The Columbia Wegmans: Let's Be Honest, It Looks Like We're Waiting To 2012 For Danny To Open
In March, people had quoted a Wegmans employee as saying the shop on Snowden River Parkway wouldn't open until 2012. But I had dreams. I had hopes. I saw myself strolling through the aisles next year. Maybe not really at Valentine's Day, but 2011 at least.
Unfortunately, the Columbia site looks dead to me.
I parked on McGaw Road, and the chain link fence seems to protect a few construction vehicles and a lot of dusty ground. Nothing looked like a rush to serve me deliciacies. I assume the real action is taking place in Frederick where Wegmans Web site lists a 2011 opening date. Columbia remains "to be determined" -- along with a pack of stores like Germantown, MD and Northborough, MA that weren't on that list when I started checking.
Anyone know more about a starting date? I need to re-think my plans for a Valentine's Day roundup at the Columbia store. I thought I was being optimistically humorous. Now, that just seems sad.
