If you've gotten coupons in the mail from Safeway this week, it's no secret at all: Safeway, the anchor commercial tenant in the Village at San Antonio is opening to the public Friday morning.
Locals within at least a four-mile radius received an invitation for a sneak peek of the store Thursday afternoon and book full of $2- and $3-off coupons. Patch will have a fuller report of that event later Friday.
The California Street Safeway, just around the corner from the new store, was scheduled to close down Thursday, its long service at its end. Now that the San Antonio Safeway is on line, look to see the downtown Los Altos Safeway close for construction on its expansion in the coming days.
