We went to the Montvale store recently and I was SO disappointed. I went to college in Rochester and Wegman’s was THE SHIT back then. We favored the “Superwegs” in Pittsford, which was their flagship store, but even at smaller inner city locations, the selection was absolutely incredible and the prices very reasonable. I was super excited to hear about the Harrison store, but Montvale is also convenient for us, so win-win, I was hoping.
Anyway, when I walked into the Montvale store, I was absolutely shocked at the disorganization and preponderance of Wegman’s brand products, to the exclusion of all else. I almost felt like I was in Stew Leonard’s, so limited was the selection. I ended up having to stop at a nearby Stop & Shop to complete my shopping, because I needed a few name-brand items (nothing esoteric, just everyday brands!) that were nowhere to be found, plus a couple of produce items that were either unavailable or half rotten at Wegs. I expect this when I shop at Stew’s, because that’s part of their schtick, but not at Wegs. I’m terribly disappointed that they have made the corporate decision to go down this path, and I won’t bother stopping in again.
