A huge win for an otherwise neglected area of the South End. This development will revitalize this neighborhood which is so close to the city yet so underutilized. Show me a Wegman's!

I have some friends out in Ashland and Northborough, and they all light up at the very mention of Wegman's (they have one out in that neck of the woods). It's seriously like mentioning Disneyworld in front of an 8-year-old; they get that excited. I don't quite understand what could make a supermarket that awesome, but it would be fun to find out with a new South End location.
