You can eat (and drink) while you shop

Sip on a latte from the coffee bar as you wander the aisles. Then, before you leave, enjoy a bite to eat from one of their many hot food bars offering everything from sushi to comfort food. And if you want a slice of pizza? They have a pizzeria for that, too.

Join the club for even more rewards

Like most grocery stores, Wegmans offers a customer loyalty program known as the Shoppers Club. You can swipe each time you shop to build up savings for future purchases. Bonus: You can also put “WDollars” on your card which act as cash whenever you’re checking out (so you don’t even need your debit card).

Wegmans might not be for everyone, but there’s no argument that it’s a supermarket in a league of its own. So grab your phone (for the app, of course), your grocery list and your appetite. Next, check out these 29 things your grocer won’t tell you.
