Only 9 more days left! The Safeway in Cherry Creek (at First Ave. & Steele St.) will be closing its doors, after more than 50 years in business.
The grocery store expects to shutter by January 4, 2018. (The store will officially close Saturday, October 28.) Of course, our bargain-hunting team made a personal visit to vet the deals. (However, we often get our best tips from our family of eagle-eyed readers. If you spot any updates about the close-out sale before we do, let us know.) Here’s what we know…
Note: You still have to pay for parking. However, if you can get in and out under an hour, the first hour is FREE.
As of now, its store hours are 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. However, expect the hours to shorten, as the final business day approaches. When in doubt, call ahead at 303-355-5486. It’s always best double-check and avoid any frustration, as well as wasting gas and time.
We confirmed that, for the time being, they are still accepting manufacturer’s coupons. The percentage discount is off the lowest marked price. Right now, the selection is okay — with half the shelves mostly full.
We expect the deals to get really hot in the next week, assuming there’s still some items on the shelves. Remember, this is a small Safeway compared to a standard size store, so the amount of stock is relative.
