SAFEWAY TO BUILD 'SUPERSTORE' IN COTTAGE GROVE

 CLACKAMAS, Ore., Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The following was released today by Safeway Inc. (NYSE: SWY):
 Safeway's Senior Vice President Thomas C. Keller made the official announcement! A brand new Safeway store will soon be open to serve the residents and community of Cottage Grove.
 Ground breaking and construction for the newest Safeway store in the state began late last week. An exciting, state-of-the-art Safeway superstore will replace the 36 year old Safeway store, currently operating at 700 Gibbs St. in downtown Cottage Grove.
 Safeway's newest store will be built on a 7.5 acre parcel at the northeast corner of East Main and 16th Street. although final plans are still being developed, Safeway officials have indicated that this store will be over 48,000 square feet in size, literally twice the size of the existing Cottage Grove Safeway.
 The new Safeway will feature many exciting full-service departments, including a Pharmacy, Expanded Deli, Bakery, Floral and Customer Service department, to better serve the community. Approximately 50 new locally filled jobs will be created to staff the facility.
 Safeway's first store in Cottage Grove opened in 1934 at 602 Main St., until it relocated to its current location on Gibbs St. in 1957.
 Safeway's "roots" are in the Pacific Northwest; in fact, the first store to operate under the Safeway banner was in Oregon in 1921. Today, Safeway operates 102 stores in Oregon and southwest Washington and employs over 9,000 employees in this region.
