On July 26, each branch location will randomly select ten finalists who will have the opportunity to win $10,000 at a special event in August.

At the event, U.S. Bank and Safeway will provide each of the ten contestants with a list of seven items sold at Safeway. Contestants will be asked to arrange the items on the list so they match a confidential, pre-determined "official" Safeway shopping list. If a contestant's list matches the official Safeway shopping list, the contestant will be awarded $10,000. All ten finalists at each location will receive a $100 Safeway Gift Card. Contest rules and regulations are available at participating locations.
