I've been to grocery stores all over the country...Wegmans is by far the best. Prices aren't bad compared to others. But the shoppers club at other grocery stores does seem to save a little more.

Default Wegmans

I can't argue with that; I love Wegmans. But is anyone else disappointed in the new shopping carts? I miss the "mid-sized" option. The new large size seems enormous to me and very awkward to use--I keep seeing people in the aisles at my store (Pittsford) banging into one another. (I also have a friend with three kids who says for her, the new largest cart is too small compared to the old large carts--something about the design--it doesn't hold as much stuff and the baskets are too shallow, so you can't pile things up as much.) The small-sized option is like the old smallest carts and really only good if you just need a few things.
I do like their smooth wheels but I still miss the old ones.

Love my Weggies.....I know outsiders find it somewhat pathetic we find such joy in a food supplier but Wegmans aint just any grocery store: it is an experience and in a time when customer service is falling down all over, it means a lot to have a stock person actually walk me to the area of marinated artichokes instead of getting that "DUH" look on their face and aimlessly pointing "somewhere over there...."

And the new reusable bags are beautiful and they hold a ton of food...thanks Wegmans for helping to put a stop to plastic bags that litter the landscape!!!!

Does anyone think that Wegmans would ever build a hise rise downtown Rochester? They keep expanding headquarters in chili. I think its about time for a them to build downtown.

We are from Rochester but have lived away for many years now. We miss Wegman's so much and brag about it to everyone all the time!
We live in an area that they are building in-mid-atlantic,but there still isn't one around the corner.
People always say "isn't it just a grocery store" and then after they visit one,they understand!

I wouldn't be surprised if they did.

I was one of the few that didn't understand why people took such pride in a supermarket but when I moved here in October and shortly after went to my local one in Brockport,then I understood!!!
