Please don't turn this into an Alec Baldwin, David Letterman or Cher bashing thread. It's about Wegmans, Thanks. Link If you don't know what Wegmans is it's the greatest supermarket chain in the world, yes the world. Baldwin's description is a little misleading. He makes it sound like a Costco or BJ's Wholesale kinda place. It's a supermarket just so far above the rest it's pathetic. I've always felt kinda geeky when trying to explain Wegmans to people I've met down at my sisters when the subject comes up. I mean who really gets that excited about a grocery store. I'm glad to see that there are more people that are like me when it comes to Wegmans. My sisters best friend moved from NJ about 6 years ago and Wegmans came up in conversation and very excitedly she says; "Oh I can't wait til they put a Wegmans here! (Hanover, PA) They had one in NJ and I really miss it." What is it about Wegmans that inspires such emotion other than they're a great grocery store? I used to think it's because they started in Rochester and I love this city but when people from NJ are gaga over them there's more to it. This is from a message board poster on the Albany vs Rochester (Buffalo, Syracuse, Ontario: buy, organic, living in) The information about Cher is accurate. The post is from 2007. Wow what did you get dumped by a Wegmans checkout girl? Wegmans is the most amazing grocery store in the world and blows away anything else out there...here's a testimonial: stars come into Rochester and visit the Monroe Ave store and rant how they want one in Beverly Hills......Cher was here two summers ago and couldn't believe the selection of produce they had. That's what Weggies does best: brings the entire world to our doorstep. No better than Price Chopper or Stop and Shop???? It's them and every other grocery store in existence combined...... I'd be interested in what other people outside of NYS, who have Wegmans in their area, think of this place. Does it inspire the same sense of amazement in your area too? :waitasec: If so why do you think that is? It seems it's becoming a cultural icon. The people from Wegmans were caught totally off guard by Baldwin's story on Letterman last night.
