Very interesting...David merging grabbing Goliath for 9 billion dollars...
I wonder if Steve Burd had this plan in mind when he retired..

I hope this merger is good for Safeway and all their loyal customers..

If not Trader Joe, Whole Foods, Lunardis here we come.

Thanks for taking the time to listen, Julia Pardini

Do yourselves a favor, start shopping at Lunardi's where you can actually get to know your butcher, the fruit and vegetable staff, the onsite bakers, the onsite deli and register staff. Far more friendly than Safeway. And the meat is delivered "hanging" Meaning the beef and pork they get is butchered on site, not at some offsite factory that wraps the stuff in styrofoam and plastic. Y U C K !
Well Julia asks everyone to start thinking, well how about thinking about where you shop.
