The Safeway supermarket at the Belle View Shopping Center will soon close for about four months for renovations.
Safeway spokesman Craig Muckle said the exact date the store will close has not yet been determined. That depends on obtaining building permits and completing other necessary paperwork.
“What we’re doing is increasing the square footage by about 5,300 square feet,” Muckle said. “The store will be closed for a few months ... four is what we are anticipating.”
Muckle said the renovated store will feature a new meat and seafood department service. The store already has a fish market, but the department will be fully staffed after the renovation, he said.
The renovated store will also feature a Starbucks kiosk and a bakery expanded to include a hearth oven and exterior seating. Six self-checkout stands will be added.
The store is located at 1624 Belle View Blvd.
