Safeway store set to open in Largo
Safeway, a California-based grocery store chain, is breaking into the Florida market this weekend with three new stores.
Safeway, a brand popular on the West Coast and owned by Albertsons Cos., is opening in Largo, Altamonte Springs and Fort Lauderdale in former Albertsons sites.
Tampa Bay's only location will open in Largo Mall at 10500 Ulmerton Road. It will have a pharmacy, deli and pizza bar, the company says. In addition to serving some local products, the Largo store will press and package more than 30 fresh juices daily.
Safeway is known for its one-hour grocery-delivery program. Online deliveries must total at least $49, with a fee of $12.95 if the bill is under $150. The fee drops to $9.95 if the bill is $150 or more. The first delivery is free.
