Opened in 1962 and on the chopping block in 2007. This Safeway is one of the old school stores left on the west coast.


Word on the street is June 9th will be the last day. Can anyone say Olypia food Co-op? I hope that the Co-op can muster the energy and funds to aquire this location.

    Please let it be a Co-op. I've been dreaming of this for years.

    When I was about 15 I saw a rat inside that Safeway. More recently I noticed that the Safeway-brand box of brownie mix (please don't ask) had "beef tallow" in the ingredients.

    At this stage, an empty store would be an improvement.

    Ah, mistress of the Subspace. Thanks for visiting. Much like the Safeway store I miss you and your wit ;-) Beef tallow? Geez.......

    My wit can still be had at my website, which is an improvement over having it directly from my head. At least the website doesn't occasionally forget to put deodorant on.

    A guy I know used to advocate for the Safeway Corp to abandon the place and hand it over to the Procession of the Species. For free. So we'd have a permanent home. Maybe they've finally decided to play along.
