Western New York is truly a unique place. Yes, we have the best fan base in the NFL with the Bills Mafia and our chicken wings are simply the best on the planet. But there are so many other great reasons to love this area and large retailers and businesses are starting to recognize that as well.

Everyone has their favorite grocery store or the place you shop at more frequently than the others. But over the past few years, there have been more options available than there were when you were a kid shopping for food with mom or dad. The newest store with a plan to open in Western New York seems to have an eye on Orchard Park. At least according to some social media and local social sites and posts.
