Wegmans: Store Is a Wonderland
By George Anderson
The numbers of the faithful are growing with every new store Wegmans opens.
Consumers such as Tom and Lorraine Decker of Phillipsburg, NJ drive 15 miles across the state line to shop at a Wegmans in Easton, Pennsylvania.
The Baltimore Sun calls Wegmans “an escape, where the harried parents can grab a cafe latte, relax over lunch – with made-to-order salads, subs and sushi among the takeout or eat-in options – then stroll a European-style marketplace bursting with baguettes and Italian bread, raspberry puff eclairs, shark, shrimp and mackerel.”
Moderator’s Comment: Is Wegmans the next Wal-Mart?
Do you think it grow from its upstate New York roots to become a national chain?
Meg Major, fresh foods editor, Progressive Grocer does.
She told The Baltimore Sun, “I think Wegmans in years to come will be from here
to the West Coast, without any doubt.” [George
