Wegmans Expands Footprint with New Store in Harrison, New York
HARRISON, NY - While Wegmans has recently branched out beyond its home turf, that doesn’t mean the retailer isn’t still focused on the state of New York. This week, Wegmans announced it is continuing to up its store count in the Empire State with a new store in Harrison, New York.
The new supermarket location is long-awaited by locals, according to a press release, and as such, Wegmans has already began preparing the store’s staff, hiring 220 full-time employees last year and now looking to hire 280 part-timers across all departments. Remaining openings include full-time positions in the produce department.
“We’re looking for friendly people who are enthusiastic about food and eager to help our customers enjoy delicious, easy meals,” said Store Manager Matthew Dailor, who joined the company as a part-time parking lot attendant 25 years ago. “We’ll provide all the training needed to be successful because our employees receive some of the most in-depth product, service, and culinary education in the industry.”
The 121,000-square-foot Harrison store will offer traditional grocery goods as well as feature an expansive variety of restaurant foods, including The Burger Bar. The location will officially open on June 7, 2020, at 106 Corporate Park Drive.
