POLL: Is Wegmans Hurting Village Centers?
Wegmans became a regional destination when it opened in Columbia this year, so how is that affecting the other local grocers and stores?
Wegmans opened in Columbia back in June, and it instantly became a regional destination for customers looking for a unique shopping experience.
But when Columbia was founded, each village was designed to be mostly self-contained, with grocery stores and other shops in each of the village centers.
So, with the addition of Wegmans, Patch asks Howard County residents whether they will continue shopping at their local grocery store, or whether the Wegmans experience is worth the commute.
