BENEFITS

AFFORDABILITY

A new Safeway gas station will provide Petaluma residents much-needed access to affordable gas. Additional savings are available to Safeway shoppers that register and participate in Safeway Gas Rewards*.

CONVENIENCE

"Keep it local." Currently many residents fill up when they are out of town. A Safeway gas station in Petaluma will offer a convenient "one-stop shop" to meet their grocery and gas needs.  Helping customers stay local also supports small business owners located around Washington Square.

LOCAL ECONOMIC STIMULUS

When Petalumans buy gas in neighboring cities, their spending funds another community's  public services. More spending in Petaluma means more tax dollars kept in our neighborhoods - up to $400,000/year to support public safety, road improvements, parks and neighborhood services.  

ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY

A Safeway grocery store and gas station in Washington Square means shoppers burn less fuel traveling to neighboring cities for affordable gas. Less driving means less traffic and better air quality. Several independent studies over six years confirm the Safeway gas station poses no significant impact on health, safety,  traffic, and environmental issues.

 

A COMMUNITY CHAMPION

Since 1926, Safeway has provided generations of Petalumans with high-quality produce, meat and groceries at fair prices. Safeway employs over 300 local associates and proudly funds local nonprofits and community groups through in-store donations and Safeway Foundation grants.
