To top it off, I have been solicited in the aisles by people claiming to be in need, and there are clearly people with mental illness and substance abuse issues hanging out in the parking lot making quasi-threatening comments. Tonight a group of people, mostly children with their parent, surrounded me in a shopping aisle and begged for money. They would be referred to as gyspies in Europe, but since we are not there, let's just call it scammers.
I have been shopping here for over 25 years, but have seen it rapidly deteriorate in the past several months. I have never seen a security guard, the solicitors are allowed to remain on premises, and I feel harrassed and unsafe at times. The icing on the cake is having to wait forever in line to be their customer which is an insult. I am switching to Trader Joes, Safeway at Bernal or to the Dublin Safeway, never to return! Heck I'll go to Walmart before I ever shop there again. Having their headquarters here obviously doesnt mean much.
