Who We Are
Before February of 2003, departments and distribution centers purchased incentive and award items from a variety
of third-party suppliers. When this spending was reviewed, it was discovered that the Safeway Employee Store (SES)
had the buying power necessary to cut the expense incurred by these purchases by as much as 50 percent!
An expense reduction mandate was immediately approved, to stop all third-party purchasing and run all such merchandise purchases through SES.
SES encompasses the Optional Uniform Program, Safeway Corporate Catalog, Website and the Employee Store. We purchase uniforms, logo merchandise, awards, incentives and gift items.
Our goal is to meet the purchasing needs of our employees, management and all backstage departments. We have established relationships with many suppliers that gives us the lowest price on all items.
