… and many people blame Safeway.

From Philly.com:
“For many people, Genuardi’s was never the same after the corporate giant bought it from Gaspare (Genuardi) and Josephine’s children, who transformed their vegetable garden in Norristown into one of the area’s most beloved businesses.

“‘The company replaced many favorite Genuardi’s brands with Safeway products and downgraded two benchmarks of the Genuardi’s stores – produce and deli items,’ Metzger said.”

Interesting. And kind of sad.
