Weis Markets’ Jonathan Weis Announces Two New Stores in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania
SUNBURY, PA - Having recently bolstered its supply chain growth with the appointment of Terry Wallace to Vice President of Supply Chain and Logistics, Weis Markets is making a move to expand its grocery market reach with the opening of two new stores. The new locations will be in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, and will extend the retailer’s services to its customers in Bethlehem and Lower Macungie.
“We are proud to make a significant investment in the Lehigh Valley, a growing region where we operate 14 stores,” said Jonathan Weis, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer. “Our new stores offer customers in Bethlehem and Lower Macungie more amenities, a broader range of products, and increased convenience along with the strong everyday values that customers expect from Weis Markets. We are grateful for the local support for our project and look forward to continuing to serve the growing Bethlehem and Lower Macungie communities.”
The store in Bethlehem stands at 63,000 square feet and is located in the Westgate Mall. According to a press release, the location opened to the public on May 13 and almost doubles the size of the store it replaced.
Opening one week later, on May 20, the 68,000-square-foot Lower Macungie store is located at 3440 Grandview Drive and is significantly larger than the location across Route 100 that it took place of. The store offers a seating area with beer on tap in its café and a covered pick-up area for Weis 2 Go online orders.
Both of the new locations will feature new meal solutions centers, an increased variety of natural and organic products, and environmentally friendly solutions that include a CO2 refrigeration system and LED lighting throughout. Additionally, shoppers at both stores will benefit from Weis’ Low, Low Prices Program, which launched in 2019, lowering prices on more than 7,000 grocery and produce offerings.
With these new locations added to its portfolio of almost 200 stores, what is next for Weis’ expansion strategy? Keep clicking on AndNowUKnow to find out.
