Safeway's Official Statement

Safeway continues to play an important role in our community, and we appreciate their support to our community.  In response to the tragedy that occurred in Tucson over the weekend, Safeway released an official statement on their website and their Facebook page. 
 
We share the grief and shock that everyone in Tucson and the nation are feeling following this tragic act of violence. Our thoughts and prayers are with Congresswoman Giffords and with each of the victims and their families. Like everyone else, we are struggling to understand this tragedy and are giving all assistance we can to the law enforcement agencies that are investigating.
 
Of course, our Tucson store is closed and will remain closed while we see to the needs of our customers, our employees, law enforcement and the community of Tucson . We have sent grief counselors to the Tucson store to provide emotional support to those affected by this tragedy, and we will continue to look for ways to be of comfort to the many employees, customers and others who are devastated by what has happened.
