Q:Does Safeway take Apple Pay?
A:Beginning in October 2017, Safeway began rolling out the ability for customers to use Apple Pay at checkout. This was confirmed on Twitter as seen below.
Hi, thanks for asking. We are in the process of rolling it out through the month of October. Have a great day.

We have not come across an official list of the stores that currently have Apply Pay. We will update this article once we have additional information or word on when it is fully rolled out.
Interestingly, grocery stores seem to be on the move to implement Apple Pay. Publix has announced that they are working on getting Apple Pay in stores and Aldi recently added it as a payment option to all stores. The roll out has been slow in the minds of some, but it appears to be picking up pace.
