I saw them in there last week as well, right by the rest rooms. Didn't know they made it their home. I am surprised Safeway is letting them do this. I saw the African American with them as well.

I go to that Safeway a few times a month, and have noticed they aren't on the rock. I did notice the guy behind me in line at Starbucks when I was on my way out. Starbucks is a "luxury item". I work full time and still only get Starbucks a few times a month because it's not a necessity to buy coffee when I can make it at home. To see these people getting Starbucks is just another reason why I never give them money.

I know this couple personally (unfortunately)and they are nothing but scammers. I once offered work to Keith (the black man) and he turned me down saying "my feet hurt". I don't believe in giving handouts so I thought I would be nice and offer to let him work for some money but he refused figuring some other sucker would come along and give him some money and he wouldn't even have to break a sweat to get it.
LPD has finally cracked down on the panhandling in Livermore. Anyone that loiters and begs for money by holding a sign or simply asking for donations will be told to leave.
As a tax payer in this city I am very happy that they are cracking down. I work hard for what I have and feel that any self respecting person should do the same.

I'm glad to hear LPD has cracked down on panhandling. It's everywhere. Just at that one Safeway, there is the couple on the "rock" and then there is that mom who drags her kid along. I don't think I've been able to go to that Safeway for a year without seeing someone panhandling.

I am sure Safeway must be on to them. But what can they really do about it? Does anyone know if they lost their spot on the rock? Looks like there's someone new on the rock these days .

Have you noticed the amount of wine Nancy and Keith buy? They are just plain alcoholic bums.

Nice job! Now let's see if Safeway follows up. Lucky's removed the solicitors from in front of their store and it has been enjoyable shopping there recently. I just got tired of all the bums at Safeway.

I have to go to Safeway after work today to pick up an RX. I'll peek over to that corner to see if they're still there. I'll report back when I get home.

I didn't see them in Safeway today. However, I did notice ANOTHER person begging on the rock. I recognized her from downtown. I guess they rotate the rock.

They take turns on the "rock" sometimes even fighting over who gets it.
I am very happy to hear that Safeway at least responded to Ssophiiee.

Whoever owns that plaza should have that rock taken out. Then there would be nowhere to sit while begging.

I just read this thread and could not agree more. I have offered these bums work and they have always turned it down, why work for your keep when you can beg and get money from suckers. I don't shop at Safeway or Lowes anymore due to their apparent unwillingness to move these bums off the property. Lucky's and Home Depot actively remove the bums when they get too aggressive. I respect that, and they can have my money. Oh, and another thing, Lucky's doesn't remodel their pharmacy every month. They keep it simple so I can just go in there for my meds. I have no idea what Safeway is trying to accomplish, but they apparently have strayed away from just selling groceries, which should be their main focus. The store is beginning to look like a pimped out whorehouse with all their fancy lighting, flooring and remodeling. Just keep it simple stupid!
