An interesting thing about Wegman’s; before they open a store iin a new area, they do EXTENSIVE demographic research, and then they plan the store based on their findings. So, the Wegman’s in Scranton is different from the Wegmans in Wilkes-Barre is different from the Wegman’s in Allentown is different from the Wegmans in Ithaca. One thing that they all share, though, is top notch quality and service.
I was going to order my Christmas prime rib online from Lobel’s, but a week before the holiday I saw DRY-AGED USDA PRIME BEEF in the butcher’s case! It was about HALF the cost of Lobel’s ($13/lb for rib roast, $23/lb for tenderloins, strips, etc). Since I’ve always had great results from the Wegman’s wet-aged beef, I figured the dry-aged from Weg’s would be excellent, too. It’s in the oven right now.
It’s a great store. I drive past two other groceries without even thinking, including a Super Walmart and a small local chain (Carone’s) that is walking distance from my house.
