Open a Wegmans in Hoboken, NJ

This petition had 189 supporters

When Robert Wegman in 1950 decided his goal was to build the finest supermarket chain in the land he knew that meant Wegmans wouldn’t be the fastest-growing company. Wegmans chose carefully where to expand over the years and I know that Hoboken, NJ would be the perfect place for a Wegmans.

First, you have 50,000 people who live in one square mile of Hoboken, NJ. Your customer density would be overwhelming. Secondly, consider the demographics of Hoboken (as of 2009). Median household income is $105,710. Median value of owner-occupied housing units is $572,300. This is a city that is ready for a upscale supermarket that targets the proper demographic. 

Upon hearing that a Wegmans plans to open its first NYC store in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, I believe the slow and controlled expansion of other Wegmans will be on the horizon. I, and other citizens of Hoboken, implore you to open a new Wegmans in Hoboken with this petition.
