    Sheesh. I know I bought some ground beef... already cooked and eaten.

    You will be OK. They always err on the safe side. A Tip is to by some quorn (meat substitute) You will not tell the difference between that and ground beef. Quorn last for months in the freezer and is good for spaghetti, burgers etc.

    Is it Safeway's policy for the cashiers to ask every customer for a donation to a charity? They seem to be the only grocery chain to do that.

    Obviously you haven't been to Foodland lately! They are now helping raise funds for HHSSA. Of course, it's for a very good cause & I've already donated but still................

    Safeway's debit/credit machines are set up to ask for the donation AND the cashier also asks. An overkill, imo. The cashier should only ask if someone pays cash. I don't mind the charitable support but I do mind being asked twice. The last time I was at Whole Foods I brought my own bags. The cashier asked if I wanted to donate my bag credit to <forget which charity they were supporting>. I thought this was a great use of that credit and mentioned that to the cashier. It certainly will encourage me to remember to bring my own bags in the future.

    As for the recalled ground beef. About a week prior to the recall I defrosted a package of Safeway GB, baked a casserole using it then froze the casserole in individual servings. Naturally, the GB package ended up in the trash chute and I didn't recall the date on the package. I trashed the casserole deciding it was better to be safe than sorry.

    Yes, it's part of our shopper program to ask every customer for a donation. If they don't, they run the risk of getting written up for not following policy. Most, if not all the cashiers don't like asking customers for donations (especially for the frequent customers).

    Maybe Safeway should "re-think" their policy? I also don't like having the cashier yell out my name when saying thank you. I don't need everyone in the front of the store to know I've just spent way too much $$$ to shop there. I like to shop in a more discrete & incognito sort of way. I understand the psychology behind it, but c'mon here - I'm buying groceries, not asking you for a date

    and PS: I didn't buy any ground beef so I didn't have to throw anything away. Sorry TS that you did all that cooking for naught.

    Will the Safeway on Kapahulu still keep this service?

    Kapahulu Safeway has no plans to remove the self checkout lanes, infact the company was thinking about adding two additional units.

    You will also see the self checkout units at the New Beretania and Ewa stores when they open in January 2012 and November 2012.

    I've shopped at Safeway since I moved to the Windward side 18 years ago. The best thing: short checkout lines. The worst thing: water-logged lettuce.
