Wegmans Expands into West Cary, North Carolina
WEST CARY, NC - Wegmans might be synonymous with New York state, but after numerous efforts to lock down retail markets along the East Coast—Wegmans just might become synonymous with states like North Carolina as well. This month, the grocer revealed more details on its newest store in the Tar Heel State, which is strengthening the foundation Wegmans laid down last year.
The new West Cary, North Carolina, location will weigh in at 103,000 square feet and feature the retailer’s iconic European-style open-air market look and feel. The store will also offer Wegmans’ top-notch selection of food options—both for consumers to throw in their shopping cart for later or to enjoy in-store at fast casual eatery The Burger Bar.
Wegmans’ newest store will open this summer, creating 450 local job opportunities—180 of which will be full-time positions, according to a press release.
“Our company is known for being one of the best places to work because we offer opportunities for advancement, flexible scheduling, and competitive pay and benefits packages,” said West Cary Store Manager Katie Duchnowski. “At Wegmans, we work as a family to accomplish our goals. We are committed to hiring applicants who have a passion for food and are eager to make a difference for our customers and the community. The ideal candidate is someone who shares our core values of respect, caring, and high standards. If you match these criteria, the skill set to do any position in the store can be taught.”
Wegmans currently operates 101 stores in seven states across the East Coast. In addition to its West Cary location, 2020 2ill also see the retailer open new stores in Harrison, New York, and Tysons Corner, Virginia.
