Wegmans Continues Southward Expansion With Latest Store in North Carolina; Dan Aken Comments


ROCHESTER, NY
Monday, April 22nd, 2024

With eyes toward its continued southward expansion Wegmans has announced the newest United States market to welcome the brand will be North Carolina. A new location will open in the Charlotte region in 2026.

Dan Aken, Vice President of Real Estate and Store Planning, Wegmans“Four years after opening our first store in North Carolina, we’re excited to announce that Wegmans is coming to Charlotte,” Dan Aken, the retailer’s Vice President of Real Estate and Store Planning, said in a statement to ABC 13. “We’ve received hundreds of requests from locals asking for a store in their area, and we’ve spent years looking for exactly the right location. We’re thrilled to bring the Wegmans experience to this community.”

Wegmans plans to open the new 110,000-square-foot store location in North Carolina's Ballantyne neighborhood, expanding its presence in the state. The grocer currently has four stores in North Carolina—all located in the Raleigh-Durham area—which have all been open since 2019, according to the source.

As it pushes further south, the new Charlotte location will be Wegmans' southernmost store yet.
