The day is finally about to arrive. A day that will forever change grocery shopping in Massachusetts as we know it. Wegmans is about to open.
Just one week from today (October 16) will be the grand opening of Wegmans Northborough. It’s a must-go-to store for anyone who wants value and service when they grocery shop.
Wegmans first opened in Rochester, NY in 1930. Since then, store locations have spread across central NY and even more recently into Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Now 75+ stores strong and with dozens of awards on its roster, Wegmans is a foodie mecca changing the grocery shopping experience in the northeast.
Born and raised in the Syracuse, NY area, I was lucky enough to grow up having Wegmans as our local grocery store. Spoiled by weekly shopping trips, I never realized that all grocery stores weren’t created equal. Until, that is, I moved to another state.
So what makes Wegmans so great? A few of the top reasons:
- Consistent low prices – sure I sound like an advertisement, but it’s true. Your buck goes a lot further at Wegmans.
- Wegmans brand items – the “generic” brand never tasted so good. A couple favorites to highlight–Wegmans’ brand pasta and wing sauce.
- The Market Cafe – with yummy subs, pizza and an abundance of other options, Wegmans is an actual lunch and dinner destination.
- Produce – The produce section is a cook’s heaven. In addition to the fresh and high-quality produce, you can also expect to find some not-so-common ingredients.
Unfortunately, the Northborough store is about 35 miles from Boston, but other store locations are coming soon to Westwood, MA and Burlington, MA.

Note: my affinity for Wegmans is based on my years of shopping in the central New York locations. I can only hope that the Northborough location and other locations to open in Massachusetts will maintain the same integrity in price, consistency, cleanliness and service. I’ve noticed the new Mass location is only open 6am to midnight which is quite a bit different from the 24-hour locations where I come from. Hopefully that will be the only difference we see!
