Cheyenne Safeway to close at the end of this month

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - Safeway announced plans to close its store at 469 Cole Shopping Center at the end of April. "This was a tough decision made after long and careful deliberation," Kris Staaf, Director of Public Affairs Safeway wrote. "We evaluated this store and location for the past few years and determined that we needed to cease operations." Staaf reported that the company is constantly evaluating every aspect of their business and while closing this store was a difficult decision, they are focusing on growing the business and reinvesting these resources into remodeling existing stores in Wyoming. Safeway, which has since merged with Albertson's, intends to make every effort to place the store's employees affected by the closure at other Safeway supermarkets in town. One more Safeway remains on S. Greeley and two Albertson's locations on E. Pershing Blvd., and Yellowstone Rd. *Feature photo: Pitchengine Communities* #shortgo #news
