Carmen Safeway on its Way to the Door....

Another business closing down. The Middle Roaders found out from the community that Carmen Safeway is shutting its doors for good on Nov. 15. Isn't this another sad note from Saipan? Carmen Safeway provides the best Angus beef on the island and on very reasonable prices too.

Carmen Safeway used to be Meitetsu Shopping Center. It was acquired in 2005 and was named Carmen Safeway. The supermarket with its warehouse and offices, stands on a 3,000-sqm land on Beach Road, Chalan Kanoa. It started operations as early as 1976 as Carmen Safeway Meitetsu as a joint venture between the two companies until 1992.

Carmen Safeway sold its interests over the supermarket to the Japanese firm and focused on handling the Carmen's Baby News store next to the supermarket. In 2005 Meitetsu sold its interests over the supermarket to Carmen Safeway.

If it's true or not, we're certain that other businesses will follow this trend. They can't wait anymore for that promise of the Guam Military Buildup.

I'm not surprised. How many other businesses will be shutting their doors?

The sad thing is, things are only going to get worse. There is absolutely no signs of this economy improving.

But there is hope. Our leaders are working hard to reduce salaries through unpaid holidays again. Thankfully, they will be spared the cuts.

Truly a case of "Do as I say, not as I do." If we ask them why they don't cut their salaries, they will say they cannot because it is against the constitution. LOL! Anyone can volunteer a paycut. That's a fact.

I seriously hope we break out the brooms in 2009. Out with the old, in with the new...

This comes from a VERY reliable source:

When Federalization is finalized, DFS for sure.

DFS is already hurting, while Hard Rock is sucking dry and on it's last leg. DFS cannot even pay it's CUC bill and is therefore taking drastic actions to get off the grid.

Carmen Safeway has no choice, the minimum wage hike killed them with a little help from their CUC bill.

Welcome to Federaliztion. No spinning it.

to carmen's safeway,

thanks for bringing in a high quality selection of goods and for making me feel welcome every time i passed through your doors.

Things are bad all over the world. Carmen Safeway should have just scaled down their operations instead of shutting their doors.

Anyways, things will get worse for us with the pending federalization of our immigration. We should all thank Ed and Tina for their great efforts.

Cheers!
