Roy SedanoThe other two Safeways are old no one wants to shop there just like the Luckys in Hercules. Safeway gas is beating Shell prices not to mention added retail and chain restaurants something Hercules doesn't have. I'm all in I'm tired of driving to other cities to spend my money.25   ·  3 weeks ago

Joanne Sklavos SaporitaHercules is in need of commercial tax revenue. The fact that there are Safeway stores in other cities, does nothing for our City. Bring on a "Big" Safeway comparabl to that of El Cerrito. In all my years here, something is always "coming"' but in reality, "nothing" ever gets here. We welcome a big Safeway and gas station. Bring it on!5   ·  3 weeks ago

Roy SedanoTraffic should not be a concern look at the Dublin and San Ramon Safeways they have gas stations traffic isn't to bad. Concord has a little traffic but it's located next to a college and mall.3   ·  3 weeks ago

Birtram K WilliamsWe already have 2 nearby Safeways!!! This is a dumb idea and we should be courting Whole foods or something similar.. Neither of the two nearby Safeways seem to get as busy as the trader joes.. This is a great idea 20 years ago but today?! Silly3   ·  3 weeks ago

Kevin NeelyThis is exactly why the Lucky's is remodeling the inside of their store right now! They have also vastly expanded what they are carrying. It took Safeway to make a move to get here to finally get them to up their game! I agree a whole foods would be nice but folks around here are not going to pay whole foods prices. I pay them, but that does not mean everyone else will! I want to open a car wash/detail center and the city does nothing but give me the run around! As far as Costco is concerned...do you really want to do that to this city? Lol! I don't mind going to Vallejo for Costco because richmond is a nightmare! Soooo at the end of the day I guess a Safeway isn't so bad along with a gas station.2   ·  3 weeks ago

Estefania Sosa SedanoKevin Neely too bad the city is giving you the run around that would be awesome in Hercules! Don't give up!1   ·  3 weeks ago

Shawn MaplesGrocery stores bring in a small amount of sales tax. If there is a gas station that would be great for taxes. There is a trader Joes in Pinole and no one should shop at Whole wallet...that place is way over priced.. let's face it..what ever the city leaders do will involve corruption and total mismanagement.1   ·  3 weeks ago

Gail Denise WhittakerI agree the ones in the other cities are out dated and we need another store to bring in more people and revenue for Hercules.3   ·  3 weeks ago

Brenda McCuistionNo thank you.2 weeks ago

Wendy HarrisonWe need some competition for Lucky's. I think Lucky's is anticipating the building of Safeway because they've been doing extensive remodeling.2 weeks ago

Kimberly Monaco MundayI'd like to see an old school bookstore, w/ coffee shop. LIke Kepler's in Palo Alto back in the day. I'm tired of having to order books and CD's on line, I like looking at them, touching them first.3 weeks ago

Did you know Sycamore Crossing will have a Walking Trail?

It's true! If approved by the City of Hercules, the Sycamore Crossing project will not be your average shopping center, but a lifestyle center complete with a scenic walking trail, outdoor eating areas and open space! LIKE and SHARE this post with your Hercules neighbors!

Estefania Sosa SedanoWhen will it be approved? Is there a time frame of when they will decide?2   ·  4 weeks ago

Joty N SaurabhI am hopeful but City of Hercules never get anything done!4   ·  4 weeks ago

Phil SimmonsYep, But the main trail will be the hike you will have to take to get from the street to the store entrances unless of coarse you are driving there. So much for a walkable urban plan. Nothing like a nature walk at a strip mall.3   ·  4 weeks ago

Debra A MimsWhat we need is Bart not walking trails to Safeway. Wake up Hercules. That project has been sitting there for at least 7 years untouched and incomplete. You sold it pennies on a dollar and still can't seem to get the developer to finish the project. We could be an amazing town if we got our act together, wish someone would please listen.2   ·  4 weeks ago

Not only will the proposed Sycamore Crossing center have a new Safeway, but it will have a number of other shops and restaurants to better serve the surrounding community! However, we still need hte approval of the City to move forward. Stay tuned for important project updates!
