i think this new safeway is a good idea. there's no neighborhood supermarket on the southwest side of town. the closest is raley's across town or the lucky's on west las positas. so this new safeway makes sense geographically.

24-hour grocery sounds convenient. Great location, off freeway. Closer to my neighborhood to get groceries, instead of driving the other side of town.

I have to side with Steve, "o boy another Safeway", why not some thing like whole foods, they actually care what thier customers think. and why is it safeway makes a big donation right when they want to sell their new store smells as bad as the fish at safeway does

Whole Foods is coming to Dublin, doubt they would build one in Pleasanton. Now, I thought Trader Joes was planning to expand, that would be a good place for them. Safeway is ok with me.

This is one of the most ridiculous locations for a Safeway store especially because the place will go downhill because of its close proximety (spelling?) to the freeway. Additionally what about Genes Fine Foods thats pretty damn close isnt it?
Now Ill say that Dublin has a whole lot of stupid ideas but on the Westside (silvergate area) we have many longtime residents like myself who remember the days before there were asian markets and stucco facades on every corner...

Don't miss out on the discussion!
