Wegmans Goes Retro for 40th Anniversary in Syracuse

12/04/2008
Wegmans' current logo
The 10 Wegmans stores in the Syracuse, N.Y. area will mark the supermarket operator's 40th anniversary in the market in a unique fashion -- by going back in time.

On Saturday Store associates will sport hats and nametags featuring the original Wegmans logo from 1968. It was on Dec. 9 of that year when the Rochester, N.Y.-based company first entered the Syracuse market with the opening of its John Glenn store.

As an added celebratory touch, the locations will serve cake from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., offer food samples of recipes from the Holiday issue of Wegmans' Menu Magazine, and give away four $100 gift cards.

One-hundred sixty-five employees in the Syracuse division are also celebrating a milestone of their own: They've worked at Wegmans for 25 years or longer.
