I am pleased to hear Safeway and Albertsons are joining hands in this great business decision. I know our Alamo Safeway can not get any better than it currently is...I am sure or at least I'm hoping prices will stay as is and maybe drop a little. For me, the selections and quality of products are great at Safeway. This I am hoping will stay the same. Oh yes I do shop at Whole Foods and Trader Joes on occasion...But the majority is at Safeway.

Oh by the way, I am not a shareholder of Safeway or Albertsons...jus a shopper.

Good luck on the merger.

Thanks for listening, Julia Pardini, from Alamo.
