Safeway (Shop)

Community Quote

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 ... Read review

End of the 'wavey' Line.

AdvantagesMost stuff

DisadvantagesGrubby, will soon be gone

"...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 it looks like the Safeway brand is set to soon disappear under the yellow and black of Morrisons after Tesco, the WalMart fuelled Asda and Sainsbury have all had their bids for the chain of about 500 stored disallowed by the Competition Commission. I don’t ..." Read review

Is this really a 'Safe Way' to shop?

AdvantagesOoh, the bargains to be had

DisadvantagesLooking a bit dated, 'pooey' salad

"...amount of time in the Safeway in Fishponds in Bristol. However my service user is now at the point where she can go around the supermarket on her own and I can go and sit in the café, thus observing Safeway in its entirety. Lord alone knows what the staff think as this big 5’ 8”, bright red haired pierced woman trailed around this little old lady! At any moment I expected the security to come and clap me on the shoulder, accusing me of getting ready ..." Read review

Gone but never forgotten

Advantagesooh! the banter...

Disadvantageswill soon be transformed into an English 'market street'

"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 us debate for hours the virtue of one store over another?

Convenience at a price

AdvantagesLocality

DisadvantagesExpensive and limited range

"...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 I will come to later), Safeway are very very expensive, and the variety of products on offer from the likes of Asda and Tesco just cannot be rivalled by Safeway. Most other stores have a list of a trolley ..." Read review

the SAFEWAY to Shop ... and for FREE if you like

AdvantagesGood offers on products you actually want

Disadvantagespoor 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 Safeway store close to where I work (Barbican) and a new store has opened up where I live in Woking. Safeway's have ditched their loyalty card scheme ..." Read review
