  • Yeah, Publix? Really? What is wrong with these people. Wegmans, Whole Foods, Trader Joes... all way better than Publix.

    See previous comment about Wegmans being better than ANYTHING ELSE!



  • That was a pretty weak list.

    Yeah, I thought so. Thus why I asked.



  • Wait a sec, we have Trader Joe's here!!



  • I don't like Publix, I go to Winn Dixie.

    Love that book! Technically it's "Because of Winn Dixie" but still.

    Ok...have no idea what that was till I used Google.

    I was referring to Winn Dixie supermarkets, the beef people: https://www.winndixie.com/Pages/Home.aspx

    I know. The name in the book title comes from the supermarket name. I read it in elementary school. LOVED IT!

    Trader Joe's has been here for awhile now. 🙂



  • Some are very true others are very false.

    For Publix its not about the store itself. Its their amazing subs. I refuse to eat at Subway or Firehouse here.

    Wegmans likewise is famous for their subs, unlike Trader Joes or others that we have up here. They bought a sub chain that was very widely respected to have access to their stuff. Their sub shops are enormous.



  • Wegmans now has so much more than just the subs. We now have full restaurants in some of them. I live in a smaller town around here and our local one. Has an Asian food bar, pizza, sushi, American food (usually bbq or fried chicken), pasta bar, vegetarian section, huge salad bar, Friday's is fish fry, Panini bar for lunch each day. Beer and Wine, coffee bar. Fresh cheese and olive bar, oh yeah and Subs too. Then we have a the take out meals too that are in the deli section you can get a full meal for one person with one main dish and 2 sides to take home and heat up for $8.

    Now the nice one in the city has 2 full restaurants the stuff I mentioned above and a full Bar as well.

    This doesn't even begin to describe the types of food that the grocery stores sells as well. 99% of the time you choose the store brand as it is healthier and MUCH better tasting than a name brand anything. We also have huge ethnic food sections as well. It's hard to describe unless you have been in one.

    I have done enough traveling and the closest I have ever seen is a Trader Joes or a Whole Foods and they are about a 1/4 of the size of Wegmans.

    I've got to say Wegmans is probably one of the things that I miss the most about living in Rochester. Not only did they have produce and groceries at a reasonable price but you could get an amazing meal there as well for not much more money. Down in the southern tier we have to make due with Price Chopper or Walmart....

    I've worked for them. I've been in more of their stores than almost anyone. At the time, I worked in 68 of 69 locations plus I've worked at headquarters. They've built two or three since then, but only a couple. Very few people have traveled to all of them.

    Price Chopper is pretty good, but let's face it, not much measures up to Wegmans.
