The manager should have sent this person home or not allowed them to come to work in the first place. It's seems to be a total lack of consideration for the health and well being of the community in general and the store customers in particular. This happened a couple weeks ago at Whole Foods and most everyone working there got sick. Of course it's hard to know how many other people get sick as a result.

No express lane (20 items or less). Lines 20 people deep. It is my conclusion, based on observations made over a 3 year period, and after expressing and hearing a myriad of complaints directed to the store manager, that they are simply unwilling (not unable) to make any improvements in customer service.<br> + <br> + Again, I have to emphasize that this is (mostly) not a Safeway corporate issue, rather it is the management of this particular store. I feel bad for the staff (who are very nice) and customers. Sadly though, it has come to this: I live less than 2 miles away from the North Davis location. If I want to go to Safeway, I will simply go to the South Davis location. If they are busy, they will open another check stand. The manager will come out and bag (with a smile) if it gets busy. You can use self checkout. Same company, completely different experience.<br> + <br> + My advice is to avoid the North Davis store at all costs. It will take you longer to wait in line (and make you angrier), than it will to go to any other store in town.

They can't figure out how to enter coupons, they don't ring up all your items in one transaction, they mess up the whole transaction and have to redo it, etc. They'll even stop in the middle of checking you out to call a colleague to their checkstand and then chat with them about leaving something for them in the breakroom, a party the last night, or gossip about some other colleague. Really? You have to do that NOW, with a line of 10 people waiting to finally pay for their groceries so they can leave? And all of this dysfunctional shit occurs every fucking time I go in.

With the understanding that we are very privileged in this town to have 2 24 hour stores, it's incredible that in a college town, after 9 PM, they always only have one damn checker available (@ West Covell). Great people working there, just totally under-staffed and under-supported. How many people walk into the store, only to turn right back out and leave after seeing the long line? Wonder how much they lose to other places (like CVS next door), just because they won't keep an additional checker on site between the hours of 9 PM and midnight? Surely the amount would be more than enough to cover the cost of having an extra employee there to help. I see so many people getting so fed up with this @#$%&amp;*, and yet management won't (can't?) do anything. God forbid you ever have to "run to the store for a couple things" after 9 PM... better be prepared to be in line for at least 15-20 minutes. Nothing like angering the customers in your community, just to save $40 or so in salary costs. Save yourself from pain, avoid this store whenever possible... Westlake market is open until 11, and you can get most everything (outside of produce) at the 24 Hr. CVS next door.

The store is terribly stocked, there are never enough checkers, and the "customer service" desk is never, ever staffed. I have to wait ages to return anything, and then I have to go over to the registers and wait in line there too? Ridiculous! With so many bad reviews, I wonder why nothing has changed in the 4.5 years I've lived here.

There are currently tons of high school students and college students graduating. I went to Safeway today morning at 10AM and asked them politely if they could give me one of those huge graduation balloons. One of the three girls there wasn't even interested in helping and just told me that I would have to wait 10min because they had several orders. I agreed to come back and I decided that since their flowers were ugly looking (Looking sort of "about to die", even when we are in an important date where they should have fresh flowers) that I would go to Savemart.<br> + <br> + I had to walk all the way to Savemart and found beautiful Leis, flowers, and a big balloon. I bought this and went back to Safeway for the other balloon, and the girl rudely tells me that I have to wait 20-30min because they ran out of Helium. Seriously, Safeway should hire people who can give GREAT customer service and treat customers politely. She didn't care that I wasted my time WALKING back from Savemart to Safeway, or that I even went to Safeway in the first place. She didn't even apologize, and just had this attitude of "I don't care that you had to wait."<br> + <br> + On top of that, for a time when everyone is graduating, Safeway should be prepared to have enough helium tanks and fresh flowers. 10AM and they ran out of Helium? And the girl didn't know this until the last minute? I could have saved my time and gone to Savemart where they are indeed polite and have fresh flowers as well! This girl should be more considerate of others times considering the fact that I had a graduation ceremony to attend. She should have known what she can offer and what she can't. There are super nice people in Safeway, but this time, it was a HUGE fail. I will NOT be returning here to buy flowers/balloons.

They managed to improve it dramatically, though, and it was perfectly decent for most of the time I was living nearby. Over the past couple of months, though, I've fairly regularly run into grumpy or silent employees, horrible management queue management, and poor stocking. Last week, for example, I was headed to the checkout lines. There were three lanes open, two of which were 15 items or fewer. There was one person being checked out in one of those lines, and the other was wide open. The other lane, with no item limit, had 3 full carts backed up. I asked the checker in the open lane whether she'd take 20ish items. She said no, 15 item limit. I was a little annoyed, since she was just standing around. I got in the back of the normal line, though, and waited my turn. The lazy checker checked out one person then stood around some more, talking with the other 15-item checker who was also freed up. By that time, the line for the one normal lane was a whopping nine people long, all with full carts. They actively turned away 3 other people who asked if they could check out with more than 15 items. Once there were nine people in line, one of them finally said, "I guess I should switch to another lane, huh?"<br> + <br> + Sigh. I guess I just need to make the trek to Nugget. I prefer shopping there anyway, it's just quite a bit farther. --["Users/TomGarberson"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Safewayhttp://daviswiki.org/Safeway2010-07-31 20:50:08snehaltComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Safeway<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 331: </td> <td> Line 331: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-07-31 20:50:08'' [[nbsp]] Just went to the South Safeway second time after 4 years, (I lived somewhere else and was visiting Davis).

That place hurts my brain... as do a great many of the people walking and driving in it. --["Users/TomGarberson"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Safewayhttp://daviswiki.org/Safeway2010-01-18 22:31:19LeeY <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Safeway<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 9: </td> <td> Line 9: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ||&lt;) bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Local Deals'''|| [http://www.bountynsavings.com/category/safeway/ Safeway Deal and Coupon Match-ups]||</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Safewayhttp://daviswiki.org/Safeway2010-01-18 13:22:37LeeY <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Safeway<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 9: </td> <td> Line 9: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ||&lt;) bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Local Deals'''|| [http://www.bountynsavings.com/category/safeway/ Safeway Deal and Coupon Match-ups]||</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Safewayhttp://daviswiki.org/Safeway2010-01-17 18:59:23kikaoComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Safeway<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 301: </td> <td> Line 301: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-01-17 17:59:23'' [[nbsp]] I tend to have bad experiences at the N. Safeway so I prefer the s. safeway. Today was another bad experience at n. safeway, I got home and notice on my receipt that I was charged for "safeway water" that I didn't buy:( and it just wasn't worth the time or gas to drive all the way back to ask for the money. Oh, and this isn't the first time I was charged for an extra item, which gets annoying b/c it adds up $$$. Other times it's short handed staff or bad customer service. Anyone ever noticed the short haired brunett chick who wears the high collar dress shirt (I think she's assistant/manager?) she's kinda snoutty, I notice that everytime I've been in the checkout line with her (trust me I try to avoid her)she doesn't acknowledge me which makes me wounder if she does it to students and people of color. It happens everytime I'm at the checkout line with her, where she would greet the ppl in front of me and thank them, but doesn't acknowledge me not even after I pay she doesn't even say thank you (not that I expect her to, but it's just good customer service)and it happens everytime, which makes me think she's snobbish and provide selective customer service. @ 1st I thought maybe I'm just takin it out of porportion, but no! I've actually said hi to her once at the checkout stand and before she replied, swear to god, she looked me up and down then said hi. This is just one example of the ample times of poor customer service.<br> + <br> + I've been shopping more and more @ the nugget who has superior customer service and honestly the price is comparable. I've been trying not to shop @ safeway b/c I just don't want to support a place of business that treats that customer so poorly. --["Users/kikao"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Safewayhttp://daviswiki.org/Safeway2010-01-16 21:15:27LeeYComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Safeway<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 299: </td> <td> Line 299: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-01-16 20:15:27'' [[nbsp]] Great place to get snacks, and can't beat using coupons for that (I've been getting good at it and gotten much free granola bars these couple weeks). --["Users/LeeY"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Safewayhttp://daviswiki.org/Safeway2010-01-13 21:52:44WilliamLewis(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Safeway<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 298: </td> <td> Line 298: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- The idea is that sometimes when you run a sale, you'll run out of the item that is on sale.
