Well like I said, I haven't been. They don't seem to have any on the west coast. I looked in Washington, Oregon and California.

What makes it impressive to you?

They seem to have most anything you could possibly want - and that even applies to stuff made fresh.


Like a fully operating bakery right in front of you: at 9:20 pm on a Sunday night. In the burbs.


The same goes for fresh sushi counters, and all sorts of other types of fresh foods.


It's like an awesome city market (I am thinking of Jean-Talon in Montreal as it's close and fresh in my mind) operating at its peak, but all the time and under one roof. With all the other non-perishable and non-food stuff you also could want.


They originated in and are still based in the Buffalo-Rochester-Syracuse area of New York state -which is due south of me across the border. And have branched out to parts of the NE US as well: from about Boston down to DC it looks like.


People from Upstate New York who move to areas where there are no Wegmans are often known to go through grocery store withdrawal!

The closest Wegmans is a 22-minute drive from me.

Not that convenient.

Sounds nice, and for a large chain good. Still doesn't give me grocery store envy, but then again I live in the centre of Vancouver and what you have listed exists in some of our chains like Urban Fare.
