I'm a Chicago Chowhound and supermarket fan who has made many visits to Wegmans' Syracuse flagship in Fayetteville. The place never fails to impress me, but it's left me with a really, really strange question: why is it that Upstate New York is so full of giant supermarkets?

And why hasn't any of this caught on outside the Lake-Effect Snow Belt?
