Nordstrom Overhead Paging

I’ve noticed that a few Nordstrom’s in the Chicago area have switched their Legacy microphone overhead paging over to the phone system paging via the Avaya phones. It’s obvious, the music stops, the associate says the announcement and then you hear a telephone system CO disconnect noise when they ha...

Re: Fred Meyer Remodels Continue

I am a huge fan of telephone systems and paging systems in stores. I am curious, Kroger’s owns Marianos here in Chicago and they replaced Roundys rollout of Toshiba digital phones with Cisco IP sets. I see that Fred Meyer is still heavily invested in the ROLM telephone systems. This was a wise inves...

Re: Cisco Phones at Safeway Stores

Thank you for your responses. My real question is the fact that Safeway didn’t take advantage of the CAT 5 at each register and they instead installed Cortelco analog old school telephones at each checkouts using the old phone wiring. I assume they pulled the amphenol cable off the Nortel box and pl...

Cisco Phones at Safeway Stores

Who here is familiar with the telecom at Safeway? They were a huge Nortel client and then recently switched to Cisco. My friend worked for NorCal and showed me a sheet that touted the new Cisco phone system about four years ago, it was to include the then new sleek 7800 series phones and IP phones a...

Re: Safeway 7th Street and McDowell Road Remodel

They really need to do something about that lighting disaster upgrade as part of the remodel. Particularly where the strip lights are right next to what appears to be still-working can lights. The strip lights really cheapen the overall appearance. I am with you on this one. The strip lighting has ...

Re: Camp Fire Destruction

Safeway sure has had some bad luck with fires lately. First the store in Phoenix in July, now this one in Paradise. Was this in the NorCal division? I saw on google that it had a very old decor. Construction wise, I am guessing these grocery buildings in Paradise were not built like our grocery stor...

Re: Safeway lighting disaster comes to the northwest

Got it. Yeah, that tube lighting is a disaster. Dominick's stores seemed to be better-maintained than their Safeway- and VONS-branded counterparts. I think the Dominicks Stores seemed better maintained due to being larger, higher ceilings, etc. Maybe it was also because they were brought onto the L...

Re: Safeway lighting disaster comes to the northwest

Hey guys, I need to check out that Jewel on Southport. It’s interesting to see how Jewel has experimented with lighting in the produce area over the years, in my youth in the early 80s the produce area at our Munster IN store had the same bright 1970s 2x4 recesses lighting as the rest of the store. ...

Re: Safeway lighting disaster comes to the northwest

I am not the biggest fan of how Marianos left the Safeway decor, but my point was to show how well the Roundys team chose to update the lighting compared to what Safeway is currently Doing with the miserable exposed tube lighting in the Safeway stores. There is no rhyme or reason to rhose ugly strip...
