I'm looking forward to seeing one. Not sure if I'd drive to Northborough to see it though.

Is that by the H-Mart? On the other side of 128 from the mall?

They are planning a much smaller Wegmans in Newton but don't think it's going to open any time soon. And the one in Westwood may never happen.

I actually enjoy H-Mart more than Wegmans.

It's on the same road as H Mart - Middlesex Turnpike. It's going to be on the other side of that road. As you travel down Middlesex Turnpike with H Mart on your right, next you pass the Mall on the right then you cross Burlington Mall Road. Third Ave is on the left. That area is an industrial park.

It's beginning to sound like Wegman's is similar to Whole Foods.

GB, I really enjoy H Mart too. I get overwhelmed by the kimchee area. So many choices I don't know which to buy.

It is similar the Whole Foods, but without the focus on "whole foods" if that makes any sense.

I got some pickled bamboo shoots at H-Mart that are out of this world. Next time you are there take a look for them. You wont be sorry.

wegman's produce does not compare to whole foods.

I usually go to Wegman's for their lunch diner. I get a small sushi and ice tea, and it's maybe $9.

I grew up with a wegmans in my town. It is a great place to go when you are looking for natural ingredients. They pretty much brought organics to our town in supermarkets. All that aside, the wegmans in my hometown is mostly a zoo. They constantly have buses that are there in the lunch section and it makes regular shopping very difficult. They also got a liquor license and now the cafe is a bit of a boozefest.

They have quite a large inventory, but it does change pretty regularly as they phase in their own brand of products. Sometimes you can buy something a few times only to find they aren't carrying it anymore and are carrying their own version instead.

When I moved, I really missed our wegmans. Mostly because I didn't realize that produce wasn't fresh all over. They have some great breads, and cheeses as well. They are more expensive than the other grocery stores in the area, but aside from price I don't find them much different than a Giant though.

I prefer Giant, they have a good amount of natural and organic foods with good prices. They also have a great inventory of goods as well. They don't have buses that come for lunch, and it isn't quite as much of a zoo. I still shop at wegmans for hard to find, and things that I like that are just found there.

I think you will like it.

Thank you all for responding with your opinions. I look forward to visiting one of the new Wegmans in my area.
