New Safeway in Queen Creek, AZ

Post by rwsandiego » December 4th, 2018, 2:37 pm

Phoenix Business Journal reports that that Safeway is opening a new 63K square foot store in Queen Creek. Queen Creek is in the Southeast Valley area of metro Phoenix. Will have to check the new store out this weekend.

I think it's fairly obvious at this point that the preferred store brand in Arizona at this point is Safeway, but this sounds a lot like a large-format Albertsons in Safeway duds, much like how the Randalls opened in Austin a few years ago was based after Albertsons' classic store layout rather than Safeway's.

It is on the small end of a suburban Jewel, but colossal by Safeway standards.
