Well my friends, I got a sneak a peek of the holy land – D.C.’s first Wegmans! And there are no words. Well there’s actual a huge fact sheet which I’ll include below. I also took a bunch of photos of the 84,000 sq. ft. Shangri-La. Since the store is opening on Wednesday it wasn’t fully stocked but the photos will give you a good snapshot of what’s to be. Read More
