Safeway Canada - Review in Food Stores category from New Westminster, British Columbia
Iam a 49 yearold male, I left the Skytrain at New Westminster Station, and went to the Safeway at - #220, 800 Carnarvon St
New Westminster, BC, I started shopping, I needed to pee, I noticed an "out of order" sign on the customer washroom.It is always closed after 8pm, just like their bottle return program, due to New Wests, I quote Safeway Manager, Gagan B., "the bathroom is covered with *** and it's not my job to clean it," and "we do not allow bottle returns after 8pm due to the homeless." Homeless, You piker, have as much entitlement to a bottle return as the Queen herself!
Having to pee , I was upset and wanted relief, but Gagagain B denied my the staff washroom. We're talking number 2 and I promised to be so careful! My protests angered another patron who though that I might be acting unresonablely. He chose the healthier approach and shut up.
He didn't need to pee as badly as me. Mr. Manager Gagan B. instructed me that though I could shop there the WC was closed to customers.
I shop(ed) at Safeway - #220, 800 Carnarvon St
New Westminster, BC every day for 30 years, my Irish immigrant Grandfather slaved there for 25 years, never denying a customer bathroom access.
IGA, Save-On, my patronage is yours - nice facilities.:-)
