Wegmans Food Markets Inc., a family-owned supermarket powerhouse as well-known for its cooking as for its groceries, typically opens just two or three stores a year. This year, all three openings are in the Philadelphia region - in Mount Laurel, Cherry Hill and Warrington. Supermarket experts expect a huge impact, especially in South Jersey. "It'll certainly upset the market," said Mona Doyle, owner of the Consumer Network Inc., a Philadelphia research firm. "They will have to cut into someone's business," she said.

Wegmans Food Markets Inc. has signed a lease with the owner of Montgomery Mall to open a store at a Boscov's that went idle when that department store chain went through bankruptcy several years ago, mall officials said Tuesday. Mall owner Simon Property Group Inc., said the new Wegmans in Montgomery County would replace a 125,000-square-foot Boscov's, but there was no word on when the store might open. Wegmans spokeswoman Jo Natale said that the store would not be open in 2012 and that it was not yet clear whether the Rochester, N.Y.-based company would be able to fit the project into its schedule for 2013.

The Supreme Court, sidestepping a dispute in the hotly competitive banking industry, yesterday allowed national banks to make widespread use of automated teller machines owned by other companies without violating restrictions on branch banks. The court, with one dissenting vote, let stand a ruling that independent banks in New York say could lead to a drastic decline in banking competition and an end to smaller, community-based banks. Only Justice Byron R. White voted to hear arguments in the case.

HARRISBURG - Wegmans Food Markets has decided to pull out of the state's oft-criticized wine-kiosk program, dealing a major blow to the state Liquor Control Board's latest effort to operate more like a private business. In a statement today, the supermarket chain said: "We had hoped that our customers would find the kiosks to be a valuable addition to their shopping experience, but that proved not to be the case. They want the convenience of purchasing wine in a supermarket, but found the choice of items too limited in the kiosk.

Smokers, it seems, are going down like ducks in a shooting gallery, with 2008 emerging as the Year Of the Cigarette Ban. Capping a week in which smokers were booted to the curb in city after city across the globe, the Wegmans supermarket chain announced yesterday that it would stop selling cigarettes for the first time since its inception in 1916. The chain operates 71 stores, four of which are in the Philadelphia region. The decision, which takes effect Feb. 10, makes Wegmans Food Markets Inc. the highest-profile supermarket group known to have removed the beleaguered tobacco product from its shelves.

Wegmans Food Markets Inc. has inked a deal with the owner of Montgomery Mall to open a supermarket at a Boscov's location idled during the department-store chain's bankruptcy several years ago, mall officials said Wednesday. The planned 125,000-square-foot Wegmans, whose construction date was still undetermined, would become only the second supermarket in the region added to a shopping mall where department stores once reigned as conventional anchors. The first was a 65,000-square-foot Whole Foods that opened in January 2010 at Plymouth Meeting Mall.
