    I recently discovered there are NY Bagels, which happen to be the best in baltimore.
    Even at 10PM on a Saturday night this store is crowded, and I believe the store employs 800 people.
    Have any of you been to a Wegmans?

    Finally I have arrived.....
    I like Wegmans too. I travel quite often to Central & Western New York and Souther Tier regions. My first choice of picking up dinner during those business trips is at Wegmans if it is available. They typically have hot Chinese food (where you can pick your favorite and they charge you by pound) and salada bar and deli.

    I was not aware they have stores in Maryland.

    My second favorite is Harris Teeter.

    In a false sense of reality...My Mind!
    I live down the road from one (Amherst, NY) and that's where my gf and I do most of the shopping. They also have a local roast beef shop (Charlie the Butcher) that is in there as this makes a nice lunch spot for many.
    Biggest thing is it's always clean, at least the ones I've been in which are five maybe six in the area I live. I knew alot of people that worked there from school as they really try to work with students and their class schedules.
    Over all it's a nice place to shop, fresh stock and good food for lunch or dinner.

    Wegmans is an excellent grocery store! A few of my friends work there, and they're really flexible about scheduling around school, sports, etc. Our family shops only at Wegmans and local mom-and-pop stores.

    I love -- and miss -- Wegmans so much that I occasionally talk about it in threads on this very forum. Do a search for Wegmans and see what you find. :p

    I first came across Wegmans while in college in Scranton, PA., and then later during 4 years in Ithaca, NY. I've never come across such a wonderful grocery store -- the fresh pasta they make -- the fresh meals always available -- the quality of the produce -- the information kiosks ...

    Such that:

    I was wandering my local A&P in greater Hartford yesterday and couldn't find gravy anywhere. I was getting really pissed off -- this cramped store with the obnoxious staff and the gravylessness. But my first thought?

    "If I was in Wegmans, I could just go up to the kiosk and type in gravy. Do these people expect me to know the default location of gravy? If this were Wegmans, I'd have the gravy by now."

    God I miss Wegmans ... :(

    I worked at Wegmans in High School, and they are a great company.. Fantastic Grocery store.

    We have AJ's, Bashas, and the huge mega Safeway and some other nice stores her in AZ.. but nothing exactly like wegmans.

    A lot of people in Moorestown were obsessed with it when it opened, i refused to take part in it. I visited one the other day for the first time and i have to say, while i was impressed at the store's layout and food choices, it was not much more impressive as a market than any other "upscale" market i've been to. The dining section was very neat, food quality good, and overall scene was nice, but to me it just wasn't something to obsessive over like so many other people.

    EDIT: woah, 1500th post!

    I also like the fact that it is extremely clean. They have Purell dispensers everywhere. The bathrooms, they had seat covers, seat cleaners, and purell in the stall, it was like no mens bathroom I have seen.

    Thats the one thing the I use to explain wegmans to people. Its cleanliness and attention to detail. "If you go to wegmans and walk up to any produce product and grab a random piece of fruit it will be completely clean, edible and perfect to buy. Its just a different shopping experience. When you go to any other supermarket you have to hunt for a tomato you would be willing to eat. There are times where I cant find anything other than the bland-gassed junk - while at wegmans every tomato on the shelf is good and there are tons of different tomatoes to choose from.

    I moved from Fairfax, where I had a wegmans right down the street, to Bethesda... where there isn't one at all. I miss getting a 12" sub with EVERYTHING, including what seemed to be the whole turkey... for only $7...

    They have great sushi there too...

    I've actually driven about 40 minutes from Bethesda to Fairfax, just for Wegmans...

    Best grocery store, by far. The office odrers lunch from Wegmans at least 3 times a week- so many choices! They make awesome ceasar salad's, they have awesome pizza, wings, subs, sushi, soup.... I could go on and on. Fantastic all around. Very clean too- and I hear they are a great place to work for.
