Grocery shopping gets even better

Grocery shopping for those home-cooked meals this Labor Day weekend couldn't get much better in Pleasanton where nine supermarkets are vying for customers and more are coming. Safeway will open its new Lifestyle supermarket Nov. 17 at Bernal and Valley avenues, next to I-680 and across from the Fairgrounds, adding another store to the Safeway market at Santa Rita Road and Valley. Wal-Mart is seeking a Pleasanton city permit to open one of its new "Neighborhood Market" grocery stores in the vacant 33,000-square-foot supermarket space once occupied by Nob Hill. This week, Santa Cruz-based New Leaf Community Market announced it plans to open its first East Bay store in the long-empty old Romley's supermarket in the Vintage Hills shopping center.
