Wegmans is making its way through the concrete jungle where dreams are made of. Yes, I am talking about New York! The retailer has opened its latest store in Manhattan, standing at 87,500 square feet.
“We know our customers can’t wait to come see what we have in store and our employees have been training, in some cases, for over a year to get ready for this day,” said Store Manager Matt Dailor. “Wegmans is a celebration of food and people, and we can’t wait to open the doors on October 18 to our community here in the east village.”
The new location will be taking up residence at 770 Broadway and will open its doors at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, October 18, making it the second New York City store since the 2019 opening in Brooklyn. Wegmans will be bringing more than 600 newly hired employees to create a one-of-a-kind shopping experience in the store’s warm and welcoming atmosphere that reflects the original architecture of the historic Wannamaker building.
As noted in the release, the company’s extensive restaurant food selections, prepared by Executive Chef David Lopatynski and his culinary staff, include fresh-made salads and more options. The company will also offer made-to-order and packaged Mezze options, inspired by a Mediterranean diet.
Wegmans’ ready-to-eat and ready-to-heat options feature a wide selection of entrées and sides for both individuals and families. The Astor Place onsite dining room will be opening in the first half of 2024.
