Wegmans Website:


Massachusetts: Northborough


Maryland: Abingdon, Fredrick, Hunt Valley, Lanham


Virginia: Fairfax, Sterling, Fredricksburg, Woodbridge, Gainsville, Leesburg


Pennsylvania: Allentown, Bethlehem, Collegeville, Downingtown, Easton, Erie, Glen Mills, Malvern, Mechanicsburg, Scranton, State College, Warrington, Wilkes-Barre, Williamsport


New Jersey: Bridgewater, Cherry Hill, Englishtown, Mt. Laurel, Ocean, Princeton, Woodbridge


New York: Amherst, Auburn, Brockport, Buffalo, Canandaigua, Cicero, Corning, Depew, E. Syracuse, Elmira, Fairport, Fayetteville, Geneseo, Geneva, Hornell, Ithaca, Jamestown, Johnson City, Liverpool, Newark, Niagara Falls, Penfield, Rochester, Syracuse, Webster, West Seneca, Williamsville




I don't know how updated this list is because it left Glen Mills (I added), and Brooklyn, and I think there is a store closer to Boston in the works.


But overall not many urban locations, so another Philadelphia location will likely be in Chester County since that is the only county that doesn't have one even though Glen Mills is close.

At least one Richmond store is open. That's covered on the Richmond board as well as in at least one Wegmans thread on the Triangle board for NC.

They have to figure out what they're doing in New England & North Carolina. They have to also figure out if they plan to include Charleston & Greenville in South Carolina. They have to figure out Philadelphia, Baltimore, & DC. then they have to make decisions about distribution centers. They have acquired or are in the process of acquiring land in NC. It's unlikely that they will stop with Raleigh.

But wait. The KofP Wegmans is the only one in the Philly 'burbs, right?
No. There's new(ish)) Wegmans in the Glen Mills/Concordville area. I say it that way because to I WOULD say it's Concordville, but technically it has a Glen Mills address.

It's a couple of lights down Route 1 (Baltimore Pike) from the Concordville Towne Center (and a Costco across Route 1) -- at Route 1 and Route 202 -- on the 202 side. You CAN get to it from (Route 1/Baltimore Pike), but you can't see it from that side, so you sort of have to know it's there. I think you can see it from 202, IF you know where to look, because it's back off the highway. It's sort of in a fancy business park area…on "Applied Bank Blvd."

What kind of details do you want? It's a pretty new store, taking over from Superfresh.

If you are driving, park free in the Whole Foods parking lot. I know, I know... it's "supposed" to be for WF customers only, so if you feel guilt buy an apple at WF on the way back from Acme.

I love me some Rittenhouse Market. I moved from the neighborhood so I don't get there much anymore. They may not have as many "healthy options" (they do OK) but those cookies and baked goods in the front are om nom nom.

I mentioned in the other thread that I love Giant too; I would also be all about Wegmans if they were closer. Occasionally I go across the bridge to the one in Cherry Hill. I prefer that one to the one in KoP because there are other stores right there that I can shop at, too.

I would trade Whole Foods for Wegmans all day long.

If your game plan is only to visit the Acme, though, you can get your parking ticket for the garage above it validated for two hours free parking if you shop there. It'll be easier to haul your stuff to your car if you do.

I used to shop there regularly when I lived in Wash West. A&P gave the store, which opened in 1988, a makeover in the early 2000s that included a black acoustical tile ceiling, spot lighting in the produce section (much as you will find now at the Acme at 10th and Reed), halogen lights over the aisles and a section at the back of the store that contained the service deli, bakery and prepared foods counters. (The service fish counter was in back of this core, next to the poultry cases.)

The store's configuration, and its decor, remain unchanged from when A&P last redid it, but the spot lighting and halogen lights are all gone. You can see what's in the aisles better, but it looks a little less dramatic now.

I've been in Wegmans stores, and they're quite impressive, but my general attitude remains "Who needs Wegmans when you have the Reading Terminal Market?"

Whole Paycheck is by and large above my pay grade. But I will admit their stuff is very high quality, and its stores have cheese sections to die for.

But I can go to DiBruno Bros. for that and support a fine local family.
