Rochester, NY, 3/25/2021
There was an event at our East Avenue store on Tuesday, serving as another reminder that there continues to be a great deal of pain in our community and across our nation. It takes time to truly understand the significance of these events and how we can learn from them. We have a caring, listening culture at Wegmans and always seek to understand prior to sharing our response. We continue to listen to our people, our customers, and our community.
At Wegmans, we continue to have zero tolerance for racial discrimination of any kind and stand for diversity and inclusion for all. In fact, we believe in going beyond this to help those in need rise to the top. Since 1982, we have spent over $150 million dollars educating, training, and developing folks in need in the Rochester community.
Rochester is our home; for more than 100 years we have been committed to always helping others, doing the right thing, and making a difference in every community we serve. We wouldn’t be who we are today without the Rochester community.
