Yes no Wegmans in TX! Wonder if they would ever consider coming here.

Spoken like someone who wasn't in the Buffalo area this summer!!! Felt like the Amazon Rainforest for about three months.

Back when I lived in Buffalo, every time the temperature inched above 80, the local weather man would scream about the disastrous "heat wave" we were having and give us tips on how not to die.

I doubt it due to logistical reasons.

That's why Houston alone gained 440,000 people & Austin gained 300,000 between 2010 & 2015
Several other nation grocery store chains leave Wegman's in the dust such as Kroger's brand
Fry's Market Place or Smith Market Place,

Tan legs, Wegmans is not headquartered in Buffalo, so there's no need to trash them. Topps, on the other hand....

Fry's Market Place or Smith Market Place,
"Fry's Marketplace is a multi-department store that offers full-service grocery, pharmacy, Ticketmaster/Ticketron, one-hour photo lab, and general merchandise including outdoor living products, electronics, home goods and toys" How does that "leave Wegmans in the dust"? Smiths marketplace also has general merchandise and a grocery section. They really don't compare to Wegmans, which is a grocery store only. I know you love to trash Buffalo at every opportunity but comparing, Wegmans which is based in Rochester, to some department stores with grocery sections is a bit much even for you.

Not trashing, just reality. When your desperately looking for something positive
and the only thing you can find positive to talk about is a grocery store says it all again.

I'm sure you know that Wegmans is also in Pennsylvania, NJ, Mass, Maryland and Virginia and growing by strong demand. I guess the whole eastern US is pretty bored.
