The Grand Re-Opening of Safeway, located on 475 M St., will be celebrated on Friday.

The preview party from 4-8 p.m. will showcase Safeway's renovated store and new items. Safeway's makeover started about two months ago, and is finally complete.

Sampling stations will be located at each department to showcase different items. Extra staff will be on hand to help customers locate new items in the renovated store.
