here in Snohomish County, just north of Seattle, i gaze upon the wednesday grocery ads for albertson's and safeway. they've quit trying to change up the ads. the front page of 'crazy 8s sale" are identical except for the color scheme as is the regular front page. there are slight differences inside the ads, but i bet if i went to safeway, the albertson's specific items might on sale at safeway and vice versa.

i see an ax, ready to fall on someone. in my neighborhood, albertson's and safeway are literally across the street from each other. how long can this continue?
considering what's happened to Hagen, i wonder.....

i always preferred albertson's meats, but now safeway sells choice too. i liked safeway for primo taglio brand. i can get dietz & watson meats at the safeway deli, and i can get primo taglio at the albertson's deli. but if i had to choose, i choose safeway because their deli still fries up chicke n gizzards and chicken livers on demand.
