Never been to Safeway, but Publix has dominated every market it enters for a reason. Super friendly customer service is always the norm at Publix, as is cleanliness and attractive, bright stores.

Publix is kind of like the illicit love-child of a Shoprite and a Whole Foods... It has Whole Foods' cleanliness and attractiveness with Shoprite's value, quality, and selection.

safeway, much better selection, better quality foods as well... much better deli. Really prefer not shopping at either but safeway pretty easily for me.

Isn't Safeway the same as Dominicks in Chicagoland?

same way albertsons was jewel osco

safeway is also 24 hours

Publix is alright. Safeway is a bit better but a little more expensive and that's saying something because Publix isn't exactly cheap. However, I do like Publix subs.

I concur. Publix is the best to me. I have been to Safeway in Maryland and thought it was ok but nothing compared to Publix. Did you know that publix will Steam Crab legs for you (with Old Bay Seasoning)?

I do love the local Publix here in Atlanta, especially the deli counter. To their credit, they are the only chain that was able to come in and steal significant market share from the Kroger monolith. Other chains have tried and failed.

I've never been to a Publix since it looks heavily concentrated in the Southeast. Safeway is pretty big out here in Southern California, where they generally operate under the "Vons" or more upscale "Pavilions" name. I find prices high at Pavilions for food that really isn't any different that what is at Vons. They are large and clean stores usually though in my area.

Safeway also operates under these regional names in addition to Safeway branded stores:
Carrs: Alaska
Dominick's: Chicagoland
Genuardi's: Delaware
Randall's: Texas
Tom Thumb: Texas
Vons: Southern California/Nevada
Pavilions: Southern California
