Wegmans Saga Part Eight

I received an email today from “Buffalo Guy.” Buffalo Guy has lived in Ellicott City for the past fifteen years and, in his words he, “wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.”

That being said, Buffalo Guy apparently misses not having a Wegmans around and so naturally he is anxious to see the proposed Columbia store open. Buffalo Guy sent me a copy of the Order from the Howard County Board of Appeals in the matter of Philip Rousseau versus Howard County Planning Board, Wegmans Food Market Inc., and Science Fiction, LLC. The order grants the motion to dismiss the appeal that Philip Rousseau made after losing his last appeal against the Howard County Hearing Examiner. The order was dated December 2, 2008.

In other words, it’s another win for Wegmans. They still seem to be on track for a late 2009, early 2010 opening.

Thanks for the update Buffalo Guy.
