“This project is a perfect fit for the Queen Creek and San Tan communities,” said Brian Frakes, Principal, Common Bond Development. “The area is underserved in the grocery category and Safeway is such a natural fit for the neighborhoods of this east valley market.”

Safeway is thrilled to expand its ability to serve the residents of Queen Creek and San Tan.  The new store features a full-service, drive-up pharmacy, Starbucks and seating area, designer floral department, a premier produce department featuring the very best of locally grown fruits and vegetables including a variety of topline organic produce. The meat department affords shoppers an elaborate assortment of fine cut meats, poultry and seafood.  In addition, the store features a world-class expansive wine and craft beer area, along with a full-service sushi counter.

For shoppers who believe in eating dessert first, Safeway’s bakery is a must see and has every item possible when it comes to indulging in something sweet.  Shoppers will not have to compromise with Safeway’s new deli and cheese departments.  Both feature the finest assortment of domestic and international cheeses, meats, salads and sandwiches that money can buy.
