Thanks Russ. I missed that post.

Do you think when you come down to TV you could stop at Trader Joe's to pick up an order for me?

Hi Russ,

The one I usually go to is off of I 84 in Danbury. You could take I 84 on your way down here.

Would also like a Sweet Tomatoes here and Charlie Brown.

Sweet Bay is part of the Hannaford Chain, or perhaps it is the other way around, you can not compare them to Wegman's. Wegman's is offers more items and specialty areas and prices are better.

I have shopped in both Hannaford and Wegman's.

Now if we all could get our wishes granted. That would be great.

Please tell me what city you live in that you claim wegmans is cheaper than Shop-rite. I am from Mt. Laurel, NJ and we had to laugh at this post as we have shopped many times at both stores and find it opposite your claims.

Hi,

In New Paltz, NY ShopRite is higher. They have done studies on prices at this store compared to other ShopRites and this store continually comes in higher.

We have shopped in Wegman's from Binghamton to Geneseo, NY and they all have been consistently lower.

In New Paltz another chain has come in, I do not know if another price comparison has been done.

Where we live many people do not have cars, college students and senior citizens, and the workers at the local orchards are taken to ShopRite. I think that is why the prices are higher.

But i'll ask!

Hi Russ,

Not to sure the pilot would be willing - so here is the list of Trader Joe's in the Boston area.

Do you live near any of them? Have you ever been to one? Great place to shop, have high quality food items usually at a price lower than a gourmet or specialty shop.

I have found items there that I haven't seen in any other store.

If you have never been there, go when you can.

Best,

Hyacinth Bucket

I feel your pain HB, I miss Trader Joe's in Arlington, VA soooo much. I emailed them maybe a year ago, and asked them to please consider coming here. They replied that they can't open a store here, because they don't have a distribution center in FL. SweetBay doesn't even come close to being as good as TJ's!!

HB - You must own stock in this company. :joke:

I'll try to check one out but none are anywhere near Norton, MA which is closer to Providence, RI than Boston.

Ok, I got it and can see why Wegmans would be cheaper in NY, since his home is on the lake by Canandaigua,NY. (Part of Finger Lakes)

When his stores open out of state his prices get higher like Publix down here.

We would like to see an Indian restaurant in or near the Villages...for the moment one has to drive to Ocala (one small restaurant...but very good) or Orlando (no experience there)...are we alone?

Have you had a terrific corn beef on rye lately?

A Jason's Deli would be a wonderful addition!
