Anyone -

I have posted this question on SWY's board and also on the Ask a Foolish Question Board and will now post here as well.

Am interested in SWY as a possible holding, and after a look at their balance sheet, my foolish (small f!) question is:

If Safeway, or any other grocery store for that matter's customers pay for product up front, then who owes Safeway?? What exactly are receivables to a grocery store?? (up 46% from last year).

thanks
