This is the scene at the Safeway on 7th and Cabrillo. Doesn’t the entrance look like an air traffic control tower?

(Appears as if the windows are cinder blocks, else the place could make a nice in-law apartment, right? A set of stairs or an elevator and you’d be all set.)
I don’t know, maybe the NIMBYs of the Inner Richmond demanded the funky design, or maybe Safeway did it that way thinking it was doing us a favor.
No matter, the NIMBY’s of the East Bay (they’re called Stakeholders* over there, for some reason) seem to consider our Cabrillo Safeway something of a paragon, what with its “state-of-the-art Lifestyle Interior” ‘n stuff.
Now, for some reason, the longest waiting time I’ve ever experienced at a Costco seems to be about the average waiting time at this particular store, don’t know why.
But don’t leave us, Safeway #2646 (the way that Albertsons done.) We still love you no matter how goofy those meddlesome homeowners associations made you look.
If Safeway works on these unannounced inspection violations, it’ll be fine:
019 (CFR) Inadequate/Inaccessible handwashing facilities & supplies
020 (CFR) Improper hot/cold holding temperatures
033 (CFR) Foods not separated or protected
041 (CFR) Foods improperly labeled or misrepresented
042 (CFR) Non Food Contact Surface Unclean
054 (CFR) Floors, Walls, Ceilings Improperly constructed, in disrepair, not clean
056 (CFR) Permit/Inspection Not Posted
062 (CFR) Other – (Specify in report)
That was from a year ago, tho. I’m sure they’ve righted the ship by now.
We Can Only Hope…
