Very smart not to mess with the Golub's. Just ask Hannaford, which is barely hanging on in the Capital Region.

There WAS and agreement. Recently Golub and Wegmans were both fined for doing so as it violates laws relating to competative prices and denying the public a choice. Golub purchased old P&C markets in Syracuse and Utica (Wegman Territory) to avoid another fine. Wegmans will build here and crush Golub and Hannaford.. Just ask Tops and the fomer Star Market what they did to them. Check out the new store going up in Cario. I'm sure you'll find its going to be a Wegmans

Thats what I heard. I did some remodeling work in the old p&c stores that PC bought, for change over. And all their stores and main office. Now that golub dumped us for a cheaper company, I don't shop at their stores.
