I get too overwhelmed in Wegmans. Seems like high quality stuff but just can't deal with the crowds and the layout of the store.Marginal quality at higher than average prices. I'll pass. Prefer Market Basket, Price Chopper and Shaws. Would be all over Wegmans if they had one closer to home.
Ah. Si! Grande Porque!Big Y for the win
The big problem I have with the Taunton one is the unfathomable laziness of the customers. You can barely drive in the parking lot because there are hundreds of shopping carts strewn about the parking lot. I even watched someone who was parked next to a cart corral load up her car and then shove the cart into the next parking space before getting in her car and driving off instead of walking 10 steps to put the cart back where it belongs.I'm a Hanny man, myself. Although it's b/c my local Hanny has a lot of good stuff. The one in Lakeville? Notsomuch. Thin on the produce department. Ditto for meat. It's a shell of the Taunton store.
Only complaint I have about MB is their produce. I don't know if it's just the Gloucester store, but the quality seems to be hit or miss many times. Aside from that I don't have any complaints.thank god for Market Basket!
I have a stop and shop nearby to my work site, and have been using it more and more. The quality is not bad, the bakery is much better than MB's, but the prices are pretty high. I am assuming Stop and Shop knows this fact, and simply can not raise their prices any more and also stay in business....hence the breakdown in union negotiations.
It seems to be a common thing. I have only spent any time in the sandwich ma and seabrook nh stores and they both seem to have this problem. I don't usually buy meat there either because of an old bad experience but from what people tell me it was probably a fluke.Only complaint I have about MB is their produce.

Yup. Grocery stores used to be somewhere for teenagers to work after school and on the summers. As long as they got minimum wage they were fine.Just went in and got my afternoon snack. As I was walking in some lady yelled "We're on strike...no one is in there to help you!". My response was "So everything is running normally then?"
Place was a ghost town...got a muffin and diet coke, self check out, in and out in 2.5 minutes....BEST STOP AND SHOP EXPERIENCE EVER!
