Wegmans is dominating. They’re welcoming. They’re fun. They’re innovative. And now, for the first time, they’re cheaper to shop at than Wal-Mart.
That is, unless you shop in the prepared food section.
Wegmans can sell eggs for $0.58 because so many people overpay for food at the hot food bar. They overpay for subs, pizza, sushi, coffee, and the latest bottled-water fad. Wegmans can take a loss on its eggs because its prepared food section is so profitable.
The irony is that it’s better for your waistline and better for your wallet to stay out of the prepared food section.
By all means, pile on that Asian food when your team goes to Wegmans after a game, but in real life it’s better to treat that section for what it is: a treat.
