What does the new Safeway add to Pleasanton?
Original post made by mystified about the new safeway, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Dec 17, 2011
I went there today (Dec. 17) for the first time. Around 10 am. Pretty empty, especially for the weekend before Christmas. I didn't see anything different about this safeway than the one on Santa Rita or than the 2 in Dublin. I left empty-handed, decided to do my shopping at Genes, where I know where things are, they have a butcher, and I just felt like being loyal to them. I really can't believe Pleasanton was duped by Safeway (or maybe just the residents were). I don't get the location, or the fact that it doesn't seem to add anything to the town, except some traffic issues. I'm all ears if someone would like to tell me what it does add. I just can't believe this was approved. Who really is benefitting here other than perhaps Safeway (if they ever recover their costs).
