Yes, I am know I am behind the times on this, but I finally got to the new Collegeville Wegmans store today.
I've got to say I like it. I'll admit that I don't have the awesome catalina deals like we are used to at Acme, but the shelf prices seemed very good, the variety of products available is amazing. The store is somewhat of a maze of departments that our other local stores truly can not be compared to. My girls loved the samples being given out, and also enjoyed the train running around the ceiling area of the store.
Personally, I've got to say that I LOVE that it is a 24 hour store! I am a night owl, and I really miss having my Acme be a 24 hour store.
I did not check out the Cafe or Pub - perhaps we can get some couponers together there?
I did take advantage of the spend $25 get a turkey at $.29 a pound deal. Please don't harass me for being crazy, my family LOVES turkey, and how over can you seriously get that much meat for $.29 a pound? This turkey is currently defrosting in my fridge, and I will cook it later this week, then I can pick up my free Acme turkey and put that in my freezer later in the week. If I can find room in a freezer (I have 3 this shouldn't be such a hard thing to do, but it is), I may even pick up another turkey or 2!
One thing I will say for those who have not made their way to Wegmans yet, you need to go to the customer service desk in order to get your card. Being a new store, I expected that they would be available at the check out lanes. A kind manager did scan his card so they could go ahead and complete my order with the discounted pricing though.
