- Our Wegmans will finally have a sushi bar by Mother's Day
- The Nature's Marketplace section has been expanded
- Aisles shortened by inserting a break in the middle of each aisle
Anyway, one of the basic items I needed to pick up today was peanut butter. This used to be located across from cereal. I couldn't find it in cereal. I looked in the next two (four with the aisle breaks) aisles for it. I found hot fudge and other sundae toppings, but not peanut butter. I think I spent almost five minutes going up and down aisles looking for this staple. Eventually, I broke down and asked an employee. She directed me to aisle 10 and told me to "turn right" when I got there. Peanut butter and jelly products are now located in the snack aisle near bulk food, which was moved to accommodate the larger Nature's Marketplace.
I watched other shoppers wandering around with the lost sheep look on their faces. What is normally a highly enjoyable experience for me became almost stressful. And of course I forgot to pick up a store directory to look over so I could avoid this next weekend.
I'm thinking the Jamestown/Lakewood shoppers could have used a little "Get To Know Your Wegmans!" video like they created for the new store in Potomac, VA.
