Currently there are 46 open positions listed for everything from clerks to managers to cheese specialists. Click here to apply. You have to click on Apply Now, follow the prompts, enter Everett, WA and then select the 7601 address.

A quick look showed painters are busy inside the store and Sara Osborne, a Safeway spokesperson contacted Wednesday told MyEverettNews.com by email…”We do not yet have a date to share on this location. We hope to know more soon.”

    At least something is going in back there. I’m tired of the big bldgs around our area sitting empty. Makes the whole 3 mile radius look Ghetto and abondoned ( K Mart ). Safeway looks like it’s remodeling and updating a few things. Hopefully they can hire security for the parking lot to run off the ” I don’t have gas in my car can I have a few dollars” people. they hired someone at Fred Meyer on Casino for that purpose and it worked

    Hope Safeway learned from their mistakes which are too numerous to list here (as I saw them). But first and foremost they had better train their staff to be nice to customers. And get rid of the ‘buy 10’ of a product to get a sale price! And keep the entrance and parking lot clear of beggars or I won’t be shopping there.

    Be assured that amongst all the layoffs and store closers the EXECUTIVES got their bonuses.

    I’d sure like to know the behind-the-scenes story for what at first glance looks like a comedy. Was there some tax benefit behind this sale? Was the sale a tactic to avoid monopoly laws? Was Haggen really that incompetent?

    • Zach Says:

      The story has been well-documented. The parent company that owns Safeway and Albertson’s offloaded ~150 stores to Haggen, not disclosing how many of the locations were wildly under-performing. Haggen got in over their head trying to manage a business that had increased almost tenfold with many spots being lackluster. They also weren’t the best in marketing their business.

        The sale is well-documented, yes. However, I find it difficult to believe that Haggen paid for these sites essentially sight-unseen and hilarity ensued. Haggen’s business model, as evidenced at the stores it took over here, apparently relies on upper-middle-class customers who value convenient locations while the higher prices keep the Walmart/Grocery Outlet segment away. A cursory trip to any of the local sites would have revealed only Monroe as potentially viable.

        Perhaps Haggen really was that stupid but I’m skeptical.

    A golden opportunity for the chronically homeless to become gainfully employed.

        I hope they clean it up from when it was open before. The staff was unfriendly. You couldn’t get down some rows at all because of people who shopped as a group and held long conversations while blocking aisles with several cars and kids. There were even unsupervised kids dribbling basketballs down the aisles. At least when Haggen took over the shoppers were better behaved. Same staff, unfortunately.
