Our Task Force wanted you to be aware of rumblings in the business press about investor interest in purchasing Safeway operations. Here is a recent story from Bloomberg news about this.
It is premature to speculate what impact this might have on our local Safeway. Our Task Force reported at last week’s BCA meeting that we have been in communication with Safeway representatives, and that we expect to learn of yet-to-be defined developments in a few weeks.
We will continue to update BCA membership both on this blog and at BCA monthly meetings, and please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
