It’s a well-known secret in the office that I’m just a little bit weirdly obsessed with Wegmans, despite my never having been there. However, I’m not the only one in the world whose in love with the retailer, for it has been feeling the love on multiple sides of the grocery world.
After being listed as number three on Fortune and Great Place to Work®'s list of Best Workplaces for Millennials, the retailer announced it broke ground on another Virginia store in Alexandria.
According to a report from local news outlet Alexandria Times, Wegmans will anchor the new town center called Carlyle Crossing. This one-million-square-foot project is comprised of 130,00 square feet of retail space and roughly 750 residential units. (Can you imagine being within walking distance of a Wegmans? Swoon.)
Phase one of the project is scheduled to be completed by the fall of 2021, with the storefront officially open in 2022.
Will more Wegmans start cropping up in Virginia? Will the beloved grocer expand past its current markets and look toward California? (Hey, a girl can dream.) Stick with Deli Market News for all that’s happening in retail.
