Great grocery store.
This is the closest grocery store to my sister's house in Danville. Although I shop at Vons in LA all the time, this particular Safeway (the same chain, really) is a cut above. I suppose that's because it's right in the middle of the Blackhawk development. It's more akin to a Pavilions than a Vons. I have to say I actually enjoy shopping here. It's a fairly new store, so the aisles are larger than many Vons stores in LA...and the selection of produce is much larger.
