Hilltop Safeway continues to improve. This time last year, the store was undergoing major improvements, including the addition of a refrigerated food-to-go section, floral displays, new checkstands, and general improvements to the interior and exterior.
Now the store is adding hot deli food to the corner between the meats section and the bread. The final outcome of the construction is a little gray for now, though. “It’s gonna be hot foods,” said Hilltop Safeway cashier Gina, “but all I’ve heard so far is that there’s going to be rotisserie chicken–”
Here’s to hoping Safeway’s bringing Chinese food to the Hilltop, too.
Presently, the spot closest to Hilltop to get Safeway’s fresh deli Chinese food is on Sixth Avenue on the way to the Narrows. Bring it to us, Safeway–rotisserie chicken and more. There’s so much a store can do with a little corner.
As quickly as it appeared, the loving tribute to the life of Mary Johnson Sconyers disappeared from its place high above the 1100 block of Hilltop’s 12th Street. It was posted sometime toward the end of 2010 and was just replaced this week with an advertisement for Quadrant Homes.
Since first spotting the memorial, I have wondered who Mary Johnson Sconyers was to the people of Hilltop. She must have a story, only I cannot find it. I have searched the internet to find out who she was and have only been able to find a death record through Pierce County. That simply does not satisfy me. I hope with time and patience I will be able to find out a thing or two about this lovely woman.
Artist Bob Henry painted Hilltop’s diversity mural on MLK Way near 9th Street. It is across the street from People’s Park. The mural is a testament to the hopeful spirit of Martin Luther King Jr. and the strides citizens of Tacoma’s Hilltop have made toward peace. Let’s celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision today and every day.
