I've seen Wegman mentioned elsewhere. Looks much bigger than Trader Joe. Anyone have any comparative experience?

People love Trader Joe's, and people love Wegman's.  But they're very different experiences.  Trader Joe's has small stores, with a curated, rotating selection.  Wegman's prides itself on broad selection, customer service, and food you can eat in the store:
Grub Street: Everything You Need to Know About the Brooklyn Wegmans
Eater: What to Expect From Dining at the New Wegmans, the Cult Grocery Opening in Brooklyn
Business Insider: 8 reasons why people are so obsessed with Wegmans, according to the store's super fans

I've only been to Wegman's once, 30 years ago, while on the way back from Toronto on a road trip with friends.  We stopped at a Wegman's outside Buffalo for some car snacks.  I remember the soda aisle was so massive, there was furniture for sale in the middle of it.  I ended up buying an inexpensive desk and throwing it in the back of the station wagon for the long drive back to NYC.

They are a little upscale.  Would be nice to see another LIDL.
