Thanks to a great INBW reader, the Safeway grocery store on Argonne Rd. , just south of I-90 in Spokane Valley has been confirmed to be closing it's doors soon.
We mentioned this as a strong rumor back in late Jan. and hoped the news was not true. But unfortunately it has been confirmed by Safeway employees. Their current last day of business will be March 4th.
The closure is due to the lease expiring on the building / low sales / heavy competition in the area. What we had heard, but not confirmed is that some employees of the Argonne Rd. store will be able to transfer into other open positions at other Spokane area stores.
The Argonne Rd. Safeway is located 1441 N. Argonne Rd. in Spokane Valley. In addition the Liberty Lake Safeway location on Liberty Lake Road will also be leaving the Safeway chain but will stay open for business.
The Liberty Lake Safeway is one of several locations converting to the Haggen Northwest Fresh grocery store chain. For more on that locations news check out this link-
