Wegmans just opened a new store in Henrietta NY replacing one of their oldest remaining stores. My Mother-in-Law Karen is the Floral manager and has worked at the Henrietta store for over 30 years. naturally the local news wanted to know what she had to say about the new store.
For those of you who don’t know what wegmans is it’s a grocery store. It’s a grocery store that people will drive hours to get to. It’s a grocery store that’s privately owned. It’s a grocery store that college kids hang out in at 4am. It’s a grocery store that’s a small European market in one building. I could go on, because I have worked there just like most Rochestarians. In fact I met my wife there. It’s a community staple.
So you can see that it actually is a big deal when they open a new store in the area and close an old one.
RIP Store #21.
