Yes, I could have gone to Olive Garden, if I wanted to travel six miles farther away, through tunnels or over bridges. And after all that schlepping, I would still have had to do my grocery shopping.

But there it is, cooked for me and available for a reasonable price.

Very good point.

Along with their buffet, Wegmans also has a huge selection of prepared foods. While comparatively expensive, the smaller portions are perfect for some seniors, especially. Wegmans is aware of this, which is why they offer both "Family Pack" and those smaller portions.
