Safeway / nonavailability of advertised items

1 Wheat Ridge, CO, United States Review updated:

I have avoided Safeway like the plague because of their mis-leading ads. Their standard answer is "oh, but that's not on sale at THIS store", when the ad is in the local newspaper. Slowly I drifted back to Safeway because my bank branch is located in the store. Today I looked over the ads, chose three items, and the clerk said, OH, not at THIS store. Also, for example,
there was an ad for Cantaloupes $1.00. The sign inside the store said $1.88. No explanation. No one cares. The clerk just shrugged his shoulders as in "the hell with you". Never again. I have many alternative places to give my money to. And I won't even buy gas there ever again,
I am one annoyed consumer and I don't need to me annoyed. This is the first time I've ever been annoyed enough to email anyone. And I expect that Safeway will just shrug it off. They deserve to go out of business.

    That is the general attitude of employees at Safeway. The store at Mineral and Broadway is a prime example of poor management. The former assistant mgr. Robert Arrington is incompetent along with the former store mgr. Richard Wiles, both are rude. The new liquor store was nice when it first opened they had competent help who knew their products and could offer good sugestions, but these employees were laid off and now we are stuck with the incompetent manager Tom who can't tell a chardonnay from a pinot gris and couldn't recommend a wine for dinner if it bit him. Congratulations Safeway for ruining a nice liquor store, I'm sure all of the liquor stores in the area that were afraid that Safeway was going to take away their business are relieved to see how you fumbled the ball and actually increased their business. I will never give Safeway another penny!
