Danny use to even get caught shoplifting and he would always give the arresting officers a hard time, swearing and everything.
But now the drug addict is tooo good to have a store in the City.

I'm asking if you have proof, or if you are just trying to slander someone more successful than you.

Anyone that knows the Wegman's family will tell you. I'm sure any old cop'er will tell you.
You must be very young not to know that Danny boy has a bad history.

Are you saying that "successful" means someone who receives the belongings of their "hard working dead father" and then squanders them?

OMG - Is there a trouser mouse on the loose? They don't eat much, so Frank can still afford to shop at Wegman's.

Sure glad Wegman's stopped selling Rhino Horn powder, Shark Fin Soup, Kiwi Eggs, Mock Turtle Soup, Pate Foi de Gras, Horse and Dog meat, Haggis, Bush Meat, Tuna with Dolphin, Tiger P**** Soup, Albatross Eggs, Whale Blubber, Elephant Foot Umbrella stands, etc.

Wegman's has built a regional, five state chain of niche grocery stores on the profits from the Rochester area market. If you look at the prices in the other regions you'll see that the Rochester are prices are the highest. We pay to have those groceries shipped to the other market areas. This has been the practice since they opened their first Syracuse store in 1969, after breaking a promise to the grocery chains that kept Wegmans in business after their catastrophic warehouse fire back in the 50's. Judging by their ADS they are very much out of touch with todays economic reality. Buy their "loss leaders" and shop wisely.

I believe the first stores were in the CITY of ROCHESTER. So, you'd have to say that it was the CITY, and not the suburbs, that paid for all other stores to be built.

Notice, that the only Wegmans left in the city proper is on East Ave. "The White Folk" store, that caters to Park Ave, N.Winton neighborhoods.

Gone is the original at Culver/Merchants, also Driving Park, Mt.Hope, old Hudson Ave, Midtown Plaza.

And if you have shopped East Ave in the evening, you may get accosted by the homeless hanging out in the parking lot. The security guard hides inside the store. This Wegmans is probably the reason that the Hess station got robbed. This last city Wegmans brings some real crud to the area of East and Winton.

A few weeks ago I was there, and while walking from my car to the store, a big rat was running around the parking lot and under cars, a few woman were screaming. lol

I've never seen a rat at any other City stores.
Wegman's needs to clean the store up.

When the unions force Wegmans to pull out of Rochester, then they will be saying "We did our job...On to the next company to force out"! Why does everyone think they have to live in the lap of luxury!

Did you all see the free advertising Danny got in the business section of the Sunday D&C. Stated 70% of their customers want wine sold in the store...So they asked 10, and 7 answered? Most of Danny's answers sounded weak...some were just yes or no, and some mande no sense at all. This is the great mind behind the dynasty. NO - Bob was the great mind....Danny is the heir. And I think his daughters were raised by their mother after the divorce...maybe that is why they sound more intelligent! I wish he would go with Tom G. to Florida and then this state could be rid of two mouthpieces that have no clue about the average working stiff.

They need to stop paying their Union Truck drivers and warehouse workers $29.00 an hour. The marlin's will not sink Wegman's but the Union will just like GM. I am sure Wegman's was loosing money on this product. They could care less about fish population. They better stop paying truck drivers $29.00 an hour or they will not be selling anything soon. The average truck driver makes $14.00 an hour. That must be why we pay 20% more for products at Wegmans.
hahaha;) who tell you average truck driver makes $14.00? you think truck driving is easy job? Nooooooooo

I know 10 drivers at Wegmans that make over $100,000 a year. Fact. Wegmans will get its ass kicked by the competition. Fact. The business model that Wegmans now has in place is to close many stores in the Rochester, Buffalo and Syracuse area in the next 8 years. They can not make money here. The East Ave store is dead. They will not rebuild it.
Your right they will Never rebuild the East Ave store... lol Do you have any Stock Market Tips "Bart" ?
