know the one, offering you four breasts for the price of two (of course I'm talking chicken) and ridiculously cheap sanitary protection that you didn't even know you, or your boyfriend, needed. I...

“Safeways - Cheap Beer”

published 06/09/2001

The weekly offers

Day to day prices are higher than average

I live in an area where there are four Safeways supermarkets within a few miles of each other. There are also the extra choice of a couple of Asda's, Morrisons plus a couple of cash and carries for those lucky enough to have business credentials. Safeways is not my first choice for the weekly...

The nearest supermarket to my home address is "Safeway". Nearest that is, it is 6.5 miles away from my home address. Other supermarkets are 18 miles or 31 miles, so for arguments sake we will say that "Safeway" is the nearest. I don't live on a remote island or anything like it, Glasgow is a 1...

Ooh, the bargains to be had

Looking a bit dated, 'pooey' salad

There are some perks to my job, not many, but some. Often the best comes with ‘desensitisation’ work, that is helping people overcome their anxieties by gradual exposure to their problems, in my line of work usually the community.. This could be going to the supermarket, café, using the bus or...

“Supplies for students”

published 26/02/2001

Good range, price and quality

Some things can get sold out too fast

Well, our local Safeway is closed for 3 weeks and I'm beginning to appreciate what we had now that it's gone. We still have an Iceland, but there's just so many things you can get at Safeway that you can't elsewhere. Sure they've laid on a shuttle-bus service to the nearest other branch, but it'd...

“End of the 'wavey' Line.”

published 03/02/2004

Most stuff

Grubby, will soon be gone

We have never been regular shoppers at Safeway’s, apart from the year we lived in a ghost town in Wales when I was a lot younger, where Safeway was the only shop, sorry, the only building around. This is mainly because our nearest store is not as close as Sainsbury’s, Asda and Tesco etc. However...

Free parking, friendly atmosphere

Prices are more expensive than Tesco

ORIGINALLY WRITTEN November 2000 When I was working in Hull from 1994 to 1996 I used to shop regularly at Safeway after work. The stores have always been well laid out. There is a good range of food products on offer. Non-food items such as plants, kitchen utensils, batteries are also available...

Good offers on products you actually want

poor car park layout

Safeway supermarkets seem to be trying to brighten up their image and project themselves back onto the stage as serious players in the supermarket game. Once the bastion of all that was bad with cheap and cheerful inner-city supermarkets now Safeway is presenting a more upmarket image. I have a...

“Way to go Safeway”

published 09/12/2001

Good shop

A bit expensive

On Thursday last week, I went to my local Safeway [SF from now] to buy a simple selection of bread and milk and ended up with my parents in Café Fresco [yay!] at my local Safeway store. Before I tell you all the gory details of my experience in the rather naff supermarket café [Dale Winton would...

I have a confession to make. All of these months I have been posing as a Ciao-er, for the last two of them I have been working for…er…god, this is difficult you know…I will say it…. I WORK FOR SAFEWAY. I’m glad I’ve got that off my chest now. I am an employee...

My rucksack is stuffed to bursting and as I shoulder the massive burden of Sunday shopping and curse myself for not remembering to wear gloves to stop the carrier bag handles (garrotte wire) from cutting off the circulation to my fingers and look like some kind of crazed asthmatic turtle.
