Lance" Subject: Re: genitive in names of businesses A friend of mine in Austin TX, who grew up in Waco, shopped at "Safeway's," so, Tim, if there's regionality, it's a pretty wide region that includes Macomb IL and Waco TX. I'm sure I've heard others in Texas say "Safeway's" but I haven't noticed it in Missouri, though I'd expect it to occur spradically. DMLance
