You need to hang out in the suburban Safeways in affluent Lake Oswego, West Linn, and Tualatin. Clean, well-lit stores, wide aisles, sickenly friendly employees who do a better job of making up their sincerity than the Safeway you patronize. I don't know, perhaps it is a conscious corporate strategy.

One thing is the same: disgusting recycling centers.

And one thing I don't know if you've mentioned: THE CARD. If you don't have the card, you get no sale items and pay ridiculously high prices for everything. If you have the card, you are giving Safeway all sorts of information about your shopping habits which I, for one, would prefer they didn't have.

Now Albertson's has joined THE CARD crap. That leaves Zupan's, Wizer's (in Lake Oswego), Haggen (in Tualatin), and who knows what in Portland.
