New Warning To Thousands Of Wegmans Shoppers
For decades, loyal customers of Wegmans have sung the store’s praises.
Since the first Wegmans location opened in Rochester, New York in 1916, the popular grocery retailer has expanded to over 100 locations along the east coast, nearly 50 of them in New York State alone, and is now one of the largest supermarket chains in the country.
The store is frequently named to Fortune magazine’s “Best Companies To Work For” list, and was recently ranked #2 in Food & Wine magazine’s “The Best Supermarkets In America,” with the publication declaring:
“Name a better large-format grocery store chain on the Eastern Seaboard, we'll wait, and rather comfortably, thanks. From the value-minded house brand to a dizzying array of baked goods and prepared foods, and don't forget those ridiculously good subs, Wegmans doesn't seem to lose many shoppers over time, rather adding only more to the fold.”
Needless to say, Wegmans has plenty of fans across the Empire State. But as we all know, nothing is perfect - even a store as beloved as this one.
Wegmans Issues Credit Card Alert
Oops! Even a highly praised chain like Wegmans is bound to slip up from time to time.
If you shopped at any Wegmans location on Wednesday, August 16th and paid using a credit card, you may want to double-check your statement. Wegmans has alerted customers that they may have accidentally been charged twice for their purchases. The alert affects both in-store and online shoppers.
If you bought groceries from Wegmans using EBT or a debit card and input your pin number, your account will be unaffected.
“We recently identified an issue with credit card transactions processed on August 16th for both in-store and online orders. Some credit card transactions were inadvertently charged twice for their order, however, EBT and debit card transactions were not affected. We are working with our processor to reverse the charges.”
Thankfully, Wegmans added that customers will see the duplicate charges reversed in the upcoming days, depending on their bank or issuer.
