Moving to a new area is always an exciting endeavor, especially when the new home is 100,000 square feet. Wegmans Food Market is planting roots on Long Island with the opening of its first store at Lake Grove, New York.
The store will be located in the DSW plaza at the corner of Middle County Road and Moriches Road. Wegmans has entered into an agreement to purchase 8.5 acres of the existing 28-acre plaza. Prestige Properties and Development will continue to own and operate the remainder of the plaza.
So far, a total of 106 stores have been opened in seven states under Wegmans. According to the release, the grocer has announced plans for additional stores in Virginia; Delaware; and Manhattan, New York, all scheduled to open over the next two years.
A timeline for construction and opening has not yet been determined.
