Bend Safeway reopening sign

The Safeway on Bend’s eastside has been closed for more than two weeks following the shooting that left an employee and customer dead. There is a sign Monday that the store is getting close to opening its doors again.

A sign posted on the side of the building in The Forum reads “Re-opening soon. Stronger Together.”

Central Oregon Daily News is reaching out to the company to learn the exact date the store will reopen.

Employee Donald Surrett, 66, and customer Glenn Bennett, 84, were killed in the Aug. 29 shooting.

Police say Bennett was shot near the west entrance of the store. 

Surrett had “ample” opportunity to run, police said. But he hid behind a produce cart, armed with a produce knife, and waited for the shooter in an attempt to disarm him.

The shooter took his own life, police said.
