I don't know if this has been mentioned before but Glazier's Supermarket is closing. I believe it is the only independent supermarket in the area. The owner has sold it to Smith's which is going to turn it into a typical Smith's.

It was my favorite supermarket because it carried items that I haven't been able to find anywhere else. Specifically, they sold Italian dishes like stuffed shells and manicotti that could easily be made into a quick meal by just adding sauce. Does anyone know of any other store that sells these kind of items?

Heard about this a few days ago, very sad news indeed. I used to shop there all the time when I lived nearby. Loads of ery hard to find international items. I wish Trader Joes had bought it instead of Kroger.

Anyone know what happened to Bill Glazier? He is the jolly older fellow usually sitting near the piano.

EDIT: This place was the closest to Wegmans the SW will ever have gotten a taste of, to those who know what I'm talking about. Someone, anyone? lol.

I lived around the corner from the original big Wegman's on Monroe Ave in Pittsford NY for 5 years.

And Earlier I worked in the basement of Hegedorns in Webster.

I suppose this is the closest you and I come to a bond... or did you despise the place? But yeah, Buffalo area, no? Least sun to the most sun you went.

All my children were born in ROC. They sall still claim it. They mostly grew up in OC where we lived prior to LV. But actually one is in Portland, one in rural CN and one in Boston. So they abandoned the sunny SW.

I actually used to like the winters. Disliked the spring very much. Summer and fall were fine. Will not go back to any where near there for a number of reasons the biggest being I am handicapped and will not go anywhere with ice or snow. I am dangerous walking on a dry sidewalk so I avoid anything icy.

I totally agree. When I moved out here in 2016 the only thing I really missed about home aside from people was Wegmans. Glazier's was the only place that remotely reminded me of it.

That's too bad, was a nice bit of variety in the dull Las Vegas market. Smith's will do well there, that Vons across the street is becoming a zoo much of the time. I thought Glaziers was a nice idea, but just way too big. The place is definitely more expensive than the competition if one was going to do all their shopping there. They have some really nice unique items and the whole left side of the store is a good place to visit on occasion. But the middle and the right side are nothing special and just more expensive and therefore were not really needed. A large deli/bakery/wine store has good potential in the marketplace and the prepared foods/take out is a great high margin business. They could have done that with less than half the space, about the same as a Trader Joes footprint.

I don't think there is anything wrong with a geographically diversified family under the right circumstances, so I hope that is the case. Speaking of Spring though, but in Las Vegas, the wind really carries and spreads all the pollen around and it is dreadful for allergies. Far worse than anything I remember back east. Sorry about your handicap, I have AS. Although not a handicap, per se, it is a bad chronic disease. I spent a couple years being bounced around the medical system here until I finally went out of state to get a proper diagnosis.
