First Aldi, now the news that Wegmans is opening a grocery store in the Richmond area

Two stores actually, one in Midlothian (Stonehenge Village Shopping Center, on Midlo Tpke near Chesterfield Towne Center) and one in Short Pump (West Broad Marketplace past Short Pump Town Center). Opening dates have not been set yet. See the press release for more details.

I know some folks love them; I’ve never shopped there before. So Wegmans experts, what should we expect?
