Wegmans is saying the idea for the sign that said "No Pork or Alcohol Products" was the idea of a Front End Manager, and not corporate. That he was trying to make her feel more comfortable.
That they have no way of accomodating the wishes and beliefs of all their thousands of cashiers.
They say the Gates cashier is now in a different Dept.

Is this "different department" the unemployment line? It should be.

How long before wegmans announces that they're going to close the lyell ave store? I bet they'll do it just to avoid lawsuits. I saw 6 months, max.

See !? You can make Wegmans back down.

We flooded them with calls and messages when a few Reich Wing Tards wanted them to stop showing the commercials with Alec Baldwin - we got them back on the air.

We protested their buying groundmeat w/ pink slime and have stopped using it.

Now we told them we will NOT be told what checkout line to buy our beer and bacon.

Aldi's and Walmart are killing them in gates. That is why they closed the Chili/Brooks store. Its now how you place on The Consumer Reports ranking its how much money you make and how much you sell. That is why you are in business, to make money. People love to save money and its not at Wegmans..

Wegmnans makes Mommy Life.

The media shapes the story like it's a great thing and oh doesn't everyone thinks it's a great idea? No, we don't.

Wegmans is considered the best throughout North America, Europe and most parts of the world.
I would like to thank them for bringing attention to the disastrous problems any business can / will face if they hire Muslims

The best according to who? I think Whole Foods and Publix are the best. They did not ask me and any of my friends. Wegmans did not bring Attention to this Muslim problem but caused it and did nothing to stop it. Thousands of e-mails AND PISSED OFF CUSTOMERS did something to make Wegmans do something. They could have just not hired the Muslim who had so many issues with employment. Let her work at a garden store where there are no issues. I can not imagine going to work for someone and telling them what I will or will not do and how I will do it. I would tell her we do not have a position here that you would fit in with our company goals and direction.

Poor Robert Wegman. He just rolled over in the grave. Collen as the new leader? I think not. A leader is visible and takes charge. Makes new things happen. Inspires people. She just does not have it. I think about Antonio Perez and his leadership skills? Another joke. This fool is still in charge of the Titanic. Another poor leader that should have never been put in charge of a company. He just went along for the ride and never ran the company and gave it direction. So now there is no future for Kodak. One person can make or break a company.

Wegmans is going backwards. Not forward. I am 100% sure they have lost customers and market share.

Don't punish the cashier. If the front end manager acted on his own, he meeds to find another job.

Her family honor-killed and beheaded her when her scarf accidently fell off, so it is not an issue anymore. ISIS sent a lettr to the family to say, "job well done".

That poor girl. I didn't know that. Where's the story? I couldn't find it on YouTube. What did Louise Slaughter say about it? Is she from Newark? How often does this happen? I think ISIS should stay out of it.
