The Church and Market Safeway (2200 Market St.) has moved all its shopping carts inside the store after 160 carts were stolen in recent weeks.
Multiple Safeway shoppers have recently reported that all the shopping carts had disappeared and that they were required to use hand baskets.
“Unbelievable, there were no shopping carts when I went to the Market/Church Safeway,” wrote Upper Market resident Scott S. in a Duboce Triangle Neighborhood Facebook group. “I asked for one and I was told all of the carts had been stolen.”
“They had a shipment of 160 carts last week and all of them have been taken,” added Scott S. “What good is having security if they can’t stop someone walking off the property with a shopping cart.”
