Safeway, located in the Clayton Station Shopping Center in the City of Clayton, has temporarily closed tonight to prevent concert goers from the Lil’ Wayne concert at the Pavilion from entering the store.
The store closed immediately when traffic began to leave the Pavilion, and an employee standing behind the door would only say “we had a problem earlier and had to close”.
However, Claycord.com heard earlier on Friday that Safeway already had plans to shut down when the concert goers were leaving.
Also, Clayton Police are blocking all the entrances to the shopping center on Kirker Pass Road, and Concord Police are preventing vehicles from turning right on to Clayton Road from Kirker Pass.
They are trying to get the crowd out of the cities of Concord & Clayton as soon as possible.
UPDATE, 11:21pm: There were no problems at the concert tonight, and cars are still leaving the pavilion. Safeway is still closed.
UPDATE, 11:40pm: Valero and Shell (gas stations) on the corner of Kirker & Clayton are also closed.
UPDATE, 12:20am: Safeway & Shell are now back open.
Valero is closed for the night.
