1970s Safeway Television Commercial: "Since We're Neighbors, Let's Be Friends"

A sixty-second Safeway television commercial from the 1970s is on YouTube:

It features a sung jingle that includes the phrase, "Since we're neighbors, let's be friends." It includes many scenes of a butcher/meat department. It includes some interior shots of a Safeway supermarket.

Great to see this. That ad campaign and jingle actually played a part in one of the most pivotal moments in the first "Tales of the City" books, as part of the description of the Marina Safeway and its role as a pick-up spot.
