Safeway's parent company Albertson's is laying off delivery drivers and will partner with companies like DoorDash to deliver groceries.
The company says it will layoff many of its Safeway, Lucky, and Vons delivery drivers at the end of next month.

The laid off drivers will be given opportunities to stay with the company
