A Love Affair With Wegmans Begins
A crazy thing happened to me this weekend. I fell madly in love with you. I know what you're thinking. Countless people told me to come see you. You even sent me dozens of e-mails, begging for a chance. But I stayed committed to Giant. What can I say? Giant is closer and quite honestly, I courted other grocery stores and Giant was the cheapest. But now I realize that cheap isn't always better.
I finally decided to see you after that one e-mail last week. The one that talked about how you were lowering your prices and how you were trying to save me some money. I appreciate that Wegmans. I really do. I came on Sunday morning, promising to stay 45 minutes to get to know you. But you swept me off my feet from the moment I walked through the door and was face to face with your produce. And I just couldn't tear away from your warm embrace, the dim lights, the nice employees, the cordial customers and that charming little train that kept zooming around above my head.
After discovering your beautiful produce, I turned the corner and found myself in your marketplace section. I didn't even know where I was but I liked it. There were prepared meals, fresh baked breads and muffins, even a place to sit down and have someone prepare a lunch or dinner for us. I stopped by your fresh fish counter and got some salmon for $8.99 a pound. And then I quickly ditched my plan to get frozen shrimp and got a pound of fresh shrimp for $7.99. I passed by your wines and picked up two bottles, one for under $8 and the other for under $6. And then I grabbed a 5-pound package of chicken breast for a little more than $13. I was bleary-eyed and crazy by this point but I knew I didn't want to leave.
I spent more than an hour going through your aisles buying the stuff that I usually get at Giant and more. You offered so much at lower prices and some were the same price as Giant, which I'm OK with. It's just that some things were a little more expensive. Not cool Wegmans, but I can overlook that. We'll just have to work through this. You promised in that little e-mail last week that you were going to work on lowering your prices so I'll be patient. If you stick to your promise, I'll come back, even though it will be a long-distance relationship.
P.S. Let's not tell Giant about this.
