    I shop at the Safeway on College once a week and it definitely has its pros and cons.

    The best thing about this grocery store is that it is so conveniently located. I feel like it's some sort of hub for grocery shoppers in south side Berkeley. It's super easy to get to on the 51 bus even though I drive. It's also open 24 hours.

    And, one time during finals I just did not have time to go shopping so I ordered my groceries online! Sure, the website doesn't offer nearly as much selection as you get in store, but it was good enough for me. The man even carried my groceries up my apartment stairs and set them in front of the door for me. Now that's service! :)

    Unfortunately, I feel like this Safeway is way too small and lacking in offerings for the amount of people who shop here. It's strange to me to find items that I want sold out!!! It's almost like I need to make sure to go early in the day so my favorite items will still be there. There's also no real bakery! This pains me, a girl with an insatiable sweet tooth :).

    Anyhow, I'm definitely spoiled with my Safeway back home. They recently renovated and it has a beautiful interior and it's huge.

    I really hope this Safeway can expand or something even though it would be hugely disruptive for so many customers. I think it'd be worth it!

    A busy location, while this store meets most of my grocery needs, it also has a few detractions.

    The aisles are narrower than most. and there's less space beyond the end caps, making shopping cart movement more of a tight fit.

    The front section of the parking lot narrows, meaning fewer spaces within easy reach of the front doors of the store. The spaces in the side lot fill up quickly during the evening shopping rush.

    The redeeming value of this store is the fact that it is open 24-hours, for those late night shopping runs.

    PROS: Bus & BART close, 24-hours
    CONS: crowded, narrow aisles,
