Maybe I missed it, but I would think that the exiting of Fresh and Easy would have been on the Safeway Board. After five years of operation, expanding their market presence, they have decided to leave the U.S because they can't make money. I was never impressed by their stores, but I am only one person. It appears that others shared my opinion as their profit declined 96% on the last reporting. Oh well, it won't be the first to go under. Seems Safeway and others survived the great recession, but Fresh and Easy did not.
