The Beech Grove Safeway Foods, 1815 Albany St., will open Friday in the old Marsh Supermarket.
This is a significant event, especially for those who live in the neighborhood directly around the store and to those who have no means of transportation to get food.
I would like to thank Scott Weaver and Brad Cross for their decision to open a Safeway at that location. A viable food source is vital to the people living in this area, and it gives the citizens of our beautiful city choices for quality products and good pricing.
We will soon begin to beautify the area around the store with planters, benches and trees. It is important that we continue the positive interest in economic development of this area.
Dennis B. Buckley
Mayor of Beech Grove
