When Safeway announced plans to exand their North Proctor Street Store, a windowless block wall abutting the Proctor Street sidewalk was proposed. Dan Voelpel’s newspaper article followed expressing the Proctor Districts concerns (TNT, 9-20-2007). My letter to the editor was also published, encouraging Safeway to develop a first-class store.
Safeway has responded to the challenge, building a store that enhances the neighborhood and provides customers with a joyful shopping experience. It’s worth a visit.
