If You Squint, You Can Almost See The Olive Bar (Plus Wegmans Secret To Delivering Groceries)
We seem to still be looking at a Summer 2012 opening. I haven't heard more since the Columbia Patch's report. But progress is always good, and I took an "out the window" video on Sunday. The picture below shakes with each bump on McGaw Road, but you can now recognize the site as an enormous store.
People often wonder what makes Wegmans so different. I posted two years ago about why I want Wegmans. But one great difference is logistics. Wegmans delivers 100% of its food in trucks like the one above. Strobist, the eye behind the HoCo 360 blog, photographed that "vehicle." You get great gas mileage from a Pez dispenser.
