Safeway Opens Three New Stores in Florida

Safeway, one of the nation’s largest grocery retailers, is expanding into Florida for the first time.

There are many locations of Safeway in the West and on the East Coast, but these three new stores in Altamonte Springs, Oakland Park, and Largo, FL, are the first in Florida.  Safeway has many unique and exciting offerings, such as grocery delivery and several money-saving programs.

Having heard much about the new look of Safeway stores, I was very intrigued to visit the store nearest me.  The Altamonte Springs location serves the Orlando area and is located just off of Interstate 4, in close proximity to the Altamonte Mall.

Inside Safeway

The stunning flowers at the entrance were a spectacular introduction to the Safeway produce department.

The produce selection was particularly impressive, including many exotic items such as this dragonfruit.

In addition to the organic produce, there’s an entire section of the store devoted to organic and natural products.

There was a case near the front of the store that contained many varieties of freshly infused waters, perfect for a hot summer day.

Just for U Program

You can enhance your Safeway shopping experience with the Just for U program.  This program is conveniently accessible via the app or the website, and you can use it to find over $300 in weekly savings with digital coupons and personalized deals.

Just for U presents offers based on what you like to buy, so you can save on the groceries you purchase often.  You don’t need to present a card or clip coupons.  Just download the Safeway app for iOS or Android (or visit the website) to get started.

I downloaded the Safeway app and was able to easily make a grocery list by picking items from the Just for U program.  Then, I whipped out my phone in the store, and picked up all the items on my list.

The list was automatically arranged for me according to specific areas of the store, making it a breeze to sweep through aisles gathering everything quickly and efficiently.

It actually made shopping a great deal of fun, and money-saving to boot!

Safeway Grocery Delivery

Finally, an answer to all my prayers!  Grocery delivery is one of those services I’ve dreamed of for years.

Safeway’s grocery delivery program has one-hour delivery windows, which means that you don’t have to sit around all day waiting for your delivery.  Their delivery trucks are equipped with frozen compartments and refrigerated compartments so that everything stays at the right temperature.

Plus, the “Shop By History” allows you to easily purchase items that you’ve purchased before.

The best part is that if you’re a new customer, you get free delivery on your first order!

Safeway Gas Rewards

As all that weren’t enough, Safeway also offers a gas rewards program in conjunction with participating Chevron stations.  I got to “test drive” it, so to speak!

You can redeem up to $0.20 per gallon in rewards when you fill up at your local Chevron, and all you have to do is sign up at Safeway.com or download the Safeway app.
