retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Charlotte Observer reports that Wegmans says that it is "considering multiple sites in the Raleigh-Durham area, but is staying mum on whether it is eyeing the Charlotte market." Wegmans reportedly has its eye on two sites in Cary, North Carolina, and "is also considering multiple sites in the Raleigh/Durham market, but until there are firm deals for each site, we are unable to share the locations or other details."

The story notes that "grocery store competition has been heating up in the Charlotte market, with the entry of Publix stores, new Harris Teeter locations and renovations of Food Lion stores."
