The ghost of a young boy has been seen in the halls leading to the storage room around closing time, or sitting beside crates with his head down and his arms around his knees. Some say the building was a motel in the mid 1900s but local gang members burned it down.

  1. I grew up in this neighborhood in the early 80s going on weekly trips to the Safeway. My little sister would tell us about seeing a boy all the time. She said he seemed sad. And always wanted to try and help him. Both my mom and I always felt something else, distinctly malevolent in the elevator. I was there a few months ago again and despite a new elevator I still get hairs on the back of my neck and something feels downright wrong in there.
