I have to say, Wegman's is truly the best supermarket in Erie. The produce is top rate. I've never gotten anything bad out their produce section, unlike other grocery stores around. Their bakery is wonderful. I love the huge array of breads to chose from. The sub shop makes the best subs in town, fresh and delicious. Very affordable too! I don't eat at the Chinese bar they have, simply because I do think it's much cheaper to go to one of the many Chinese buffets that are nearby, but I have had a few items off the Chinese bar and they're very good.
The sales they run are usually pretty good and pretty much keep the prices on level with the other stores around. The service is where they stand out. I truly have NEVER had a bad clerk or service person while shopping at Wegman's. Any time I have a problem, they quickly and with a smile, fix it. Forget your Wegman's card? The service desk quickly looks it up for you to use or if you're simply using it for the discounts, they come up to the register and read the store copy so you get the discounts.
I can't say enough about the pick up service. While many stores say they have 'take out service' they generally look at you like you have a third eye when you say "Can I have someone take this out for me?". I have a bad back and there is nothing more wonderful than knowing I can simply say "this is for take out please". They slap a sticker on your bag, give you a matching sticker and off your groceries go. The young men there to load your car up never seem to mind and are always very careful to load things properly. A small tip each time I use them lets them know I truly appreciate their service.
Wegman's is all about service and the customer! This can't truly be said about any other store in Erie. So even if it means a few cents more on a few items.. it's well worth it!
