The enthusiasm extends to the most loyal buyers called Wegmaniacs. When Buffalo Bills offensive striker Richie Incognito renewed his contract a few years ago to stay on the team, he tweeted: "He won't lie ... Wegmans was a big part of me signing in Buffalo. And how Wegmans opened a local school organizing a musical about it in his first store in Massachusetts.
Brooklyn offers Wegmans a great opportunity: The 2.8 million people who live within five miles of the Navy Yard have an average household income of more than $ 100,000. But there are also serious challenges. Large occupied cities are not conducive to Wegman's expansion. Navy Yard is secluded, a gastronomic desert next to a social housing complex, and isolated from most of the neighborhood by the Brooklyn-Queens Freeway. And New York's food scene is a hypercompetitive mix that ranges from supermarkets and local stalls to local chains like Fairway and D'Agostino, who are more experienced in the high and rising operating costs they have consumed in city supermarkets. Environment.
Some of the questions that are included in the questionnaire of the Wegmans are as follows:

- What do you think about the price of the products at the Wegmans?
- Are the Wegmans stores clean?
- Do you recommend visiting the Wegmans to your friends and relatives?
- What can we do to improve our services?
- How was the staff-behavior at the MyWegmansConnect?
- Did you face any issue on your last visit to the Wegmans? If yes, then please explain in brief.
- How frequently do you visit the Wegmans?
"The business has changed," said John Catsimatidis, the owner of a company that operates 35 local supermarkets under the Gristedes and D'Agostino flags. If they attack you in five different ways, they all get a percentage and you're tied up.
For Wegmans, Brooklyn is a special type of project that poses many design challenges. The new building will house several floors of light industrial products above the store. As a result, companies that did not violate the design of the store had to install an elevator shaft that included a cafeteria on the mezzanine and a wine bar with a capacity of more than 100 people. A bigger problem is climate change: Hurricane Sandy flooded the site in 2012 and increased the location by an average of 5 feet to reduce the risk of recurrence.
MyWegmansConnect Survey questionnaire is purely based on your last visit to the Wegmans. Each and every comment received in the MyWegmansConnect Survey is analyzed and is worked upon in the best possible way.
"It was completely new to Wegmans," said Navid Maqami, co-founder of the S9 architecture studio that designed the Navy Yard exterior. "It looks a little different here." Look at the windows - Most retailers use colored glass to cut energy costs, but this Wegmans install low iron content glass, which is most used by luxury retailers and is easier to see. For Wegmans to be a travel destination, shoppers must know what's inside.
The supermarket has already adapted to new environments. Last year, the first mall opened in Natick, a Boston suburb. Wegmans built an escalator for his two-story store and a walkway that connected to a 1,800-car garage.
Parking was a turning point in Brooklyn. Steiner believed the store only needed 250 locations because many New Yorkers did not have a car, but Wegman executives who expected shoppers to drive an hour insisted on learning more. In addition to the store, there is a parking space with an additional 429 parking spaces. There will also be special rooms for Uber vans, essential in New York.
