After all of those years following Safeway including posts up to Part 74 on the new building it's almost reflexive to post on any news that is Safeway-related. It appears from news reports that Safeway is about to be taken private by Cerberus. The stock has done OK over the last year (NYSE: SWY, low about $22, currently about $37-38), but there must still be some meat on the bone for the private equity guys. There are a couple of PE bloggers who read the Voice--any thoughts?
I'm glad we got the new store done when we did two and half years ago.
