i was going to give this place Zero stars, but the employees are nice. No waiting 3 people or less? lol try 10 people or less. i live right by it. I go the 3-4 times per week. Never ever enough checkers open. the last 3 times there were 13 of us in line. this was at 830 pm so maybe they didnt have a full staff, but 830pm? cmon. but thats not even the worst part. Very rarely do they have hand baskets by the door, i usually have to go hunt them down by the register. want to check out yourself? great right? wrong you have to wait 2-5 minuts to find an attendant to give you a bag(s) ..which now cost $0.10. the price is fine, hunting down an attendant along with the other customers trying find the attendant to get a paper bag is a MASSIVE pain. still not the worst part. at least once a month I have to return or throw away something that been opened on the shelf by someone else. The seafood section is slimy looking and smelly. So i stick to the meat. MISTAKE. For the 2nd time in 7 months Ive gotten food poisoning from their meat. I was in mexico for a longer period of time and didnt get food poisoning at all. This last bout of BAD MEAT sent me to Urgent care. The Doc said it was Listeria likely from contaminated meat. Which makes sense cause 2 other people ate the meat with me and got ill as well. Good times. felt like I was going to die. That was the last straw for this place. Other Safeway stores have always been great. Must be the management. Oh and bring change, youre going to have to pay off the numerous homeless people as you make your way from the parking lot to the store..that is IF you can find a parking spot. Whomever manages this lace should ashamed. I never want to see people fired from there jobs, but this is flat out, blatant, flagrant, repeated dereliction of duty. I hope no-one else gets sick. elderly can die from Listeria. birth-defects in pregnant women etc. Im officially done with this store. BEWARE.
Do not go to Safeway Alhambra. I purchase a spinbrush in Safeway a month ago, I notice that the battery drains faster than usual, I found out that theres a leak in the product causing it to get the battery wet. I went to Safeway in Alhambra, I saw a guy caucasion about 6 ft tall, balding, & wearing glasses, hes talkin to a safeway employee. Found out hes the manager. I told him my situation, that I purchase a spinbrush a month ago, I dont have the receipt, and the item is defective. We walk towards the toothbrush isle, he started telling me that he doesnt carry my type of spinbrush (theres another spinbrush in the isle that have a different brush) , I know I purchase the item at Safeway theres only two safeway I go to in midtown sacramento, Alhambra and 19&S. The manager have no customer sevice capability instead of accomodation a long time customer he pretty much told me that he doesnt honor products that are purchase from other safeway. He wont replace my item, he recommended to find a safeway that carry my spinbrush. Now not only he doesn have a customer service, hes also sending me on an errand. I was dissapointed and irate. I have stuff in my cart instead of buying it I decided not to give this particular branch my money. After that scenario I went to Safeway in 19 & S . Went to their customer service dept, spoke to Ja Nava Roya, told her about my spinbrush problem, Fist thing that she said to me "We will replace it" Proceeded to grab a replacement and sent me off with a smile. I would say she gave me AAA service, I porceeded to shop and purchase all my item in 19&S Safeway. Now that I know that there a difference beween Alhambra Safeway and 19&S Safeway I would recomment all shoppers to shop at 19&S Safeway. Do not give Safeway Alhambra your business.
Ordered coffee from very nice Kyle at Starbucks in store. Told him I would be back after checking out my groceries. Went to self checkout. Not working. Went to ONLY checkout lane open. 7 people in line. 3 more people added to line. I finally walked up to checker and asked if he could call for help. He did . No one came. May I point out that this is the time of morning when people are trying to get to work or as in my situation Im here from Spokane, Washington, caring for my friend who is very ill. Thought I could make quick run to store. I stood in that line for over 10 minutes. I went back to checker and asked him to call for help again as there were over 10 people in line now. He did. Some girl finally came up. Instead of picking up pace and getting customers taken care of they bitched back and forth about who was supposed to be there. Why is self checkouts working etc. store has signs hanging everywhere saying "more than 3 people in line we will open up more registers". My suggestion. Pay for employees. Not misleading signs. I will come back for coffee while Im here from the excellent people in your in house Starbucks. My groceries. Im going down the road.
Recently two stalwarts of midtown domestic nightlife have shocked its community by offering one service less. Safeway and Rite Aid will no longer be open 24 hours. Safeway is now closed nightly from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m, Rite Aid 11p.m. to 7a.m. Asked about the reason for this change a Safeway employee said he had no idea. “It comes from on high,” he said, meaning it was a decision made at Safeway Corporate. A security guard working the now uneventful graveyard shift said he believed they made the decision based on all the theft at night. From having had a Safeway store manager as my partner, this author is aware of the difficulties and frustration experienced nightly by employees whose duties include restocking a whole store while also attending to customers using the Safeway method of extra customer service, there will be no regrets about the new hours by those employed there. It was strange to see the doors barred and lights out on a recent attempted store run. As for the stores themselves, theyre pretty good overall.
RUDE STAFFF! TERRIBLE NEVER COMING BACK! I just went here to pick up some french bread and a six pack of beer. First I was passed by the secruity gaurd when I was checking out the cake section. It seemed deliberate but whatever hes walking around doing rounds. Then he followed me around the store with his back turned to me like he was checking out stuff behind me. I havent been followed like that since I was a teenager and never at a grocery store. What did he think I was going to do shove a six pack under my dress? Then I went to self checkout on accident, but I thoughg maybe the guy manning the self checkout could pop in a code for the beer or something. He came up and was extremely rude to me saying that for 3 years now you have not been able to purchase items that require ID at self checkout in a terrible tone implying that I was an idiot and wasting his time. Screw Safeway you are overpriced anyway.
