[ARCHIVED] New MLT Safeway Celebrates Grand Re-Opening

Safeway Manager Presenting $5,000 Check to Food Bank Treasurer

Hundreds of customers, employees and officials from the City of Mountlake Terrace were on hand for the grand re-opening and ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Mountlake Terrace Safeway on Thursday, June 13. The newly remodeled store is located at 4301 212th Street SW where they employ 100 people. The transition is a result of the grocery chain merger between Albertsons and Safeway.

During the ceremony, Store Manager Mike Speed presented a check for $5,000 to the Concern for Neighbors Food Bank in Mountlake Terrace and there were several $300 gift cards and free bags of groceries given away. Mayor Pro Tem Doug McCardle spoke on behalf of the city and welcomed Safeway to our community.

The 50,000 square foot store has a new design with upgraded specialty departments and exciting new features including an expanded produce department with a variety of organic and locally-grown produce and a fresh cut fruit and vegetable center, a deluxe deli, and a full-service enhanced meat and seafood department. Their full-service bakery offers a variety of freshly baked artisan breads, bagels and pastries as well as handcrafted cakes and desserts including custom photo cakes.

Other services include a Starbucks kiosk with an indoor seating area; six check stands and seven self-check lanes; drive up and Go Grocery pickup service; online ordering; and store to door Safeway delivery service. The new Safeway signage was one of the last of the finishing touches to complete the transformation.

“The city is pleased to welcome Safeway to Mountlake Terrace,” stated Community Relations Director Virginia Olsen. “Their remodel looks terrific and we want them to know how much we appreciate their investment in our people and in our community.”
