ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Wegmans Food Markets on Tuesday reported that they were able to open all 81 of the company’s stores in the six states where they do business, all of which were affected to some degree by Hurricane Sandy. Wegmans’ stores are located in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland and Massachusetts.
“We recognize that we provide an essential service, and not just food, but prescription and over-the-counter drugs," stated Jo Natale, Wegmans director of media relations. "Most of our stores have not been affected by power outages, but several were. We have been planning for days by testing our generators, bringing in additional generators where necessary, and securing an adequate fuel supply.”
Wegmans will now work with its stores to assess community needs to see how they can help, Natale said.
