Danny is already selling wine n his stores not in NYS. Danny is a smart guy. He can spin straw into gold. Always could always would. He put his stores where he wants them and sell what he wants in them. This wine in the supermarkets would be high end at Wegmans it is in all the other stores. Lets where is Danny putting new stores? VA. PA MD all around places surrounded by people with the money. Lots of money.

Chase Pitkin was very successful until Home Depot and Lowes came to town. Chase Pitkin bought product by the trailer load. Lowes and Home Depot buy product by the box car load. Chase Pitkin could not compete price wise. Is it really that much of a surprise? All the Chase Pitkin workers got a job at a Wegmans if they wanted one. How many other companies close and offer jobs to former employees?

Shopping at price rite for food is just like shopping at the dollar store. Knock yourself out. You never know what is gonna be on the shelf. Some of the stuff is outdated merchandise, Chips, Cookies and it's cheap. The Produce at Price Rite is nasty. The Clientele that shops at the Webster store is about 40% migrants from the apple groves, 30% City folk and the rest are just folks that are cheap or poor. You can't use your bank card there cash, stamps or EBT. The store smell and are dirty by comparison. Knock yourself out shopping.

Wegamans can not compete price wise either.
That's why they closed the Brooks ave store across from WalMart.
They can't even beat Tops prices.

Your the one who said """Danny is a smart guy. He can spin straw into gold. Always could always would""""
you were wrong you forgot he failed at Chase Pitkin, you now even admit "he could not complete".

He will fail again, with Wegman's it's only a matter of time.

I don't know what you are basing your opinion on. As far as I know Wegmans has 80 Stores. Some in some very affluent areas, Philly, Fairfax VA Trenton NJ. These stores blow the Rochester stores away. The areas these stores are in money town central. AT Fairfax there is a Lamborghini Dealer next door. It's the only Lamborghini Dealer I have ever seen. That store usually does 1 million a week. Rochester is a dying City. No one wants it, and there is very little to do. Wegmans is not a store that caters to those on the Dole. Stick to Price Rite. If Wegmans closes a store that is depressed so be it. They still own 80 more stores.
