Flier ad: on sale. Opened to prepare and meat smelled bad. One piece had turned partly brown; this was under the info/price tag. Clever, but short sighted.
Packed on 2/23/16 Sell thru 2/25/16 Purchased on 2/25/16 and opened to prepare immediately upon returning from the store, about 8 minutes. This exact same thing happened about 3 weeks ago, when I had guests...
I have been shopping at this safeway since the 1970's, when it was the old store with the great arched wood beams in the ceiling. I have had this sort of problem occurring for about 3-4 years including: unfrozen items out of the freezer, refrozen lousy ice cream, moldy vegetables at same day of purchase or after1-3 days in fridge (esp. broccoli, 'fresh' strawberries, ) apples and lemons developing rot in 1-2 days, watery tasteless shrimp/crablegs, fruits that go from rock hard to immediate center rot (never ripening), rotten watermelons, oranges, etc. I do not blame the person in produce; she is a busy, focused person who takes pride in her work. These problems have to do with extending shelf life... a call by Upper Mgt.This safeway services Manitou Springs, (5, 000 residents) and the west side of Colorado Springs. From this store there are 3 other grocery stores; King Soopers, 7 minutes; Super King Soopers, 9 minutes; Albertsons, 10 minutes. There is also a full sized Walmart 7 minutes away. All of these alternatives are on the west side of Colorado Springs, and both King Soopers and Albertsons are larger stores with more stock and selection.
I have already stopped doing most of my weekly grocery shopping at safeway. Your store is mostly a well stocked 7/11 convince store to me. Heck, I even joined Costco... If you don't want this store to die, I suggest you take action on this growing problem; I don't believe you are unaware of it, just have a look besides crunching numbers. The upside to all of this is that this store would make a great skate rink, the others are 40 minutes away.
