Nest Egg Briefs: Understanding the new SECURE Act’s impact

The U.S. Congress and President Donald Trump recently passed the bipartisan Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act as part of another spending bill needed to keep the federal government operating for a few more months. The SECURE Act represents one of the biggest changes to retirement planning since 2010, and though there are some negative elements, on balance it has the potential to improve taxpayers’ ability to save for retirement. Following is a brief summary.

What's in a name?: Andronico's fans to see as brand returns to Los Altos

Safeway Community Market” width=
Megan V. Winslow/Town Crier
Safeway Community Market in Rancho Shopping Center is preparing to drop the company’s rebranding from 2016 and revert to its former name, Andronico’s. Items from Safeway’s Signature line are currently on sale.

Some call it the “Baby Safeway.” To others, it’s “Safronico’s.” As soon as this week, however, customers may start referring to the petite market in Rancho Shopping Center as Andronico’s once again, as signage – and more – is set to revert back to its pre-2016 state.

The change is part of a rebranding effort Safeway is undertaking at four Safeway Community Market locations known as Andronico’s until 2016, the year Albertsons, Safeway’s parent company, purchased them: two in Berkeley, one in San Anselmo and the one at 690 Fremont Ave. in Rancho Shopping Center in Los Altos. A fifth location in San Francisco retained part of the original name, which is shared by an Andronico’s Community Market that opened January 2019 in Monterey.
