Wegmans Ends Pub Restaurant Operations

WXXI News: Wegmans is ending its Pub operations at stores throughout its footprint ... Burt Flickinger, a longtime supermarket analyst, who is managing director of Strategic Resource Group, thinks that some of the attached or nearby restaurants that Wegmans operates also will continue to be an important part of the company’s business plan.

“The higher profit margins are all in beverage so for the on-premise experience  for the locations with separate entrances Wegmans will continue to do well with those locations." Flickinger also thinks it's a good idea for Wegmans to get out of operations within its stores that serve alcohol, from a perception and public safety perspective.
