Locals shocked after Syracuse Wegmans sells canned fruit at $9 per jar
While many people love shopping at Wegmans, sometimes their prices can be questionable. This was the case recently when a photo went viral on social media for the wrong reasons. Here, a photo showed canned pears that were priced at $8.99 in a Syracuse store. Ironically, these were also labeled as ‘consistent low prices!’ which was written on a sign next to the display.
Responding to this, one user even went as far as to say: “All we can do is boycott the place. I used to be a die-hard Wegmans shopper. There is now no reason for me to step foot in there. They don’t even have a real meat department anymore. Sad. So much for local family grocery stores. Greedy.”
While this may have been an over-reaction, plenty of replies also shared similar thoughts that the store sometimes went too far with certain products and their costs.
Wegmans is a supermarket chain with over 100 locations across the northeastern and mid-Atlantic United States. Founded in 1916 in Rochester, it is known for its strong emphasis on healthy living and sustainability. Because of this, it has gained a cult following. However, based on the above it looks as though some people are less than impressed with their pricing.
