The Millbrae Safeway store will expand its workforce by more than 50 percent when it opens the doors to its renovated store about a year from now, a spokeswoman for the grocery chain told Patch.
The Millbrae store, which is slated to , currently employs 100. The new store will employ over 150, spokeswoman Wendy Gutshall said.
The 37,000 square foot store on 525 El Camion Real, which first opened its doors in 1962, will be completely demolished and rebuilt from the ground up into a new "Podium style" structure in the 54,000 square foot range offering expanding selections.
Gutshall said the design is based on the company's "lifestyle" concept around which about 85 percent of the chain's stores nationally have adopted.
The renovated store will offer customers expanded selections of produce, meat, bakery, seafood and organic foods, Gutshall said.
All current employees at the Millbrae Safeway will be placed at other stores during the renovations, Gutshall said.
