Television commercials aired, featuring helicopters flying across communities, carrying the red arrows before releasing and dropping them into a Safeway parking lot. One ad featured a man holding a rolled-up Safeway newspaper flyer, while promising viewers they would find lower prices at the Real Canadian Superstore. Moving around is my absolute favourite.
