Safeway Press Release (4/5/05)

Safeway Inc. Announces Preliminary Sales Results for First Quarter 2005; Reports Adjusted Non-Fuel Identical Store Sales of 1.6% PLEASANTON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 5, 2005--Safeway Inc. (NYSE:SWY) announced preliminary sales results for the first quarter ended March 26, 2005. Total sales increased approximately 12% to $8.6 billion in the first quarter of 2005 from $7.7 billion in the first quarter of 2004. Sales in the first quarter of 2005 were impacted by a strike in southern California that covered eight weeks of a 12 week quarter. Excluding sales at strike-affected stores, comparable store sales increased 4.4% and identical store sales increased 4.0%. Further excluding fuel sales, comparable store sales increased 3.2% and identical store sales increased 2.8%. Easter sales predominantly occurred in the last week of the first quarter of 2005, versus the second quarter in 2004, and had a beneficial impact on the full quarter. When adjusting for the holiday, non-fuel identical store sales increased 1.6%. ''Safeway's strong sales performance in the quarter marks a key inflection point in the Company's reinvention and underscores our confidence in the effectiveness of our overall strategy,'' said Steve Burd, Chairman, President and CEO. ''The implementation of our strategy to improve the consumer experience began two years ago. Using our consumer insight work as a guide, we dramatically increased the quality of perishables, introduced a growing stable of proprietary products, significantly increased our offerings in prepared meals, developed a store concept called the Lifestyle store and improved our industry leading customer service, all of which have contributed to our recent sales increases.''
