New Frederick Store Opening May Draw Thousands

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Officials are bracing for the grand opening of a new Wegmans grocery store in Frederick to draw
thousands on its first day.

Store officials say more than 23,000 people already had signed up in advance for a shoppers card by Thursday. The store is scheduled to open Sunday morning.

There’s one new innovation for the company’s Maryland stores. It had never developed a Maryland-style crab cake, so Wegmans has created one.

Wegmans’ fourth Maryland store is slated to open in September in Bel Air.

    This is not your average grocery store. The prices are much higher than you think. Be prepared to spend more for meats, cheeses breads,etc. The selection of international items is large. that you might not find in another store. It’s like a Neman Marcus selling food, You might pick iup a bargin or 2, but if you are on a buget, this is not the store for you.

    Another high priced “clip store” catering to the upscale. Poor people or on a budget need not come in our doors. Just drive by the parking lot & see all the Bimmers & Benz’s. Too many of the Wegmans brand names also & their prices suck on every day staple items. Meat, fish & poultry along with produce is fresh & the service is very good.
