Man, I miss Wegmans so much. All we have around us is Stop and Shop.
It's an essential ritual that we make daily runs to the Webster Wegmans when we all come home for Thanksgiving. My wife and I *love* gummies. In Boston it's like 3 bucks for a quarter pound. WTF? That's 4 times the Wegman's price.
Wegman's also works with local farmers to get fresh, local produce. I met a farmer the other day and he mentioned Wegman's will meet with farmers and suggest produce they could use. He put in 700 acres of Yukon Gold potatoes and several acres of onions, garlic etc. I'm hungry writing this.
It's not wierd. All you have to do is get stuck having to go to other supermarkets to appreciate Wegmans. Even the super walmarts have less selection and higher prices...besides the people of walmart that inhabit them.
Could not agree more... just got back from a weeks vaction and all we had access to was a PigglyWiggly ... holy wow was I glad to see the big W again when I got home. Nothing like being able to buy fresh non rotten produce!
While wegmans is by far my favorite grocery store I've ever shopped in, Tops does seem to be cheaper. Also wegmans doesn't have my favorite cereal, but tops does. but wegmans chinese, pizza, subs, sushi will blow out any other supermarkets foods, its delicious.
