    Did they change the Safeway Pharmacy opening date from Monday? The sign I saw on the door on Friday said they would be closed Sunday and reopen on Monday in the trailer.

      Sara from Safeway (who’s long been the point person on the project) had told us that the store would close 8/21, the pharmacy would open 8/22. But if you saw a sign, it must have changed from the original plan. – TR

    Zippy’s Giant Burgers is certainly beloved and renowned, but to call it “legendary” after 2 years in business (and no end in sight) is something of a stretch.

    Yup despite what Safeway said and what they told me when I called earlier this week to double check they were not open today, and when I went by there today, it was closed and I was told I was out of luck to get medication picked up today. Looks like I get to spend the afternoon getting a hold of my dr to have them call it somewhere else–and the last time I use Safeway.

    I love that people knew that Safeway was closing yesterday, and for some reason, they waited until today to fill/need their prescription. Why didn’t you pick it up yesterday, or make arrangements for tomorrow?? Now your totally writing Safeway off for good? Awesome.

    Actually Ed, everything leading up to this week (including a call to SAFEWAY earlier this week) indicated that they were going to be open today. Its the straw that broke the camel’s back for customer service issues there. If my insurance would let me pick it up before the day of, I’d love to, but I’m not going to knock actually having insurance.

Sorry, comment time is over.
