Wegmans Price Chopper Agreement
I have just moved from Rochester to Albany and apart from the super wegmans pittsford, the ordinary neighborhood of wegmans are nothing special, their prices are not compared to price-choppers and the quality of the food is at best equal price Chopper. The smoke and mirrors on the look of the shop will never be an asset for people saving money, except who buys one of those greedy crap in Pittsford anyway? Forget Wegmans in the Capitals neighborhood keep the Choppers Prices and get us a Whole Foods. Note: Final accounts do not include prices for items from the store`s brand (if not listed) or for items of an alternative brand or size. I also grew up in West NY and I grew up with Wegmans, I remember my older brother working for her when he was at HS, and he absolutely loved this place, I remember he was also working there through part of the university. In the early 90s, we moved to Albany, I still remember my parents racing HATED at Price Chopper and Hannaford, when we moved here… I`ve even worked for Price Chopper in the past, and I have to say Wegmans makes them lower their hand. No competition! So how do you choose? Often, it`s the price that counts. Everyone wants the best deal, and in that sense, we visited each of the 10 major chains and conducted an unserist price survey for 25 common foods trying to crown a king of the NY Upstate. That`s ridiculous. Wegman`s would topple Price Chopper and Hannaford over price, quality and choice. I moved to Albany 3 years ago, and I hate buying food at one of the local chains, and my food bills are always higher because the store brand options are of lesser quality and diversity.
Wegman spoiled me for all the grocery stores. Competitive pressure can be good for consumers if it lowers prices and it can be bad for retail if it lowers prices. A store in the saturated area of Schenectady has finally withdrawn this year, but the pressure will be soon: another store is waiting for the building permit. “Albany loves the mega-project. It applies to an aquarium or convention center – developments with huge price tags and potentially significant impacts,” Churchill wrote. Of course, I generalize a little, because you can do big projects in Troy and Schenectady (Casino!) in 2000. and small projects in Albany. But overall, we`re just saying that Troy is happy to meet singles, schenectady goes double, and Albany swings for fences – and makes a little too much noise. Seriously, the so-called gentleman`s chords come to an end, and if Chopper really wanted to fire a shot, they would first shoot m32 stores in Syracuse, Binghamton, Scranton or Central Mass.
I don`t think there`s a big conspiracy that keeps Wegmans from moving east of Syracuse. Instead, Wegmans and Price Chopper are closely managed family businesses that have agreed to stay out of each other`s sandbox. This agreement is also an implicit threat… Enter my territory and see what happens. Wegman`s expansion surrounds Price Chopper`s territory. This keeps Price Chopper included in the NEW/NEW-ENGLAND East Zone, while Wegmans continues to expand. I think Wegmans will finally have the resources to force the problem with Price Chopper, either buy the business or start doing business there. To continue to speculate, I think if Stewart ever considered selling the business to either Price Chopper or Wegmans, it could really have fun effects.
