I have seriously considered taking a picture of the store for these posts, but I'm not sure if I'd be breaking TOS, & it would be hard to show the scale of the place.

What more can I say except 80,000 sq feet makes for a big store. They have seating near the deli section & some chairs in the books & magazine section.

If any of these folks were truly enamored with these stores they'd have a tattoo of them.

Out where I live I am excited that we will get a Dollar General. Im like SB it makes going to store more enjoyable. Convenience isnt always better. Go and Stock for one lkimonth. It Makes it a Guilty Pleasure. I love walking down every aisle with my cart pushing my buggy.

Wegmans is OK if you are rich and don't mind blowing your money, but HT is far and away much more superior then Wegmans, who is highly overrated

I want a Piggly Wiggly and I would be happy if Winn Dixie returned to Charlotte. I'm tired of these "lifestyle" type grocery stores.

There's a Piggly Wiggly in Blacksburg, SC. Enjoy yourself. Oddly enough, the people from Blacksburg & Grover, SC. stream over the boarder to the Kings Mountain Ingles. The grass is always greener.

Consumer reports did a 2009 survey that ranked Wegman's #1 overall and they are cheaper than HT.
Wegman's, Trader Joes then Publix top 3 then HT 5th.

Just for comparison shopping-we were at the Supertarget near Northlake Mall Saturday night. I use Boca Crumbles-- ST price $2.24 a bag. I am lucky if it is less than $4.00 in Hickory. I had to get my local store to carry it when Walmart stopped stocking it in our area. It would be worth it for me to bring a cooler and stock up when I am make a trip to CLT.

I like that you can get a bigger variety-- buffalo, ostrich just to name a few when I shop at Wegman's. We can barely get our hands on decent lamb--at reasonable prices.

The grocery store side of the mega stores is like a normal grocery store with maybe some extra choices. I have been very happy with Wegman's house brands which are also very reasonable $$. Great marinades, sauces and dressings usually 1/2 the price of the name brands and just as many choices/flavors.
