Wegman's Northboro is opening this weekend. I may give them a week to "get the kinks out", but what should I be OTLOF? I live about one half hour away so won't be doing my weekly shopping there, but have been caught up in the hype. Fun time of year to stock the pantry, so............. let me know what they're famous for.

    whatever you want pretty much..
    Over 300 types of cheese...
    700 varieties of fruits/veggies
    2500 wines
    600 beers
    Kosher deli
    Bakery is excellent
    Charcuterie counter
    Zwiegels hots are really good and not available in this area. Try the White ones..
    make your own trail mix station...
    The bulk food area is fun..

    The wegmans generic brand items are excellent and as cheap as anywhere.

    Maybe have lunch there and try one of their subs with their special dressing/homemade rolls...
    Thai Bar
    Chicken wing bar
    Indian bar
    dimsum bar
    medeteranian bar with 100+ types of olives/hummus's etc..

    Im very excited for it but will be staying away on Sunday. People will be camping out Sat night and they will most likely have shuttle buses running to remote parking... too crazy for me..

      Chowette, may I'll bump into you...will also be there sometime in the first week :)

      We've shopped at the one in Pittsford NY, and I have to heartily recommend the apple fritters. They are awesome!

        Take a list. Keep your purse tightly closed. Keep your hands on the cart. Don't look to left or right. Just kidding, at least the last one. The entrance will be very noisy with lots of hard surfaces reflecting conversation and cart clatter, so already you're off balance. Beware of the wiles of Wegmans.

                They make a terrific chicken sausage with pesto and feta. It's often in short supply here, so grab it if you see it. It does freeze.

                  Since there was already another active Wegman's thread on the Boston board, we've locked this one. You can find the other thread here:
