Safeway has opened a new store in north San Jose, providing a key piece of what could someday be a transit village near the Berryessa BART station.
The supermarket titan has now opened two new Safeway stores in San Jose in less than a year and also recently opened a new store in the East Bay city of Hercules.
“We continue to invest in the San Jose community, and we are glad to see this exciting new development come to fruition,” said Karl Schroeder, Safeway division president of Northern California.
The new Safeway store is located at 1455 Berryessa Road and is one of the anchor tenants in the Market Park retail center.
Two weeks ago, on April 14, Safeway opened a Hercules store at 4080 San Pablo Ave. Safeway employs 165 at the new Hercules store. That store is staffed by workers who transferred from a Rodeo store that the company closed.
In October 2020, Safeway opened a store at 1305 S. Winchester Blvd. in San Jose where it employs 120 people.
