Safeway Inc. Informative - Safeway's Low Price Lies
Safeway's claim of "low prices" is a lie. Pumpkin pie spice: $6.50 at Safeway, $1.99 at Trader Joe's. Sriracha ("rooster") sauce? $2 less at Cost Plus for a 17 oz. bottle. Safeway claims to have low prices, but I believe they gouge consumers on everything but staples. Even with the Safeway Club Card and the endless "special promotions" I believe I end up spending more at Safeway because the prices on things that AREN'T on sale are double or triple what they ought to be. I spent MORE using a $10 off w/ $50 purchase at Safeway than I would have shopping elsewhere.
