As a former Virginia resident I can say with confidence that comparing Kroger's to Wegman's is like comparing a Dollar General to a Macy's.

Well if they come to my neighborhood I will try it but you would be surprised at the updated Krogers. In Richmond ever one was a Ukrops Junkie until they sold out, not me. They were always too expensive compared to all the others although their prepared foods were good. At least we have variety so everone can pick their preference.

I guess EA has only one so their is no choice unless they go to an adjoining town.

I don't want to hear that the planners approved it either.

Nothing to lament, after all in the final analysis a quart of milk is a quart of milk. I don't think a grocery store is worth pining away for. BTW I have been in the newer Krogers and they are very nice, quite comparable to the newer mid sized Tops in WNY. Most of the mega 80,000 sq foot and up Tops are a cut above Krogers and just a slight drop off of the typical Wegmans. But with over 70 stores in WNY there are certainly some older Tops that are very subpar. Those should be replaced or closed as they are hurting the overall image of that chain.

I do know that the village planning folks are very very hard to please. I have family who owned a deli/service station on Main st, that burned down several years ago. Rather then rebuild, they decided to just lease the land to another business, but when they had a business that was interested, it kept getting rejected to the point where they were going to remove the planned drive-thru, and if it was rejected again, sue the village, which they ultimately didn't have to.

But we all remember the Wal-mart debacle, and I also remember when I was a teenager, there was a guy who owned a bike/skate shop on Elm St. who had mentioned to us that he was trying to open a new Mighty Taco in town, but it was rejected as well.
