Noted: Wegmans opens four stores a year -- and gets 4,000 requests a year for stores from all over the country. Also: It's most recently expanding into North Carolina. Also also: Wegmans is apparently Millenial clairvoyant and can make all your dreams come true. Also also also: Everyone who shops there gets a free unicorn. [Adweek] [via Deanna]

Earlier: Wegmans? Really? Please explain.


Ahhhhh I LOVE Wegmans!!!

The only way I could get excited for yet another grocery store (yes, even Wegmans) is if they decided to build where no other stores exist. Sadly, no one has the courage to do this, and if we ever do see a Wegmans in Albany, it will be next to a Price Chopper, which is across the street from a Hannaford, which is next to a ShopRite.

Your post has a slight factual inaccuracy; unicorns at Wegman's are BOGO, not outright gratis.
