Wegmans won the Grocery Store Wars in Rochester... - and the losers: Closed Supermarket chains
My earliest memories of grocery shopping were at Star Markets and pasting the Top Value Yellow stamps in the books when we got home. Eventually Wegmans opened a store on a completely vacant intersection just a little closer to our home in Henrietta, New York, and my family was converted. Star Markets moved into the discount strip mall shopping district a few years later, and eventually bowed to the mighty Wegmans and closed. A Tops Friendly Market, based out of Buffalo, built a store in Henrietta across the street from our Wegmans. The brand new store did well for a while, but finally vacated to open a store closer to the retail hub area a couple miles closer to the Rochester city line. Before Wegmans moved to make room for a megastore just around the same corner, 3 pharmacies, a bank, a tanning salon, and a child care center all occupied the once vacant corners of that intersection. The former Wegmans is now inhabited by a very large "Beers of the World".

- Where will Wegmans be building new stores in the future?
Each year, thousands of people who have visited our store for the first time, or moved to a place without Wegmans, write asking that we build a store in their town. Since we open just two or three new stores each year, it would be impossible to oblig

A possible scenario: an All Day Trip to Wegmans
Wegmans has a fabulous & free in-store childcare facility. You can drop off the kids for one hour increments, but I don't see anything posted about how many times you may do that in a day, as long as you stay in the store. They require you and your kids wear matching event-style wristbands and the childcare attendant hands you you're very own pager.
So check in the kiddies, and go...
Have a Ultra Premium cup of Coffee with any addition you could imagine, with a perfect croissant for quiet, long, long breakfast, then...
Pick up the kids and go shopping for patio furniture, eco-friendly green clothing, shoes, and baby items, or a full kitchen of housewares, then...
Lunchtime: For the kids pick up a submarine sandwich, slice of pizza, or chicken tenders, apples from the counter, or you may add a fruit salad or green salad from the deluxe cold salad bar. Beverages are available too.Add fresh bake cookies if they were good. Hit the full size and luxurious restrooms.
Drop the children off at childcare again, then....
Your lunchtime: Relax during a hot lunch of great Chinese, elegant sushi, or one of the many other lunch time meal. Then...
Pick up the kids, then...
Go grocery shopping in one of the 6 aisles of vegan and health food aisles, a produce department that would fill your average big box pharmacy, visit the full service and first class deli, meat and seafood counters, then...
Complete the day with a gourmet dinner of Bronzed Tilapia with Creole sauce, harvest veggies and Sweet Potatoes and Kale for $6. then... and get the kid their choice or all the lunch menu items of from the hot food bar, although you know they would eat pizza or chicken tenders all day, every day. Then how about......
A supreme raisin bread pudding or fruit tart for dessert, anyone? Just a couple of many bakery and pastry item, but my favorites, and...
Oh, don't forget to have a delicious cup of REAL Cafe Late to finish off the day.
I must be honest... I haven't figured out a way to get the patio furniture to your car since you can't leave the store while you children are in the childcare center, but I'm working on it. :D

Wegmans has the Best Store Brands I've ever tasted!
Bonus: Not too much couponing needed for this shopper!
If Wegmans has a store brand, I buy it. It's that simple.
I like the quality Wegmans brands much better as there is usually a better selection than the national brands. You can't lose since the great taste and saving are what's important in this tight economy, at least in our house.
The first rate Wegmans products shown in this picture is just a small selection from my refrigerator with a couple of other products in my kitchen. I could literally write an entire lens with all the Wegmans foods and products in my home.
Shown: (Left to right and front to back)
Yogurt, Dill pickle relish, Strawberry preserves, Green manzanilla olives, Ketchup, my favorite Roasted Garlic spaghetti sauce, liquid hand dishwashing soap, Spring water, Mayonnaise, one of the many awesome Salad dressings, Mustard. Orange Juice with calcium, Diet cola, and my favorite Lite Caffeine Coffee.
