Grocery shopping can be a mind numbing experience but when I step inside Wegmans on the Carlisle Pike Mechanicsburg, PA, it is truly like being whisked away to another land.
The bakery transports me back to a visit to Italy and the aroma of fresh baked bread that I awoke to each morning, the seafood department brings me to my childhood memories of Freeport, NY shopping with my parents for the fresh catch of the day, the display of cheeses and olives escort me to fond memories of holiday dinners with my grandmother and many family members.
Wegmans understands that the attention to detail from the ceiling to the floor is what makes the difference.
Yet, what truly lingers in my mind long after my car has pulled out of the parking lot is my heartfelt interactions with a produce employee named Michael Bennett.
I particularly love the produce department. The vibrancy of colors and vast assortment of fruits and vegetables is such an outstanding welcome upon entry - and there, in the midst is Michael. I seem to be lucky enough to shop on the days that he is working and he truly brings my level of customer service to a whole new dimension of customer experience.
Michael's genuine smile and attentiveness to the unspoken needs of the customers in his space is most memorable. He goes out of his way to weigh and tag my selections and always offers a kind word. He is truly a ray of sunshine and encouragement. His presence is truly a gift to those that shop at Wegmans in Mechanicsburg, PA.
Thank you Michael Bennett for being exactly who you are!!
