Weekly Question: Have You Frequented Wayland Town Center's Businesses?

Wayland Town Center has opened a couple of businesses so far, but have you been a patron?

Construction on Wayland Town Center continues even as two businesses, Stop & Shop and Bertucci's, have already opened their doors.

Stop & Shop welcomed its first customers on Nov. 16, after a grand opening party on the night before. Bertucci's soon followed, serving its first customers on Nov. 26.

Word on the street is that Bertucci's has been packed, but Stop & Shop seems to have been pretty quiet.

What do you think? If you've visited either spot, were you pleased with your experience? How are you feeling about Wayland Town Center overall now that shops have opened and more are coming?

I guess I like this Stop & Shop better than Natick because the parking lot makes A LOT more sense and is less dangerous for pedestrians. I also feel Wayland is superior to Framingham in that the store is much cleaner. Granted it is new, but the Framingham site has always seemed dirty to me. I like the fact that the refrigerator items are behind closed doors, saving energy and making the aisle more comfortable for shoppers. The meat choices in Wayland are more appetizing than those same selections in Framingham. I have switched to Stop and Shop for many items that I once purchased at Whole Foods, such as seafood, as I never felt I could trust Stop & Shop. The Wayland staff seem well educated about safety practices.

We are frequent Wayland Stop and Shop customers and have been to Bertucci's twice already. We are really thrilled to have another grocery store option in central Wayland. We also shop at Whole Foods, but needed to go elsewhere for some things on our usual grocery list. Now we just cross the street instead of fighting Natick, Framingham, or Sudbury traffic. As for prices, the Grand Opening sales and coupons have been wonderful for our budget. It also appears that Whole Foods is finally facing some competition because they've had some good sales, too, lately (relatively speaking, of course). We're looking forward to seeing the other Town Center tenants open soon. In fact, I was at the Wayland Stop and Shop yesterday and saw the exterior signage up for Orange Leaf (frozen yogurt) and Supercuts.

Thanks for the comments, Everyone. Over on the Wayland Patch Facebook page we have a couple of other thoughts: Cheryl Kreinbring says, "I don't shop at Stop & Shop and I don't eat food with gluten." And Julia Thompstone White says, "Have not been to Bertucci's, but I like Stop and Shop. Pleasant employees."

I think the Stop & Shop is one of the best things that's happened to Wayland in a long time. Excellent selection, nice employees, no lines, good parking. Why go to overpriced Whole Foods when S & S is right here? I'm surprised more people don't shop there but happy when I have it practically to myself!

I like the Wayland Location enormously. I moved here from Arlington and think the service and cleaniness of the Wayland location is superior to any other Stop and Shop location I've frequented. I feel very fortunate to have 2 high quality - Donelan's in Lincoln being the secound - supermarkets within 5 minutes. I really would like to see an Ace or TruValue hardware store in the town center or next to Whole Foods.
