Wegmans Plans New Location in Lancaster, Pennsylvania



ROCHESTER, NY – Wegmans is continuing to expand its footprint in Pennsylvania, this time in a whole new market.

The retailer announced earlier this week that it would open its first store in Lancaster County, a move that will greatly please consumers who previously needed to travel a considerable distance to reach the closest Wegmans location.

Ralph Uttaro, Wegmans’ Senior Vice President of Real Estate, said he looks forward to the day when the company can welcome customers to Wegmans in Lancaster.

“Lancaster residents have been asking us to build a store for a long time,” he said. “In fact, we know that many now travel to our other locations to shop. Now we will be able to bring incredible customer service, help with meals, and consistent low prices to them.”

The new store is expected to be similar in size and design to Wegmans’ newest stores, coming in at 120,000 square feet. The store will anchor the planned mixed-use project, The Crossings at Conestoga Creek, a development of High Real Estate Group LLC, according to a press release.

Up to 550 people will be employed in full- and part-time positions, the vast majority of which will be hired locally.

Wegmans hopes the new store will open in 2018, though a solid opening date will only be announced once all necessary approvals are in place.

The company currently operates 16 stores and a Retail Service Center in Pennsylvania. On November 8, Wegmans will open its 17th Pennsylvania store in Concordville (Delaware County).
