Saturday shopping: Safeway, Friends final day, plus ‘Big Bonanza’

Three quick shopping notes for tomorrow — As announced last month, Saturday is closing day for Admiral Safeway, soon to be torn down for a project centered on a new store almost twice the size of the current one. Safeway has told us the store will be open till midnight tomorrow night. Shoppers are discussing its closeout sales right now in the WSB Forums … Saturday also is the NEW closing day for Friends and Company in The Junction, the rubber stamps/craft store that is consolidating operations at its newer Issaquah location. That’s a few days earlier than first announced. … Tomorrow’s a big day for shopping in The Junction overall, with more than 40 merchants participating in the second annual end-of-summer “Big Bonanza” sale – with discounts and prizes. Here’s the list (which includes WSB sponsors Bin 41, Brunette Mix, Cupcake Royale, Hotwire Online Coffeehouse, and Square One Books).

    With TJ’s slated to open early next Spring I am guessing they will get the new Safeway open on time if not early. Here’s hoping anyways…

    Metro market has always had better fresh product anyways, and I talked to a manager that said all the common items found at other stores have been set to match safeway and QFC prices. And they’re open 24! I didn’t know that!

    I drove by tonight after work, right at midnight, as store was closing; nothing looked different, except letters already removed from building

Sorry, comment time is over.
