My uncle is the CFO at wegmans and he told me that wegmans is coming to utica. He said they're preparing a blueprint of where they're putting it. It's gonna be off the wheeler avenue arterial. It's crazy they're gonna buy the houses across the street and make it a parking lot. It's supposed to help Utica's economy. I fricking love wegmans and he's gonna get me a manager position there.

Wegmans is NOT interested in the Utica area. It does not meet the population requirements nor the income requirements. They are opening mega Wegmans down south in Virginia and other states.

This thread is now over. Please stop inventing rumors.
yeah right

Wegmans would be very nice and not impossible. They compete many places with the likes of Hanaford or Price Chopper. they would be a great competitor for the area.

If Wegman's had any interest in the Oneida County area they would have built many years ago. Do you believe this area is becoming more attractive to Wegman's due to our dwindling population and escalating tax rate?:) LOL

Now if someone said they were considering a store in New Hartford, I could believe that but not Utica.

Besides that, where would it go? Certainly NOT W Utica, that's for sure!

Staying on topic, the original post refers to wegmans coming to UTICA. MY point was if they did come to the area, it would be in NH. And your point is what?

In Utica, a private event occurs, within minutes, the whole town knows. Wegman's reviews local Topix content before they invest, judging by our content...never happening!

That will never work! I love Wegmans but, it is a high end grocery store that will never do well in Utica. People cannot afford it.

Wegmans in Utica? That would be nice for Utica and the people would love it, but I can't see it happening. Weggies is expanding to the south and west and in growing areas. Sadly, my hometown has seen better days.

Maybe a Price Rite will come to U-Town. That's a great discount supermarket chain. There are three of them in Rochester and I think they're looking to expand.
