It's not enough that Safeway has run off the competition (e.g. Albertson, Kroger, Ralph's, etc.) now they are gradually replacing the national brands with the Safeway Brand which for the most part is Aweful.
The example: I needed a small jar of Dill relish, went into Safeway and all they had @ 3 locations was their own brand. The relish was far from being "Dill" it was pure "Salty & Sour". I know if you are the only kid on the block, you can do pretty much what you want.
I think this is ashame if Safeway is going to lead the way they need to give the buying public what they want, not what Safeway wants to sell the buying public.
In order to not shop at Safeway I have to drive approx. 20 minutes one way, 20 minutes back + the time going in, paying and getting back in traffic.
Monetary Loss: $3.
