What a joke. Pink Slim, Muslim Checkouts, No Cigarettes, most recalled items, and highest prices in the nation.

How much did Danny have to pay for this story?

Will Wegmans open a store in Dearborn Michigan? It's 40% Arab. They'd love one there.

WalMart/Sams may be last but they are killing Wegmans in price competition and name value products. They are the largest retailer in the world with 9000 stores. Sams Club has 600 stores. Aldi has 8000. Wegmans has a 70 stores. stores, Big Deal.

I went to the Wegmans in Western Lights to do my shopping once, and after waiting in a lengthy line to check out a young man literally shouldered me aside to cut in front of me when it was my turn to check out.
When I protested, he said, "That's OK; I work here." he then said that he just wanted to cash his check, which screwed up the cash register, and we had to wait for someone to come and clear it.
Afterwards, I complained to the manager. He just acted like it was no big deal, and blew me off.
There are too many other grocery stores in the area for me and my lady friend to put up with being treated like that. Green Hills personnel are ALWAYS helpful and respectful. I have had very good experiences at Topps as well as Price Chopper also.
Number one in customer service? The only thing Wegmans might be number one in is expensive.
Your two posts sound like alot of B.S. to me. Everyone knows if you want to cash a check you have to go to the front desk.

Wegmans is going down hill fast.

Aside from all the bashing that's been cooking here lately, Wegmans is still a superior grocery store. The quality is usually top-notch. I will continue to shop there, though I still shop at Aldis, Price Rite, The Public Market, BJ's and wherever I can get the best quality & quantity for my money.

I refuse to shop at Wegmans. My lady friend is extremely disabled from MS and had a medical transport take her to Wegmans in Dewitt to do her shopping. Once there, she asked the manager for assistance in her shopping since she couldn't reach the items in the top or bottom shelves and her hands shook too badly to get them even if she could reach them. He told her that he was sorry but they don't do that anymore and left her!
She had to get another customer to get the change out of her purse and call the transport company to come back and pick her up. The driver asked her where her groceries were and she told him she couldn't do her shopping and told him what happened. The company, Speedy Medical Transport, gave her, her money for the ride back.
Sounds like this individual should see if any friends like yourself could help her with her shopping instead of blaming others. She obviously has medical issues and should have an advocate with her to help her. So step up and do the right thing and stop complaining.

You hit the nail on the head.

He is closing every store in low income areas. He don't care about them people. Plus they can't afford his over-priced crap anyway.

Price-Rite and Tops are awesome!

Well when this happened we were just friends and I was at work. Since then we have gotten married, I changed careers, and went to part time so I could be with her and take care of her myself.
Thank you for your interest.
Excellent -- In the end you did the right thing. Look folks....People love to complain about private for profit companies and are "outraged" at things these private companies do. The answer is to find an alternative place to do your shopping.

I have to laugh. For the few bitter people who had to post about their bad experiences at Wegmans and how much they have to spend, they all seem to fail to see that most every Wegmans has a full parking lot (Try to find a parking spot before the holidays) and the stores are packed full of people shopping. So for the few here that have posted how much they hate Wegmans and they will never shop there again. I say GOOD. Leave and donít come back. They rest of us will enjoy one of the top companies in the country and you can crawl off to where ever it is you want to shop. Good bye.

Its not about full parking lots it is about market share. I now spend 80% less time/money at Wegmans and split my shopping between Target, WalMart, Aldi's and Price Rite, Dollar Tree and Sams Club. I am sure most are doing the same thing. The lot is still full but the baskets are not at Wegmans. The rest of us are smart. We are saving a buck but shop[ping around. You fools keep overpaying for your products. The Lot is full at WalMart, Target, Aldi's, Pricerite and Sams as well? This tells me nothing. Price rules. I have noticed Price Rite and Aldi's has been full of elderly as of late. The economy keeps pushing people to save money, Wegmans does not get it. Collen is in the Ozone with the Muslims.

sounds like your friend should just hurry up and die so she won't be in my god damned way when i'm trying to quickly shop and check out. i have an idea for the both of you, why dont you push her into traffic on the 81 and follow her and see if you both can cross the freeway frogger style.

“and how does this effect you?”

people like you are the ones that need to hurry up and die. People that do not care about others and their problems or that think you are the only one that matters. You know I take that back. I don't wish anyone to die. Even you deserve to live. Even though I think you are a piece of crap and I know I'm not the only one!

Wegmans was probably fed up with all the losses from shoplifting and grazing and employee theft.

Youíre right. A full parking lot might mean something else. I for one do shop at Wegmans and the people in Wegmans (The ones I see) are shopping and their baskets are full. I personally feel that going from one to another store (or in your story) four different stores to accomplish what I can do at one store seems like a waste of time and fuel. I find my saving by doing one stop shopping. I buy what I need and do not get hooked on the sales or the ďEnd of aisleĒ items. Same as at the checkout, I do not take part in the impulse items. All I can say is there are a lot of bitter people out there who are pissed off at a private company making money. This is nothing but jealousy. If it was them and their company, they would tell all of the naysayers to go pound salt. Itís a free world. Shop where ever you want. Spend your money however you want. If you want to drop it at Wegmans, do it. If you want to spend your money driving from store to store then do it. Just stop bashing someone or a company for making it in todayís world. If you are so bitter for their success, shop somewhere else and leave to rest of us alone.

Wegmans has become a status symbol for the rich in NY go to most wegmans and you find a store full of million$ soccer moms who don't care about prices since they have there husbands credit cards. There are plenty of alternatives to wegmans in NY but for some reason theres a stigma attached to anyone who shops at Price rite, Aldi's, Wal-mart. and etc... had my cousin tell me once "I love my daughter I won't buy sub par food from those stores I only shop at wegmans". People are dumb the USDA inspects all food and wegmans purchases food from the same places the cheaper stores do...

well times are changing and there are less jobs, no retirement -pensions, no health insurance, less pay, many unemployed, no safty nets and even the rich will be effected soon and forced to cut spending. The economy is not recovering unless you blieve the BS the Fed and US Government puts out their. Wegmans will be the first to be effected and the most effected.

I'll bet most of you have never lived outside of Rochester or out of state. We are lucky to have Wegmans. Many other places in the US really SUCK when it comes to price, quality, Cust svc, variety, freshness, quantity, cleanliness.
Whenever I've had out of town visitors stay, we go to Wegmans and they are amazed.
Haven't heard any major celebrities go on Letterman, Leno, Ferguson, Kimmel, Fallon or Kelli/Kathy Lee and talk about Aldi, Tops, PriceRite, Big M.
Haven't seen those stores have their name brand on an episode of "The Office" (though it has gone downhill since Michael left).

Just goes to show, people want to piss&moan. People in other parts of the country complain about their supermarket chains too.

Employees should not be screwing up the line cashing Wegmans PAYROLL checks. Its bad enough we have the dumb Welfare EBT debit card idiots that forget their pin or go over the limit and then have to take items out of the order making us all WAITE. The people that pay cash have to put up with this crap all the time. Wegmans employees should go to the service desk for check cashing - period. I blame the upper management for not having a policy.
