Safeway in Santa Cruz-big bucks for great locations- (I must say the employees are exceptional. )But the powers that be know they've got all the tourists and that's big bucks. Poor quality food in every section, poor selection, the store is set up to force shoppers to back- track,thus impulse shop more. Deli is like an afterthought- trays of precut drying meat & cheese that they grab w plastic- gloved hands. That's after waiting 5-10 min. for some unskilled employee who is not allowed to use the slicing machine. Let's not overlook the 1/2 price section - nice idea if you do it w good intention, but some of that stuff is downright scarey! There are homeless people sitting right outside your doors,and you'd rather make 20 cents on a dented box of Cheerios. FOR SHAME! Well, this is America at its peak of maggotry.
