business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Chicago Sun Times reports that Safeway has promised to “aggressively remodel” its Dominicks stores in the Windy City region if the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) approves a new three-year contract that is on the table. A vote by the unionized employees is expected to be concluded by the end of the month.

Company CEO Steve Burd told analysts this week that the goal is to remodel stores in the “Lifestyle” format that it has found to be successful in changing the company’s image and fortunes.

Safeway concedes that something has to be done with Dominicks to stop its drag on company earnings…and it is right.
