What do Palo Altans want in a supermarket?

With news of two new boutique supermarkets in Alma and Edgewood Plazas and the Mountain View Safeway due for a move to larger premises while Safeway in Menlo Park still very popular, it does once again seem appropriate to ask what we really want here in Palo Alto.
Midtown Safeway is still very popular with parking and lack of staples on the shelves before dinner time still a complaint. Last time I was there, a line of cars formed on Middlefield trying to get into the parking lot while others drove round in circles looking for spots.
Do we still consider boutique neighborhood stores fitting our needs or do we want a large, catchall, supermarket?
