Wegmans said in an online column that it's dropping its seasonal price-freeze list.
The grocery chain started the consumer price freezes two years ago as a response to high food prices and a weak economy. The froze prices on seasonal goods, like hot dogs and corn in summer, and they changed the list every three months.
In her online column, Wegmans' Mary Ellen Burris said the economy has recovered to the point where the company has decided to drop the seasonal list and focus instead on providing consistent prices all the time for items families use the most. But there will no longer be a guaranteed price freeze.
