Albertsons Banner Safeway Rolls Out Store Renovations and New Locations in the Bay Area
PLEASANTON, CA - All signs point to expansion for Albertsons’ grocery banner Safeway. Last we reported, the chain was relocating a Safeway distribution center from Maryland to Pennsylvania. Now, the banner is continuing its growth streak, announcing multiple store renovations and four new Northern California stores.
“In 2020, Safeway will complete nearly 20 store remodels and four new stores are currently set to open in Northern California,” Wendy Gutshall, Director, Public and Government Affairs for Safeway, said in emailed comments according to news source The Mercury News.
Reportedly, the four new grocery locations will open up in San Jose, expected this summer; Hercules, expected in late 2020; San Francisco, and El Dorado Hills. The massive spat of store renovations is expected to take place throughout the Bay Area.
