Work begins on new Sonic, other locations

Safeway revamp to include liquor corner, Starbucks kiosk


Those looking for a caffeine fix or a quick burger will soon have new choices.

Safeway plans to revamp its look starting this week, according to Michael Nichols with Seagren Construction. Nichols started work Wednesday which will include a minor remodel with new shelves and tile and, most importantly for those who are looking for a new place to get their cup of joe, a Starbucks kiosk.

A new, more convenient entryway will also be constructed at the front of the store instead of the side. It will also feature new paint and new refrigerator casing. Safeway is also installing a liquor corner as part of this remodel.

"It's a great way to have a one stop shop so people don't have to go to a different location to get their adult beverages," Nichols said.

The outside of the store will also be getting new signage and new stucco. This is long overdue because it was an older looking building, Nichols said.

"Everything is getting updated, he added.

Construction is tentatively scheduled to be completed around the second week in November.

Work began last week on the long anticipated Sonic drive in.

"It will feature inside dining and a car hop drive through," said Sidney building inspector Brad Rowan.

The new restaurant will include an indoor and outdoor fireplace with a cozy feel, according to Rowan.

In addition to these new renovations and constructions, work is still underway at the Bell Pole and Lumber plant near Adams Industries and work on the Cabela's building on 13th Ave. and Illinois should be complete by the end of October.
