Safeway closes

It was a sad day on Cliffe Avenue Saturday afternoon, as Safeway staff and management said goodbye to each other and to the community. The grocery store closed its doors for a final time Saturday at 6 p.m., marking an end to more than 80 years of business in Courtenay. The store gave back to the community one last time, at the end of the business day, as the Comox Valley Food Bank was the benefactor of all the remaining produce. In the top photo, a Safeway staff member loads the food bank’s van.  - Terry Farrell
