Safeway to Test New Format

Pleasanton, Calif. Safeway CEO Steve Burd confirmed on Thursday that it plans to test a new, smaller store format this year. The move comes as another smaller grocery-store concept, Tesco’s new Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market, expands in Safeway’s home state of California.

Safeway is expected to open the first stores somewhere in Northern California, near its corporate home.
