Wegmans Is Tops In Syracuse.
As far as major chain grocery stores in the Syracuse, Wegmans is the best hands down. I usually shop at the Onondaga, James Street, Liverpool and even Pond Street location. Pond Street was the first Wegmans in the area and opened circa 1968 or 1969. It shows it's age but still has much of Wegmans great products and prices. Although at Wegmans you can find practically every grocery you look for in every ethnic group and beyond, they seem to be replacing many name brands with their own products. From what I've tried the Wegmans products are every bit similar to name brands. Wegmans has an extensive health food section although they vary between stores. Ethnic products from around the world can be definitely found at Wegmans. They also have coffee shops, delis, and sell a variety of prepared foods to go, so needless to say it is a major stop on lunch breaks! Checkouts move pretty quickly for the most part, but nothing is perfect. Wegmans is without a doubt the best grocery store in the Syracuse area.
