Richmond Safeway Remodel: Take Your Virtual Tour Today

Posted By and on Fri, Feb 18, 2011 at 1:08 PM

Generally speaking, residents of the Outer Richmond, which includes your author, have it pretty good. We're close to great parks and beaches, exceptional Chinese food is never more than a few blocks away, and we harbor a dirty little secret: The fog isn't nearly as bad as we like to tell you.

Unfortunately, the Safeway at Fulton and La Playa

cannot be counted among our gems. A flat, unlovely building

surrounded by sprawling parking lots, this place is a throwback to the unattractive supermarkets of the 1970s. It's like a wart on our silky skin.

This could change -- and it won't just take wishful thinking. Safeway is planning to remodel the store, and the grocery chain is holding a public meeting from 7p.m. to 9 p.m. next Thursday at the San Francisco Zoo so neighbors can give their thoughts on the current designs, as reports.

Here is a nifty virtual tour of the store remodel online. You can't taste the produce, but it looks like the proposal could be a marked improvement over what's on the property now.
