Beginning & End of an Era: Andronico’s to Become Safeway Community Markets
One era has ended and another has begun as Andronico’s Markets shifts ownership and transitions to the Safeway Community Market banner. Safeway has agreed to Maintain employment for all Local 5 members and not impose a probationary period among many other positive items in the buyout agreement. Safeway will also keep many of the niche items and departments Andronico’s has built up over the years which its customer base has become very attached to. The stores will be closed for a brief period to restock and rebanner. Local 5 members can expect to be back in their updated workplace in two to three weeks.
