safeway

One of quite a few stores to a similar design in Winnipeg, this Safeway store finally closed in December 2008. This standard design had some variations, usually in materials on the flanking walls to the entrances at either side. Known as the “ËśMarina Style’, named for the prototype store on Marina Boulevard in San Francisco. The Marina Style was distinctive for it’s curved roofline, full glass frontage and stone, (or sometimes brick or mosaic tile), side wings.
