Not Yet. (But Soon)
Not Yet. (But Soon) is the slogan plastered all over Safeway stores around the valley. The first sign of hard alcohol in local grocery stores was the banner, with the same slogan. Now the shelves are fully stocked, with a cloth covering the goods with the aforementioned slogan. I have to admit, it was a nice sight to see the hard alcohol down that aisle... it's one stop shopping now. As for pricing... will the booze really be cheaper now that it's privatized? That's yet to be known. They have the pricing labels in position, just no prices yet. Alcohol sales at Safeway and other retail stores begin on June 1st.
