Wegmans Is Coming to the Lower Hudson Valley
We've asked you what chain stores you'd like to see in the Hudson Valley, and one of the names we get a lot is Wegmans.
The 100-year-old company has earned quite the following across the region for its quality and customer service.
Plus, how can you go wrong with their in-store market cafe?
Now, after a long wait, it is looking like the Rochester-based supermarket chain is finally coming to the area.
Lohud is reporting that Wegmans is proposing to open in the Town of Harrison in Westchester County.
Wegmans Sr. Vice President of Real Estate Ralph Uttaro in a statement
We look forward to the day when we can welcome customers into our Harrison store and help them make delicious, easy meals. Harrison is an ideal place for us to deliver on our promise of incredible customer service, the best ingredients, restaurant-quality prepared foods, and consistent low prices.
Wegmans has ninety two stores across the eastern United States. Forty-six of those stores are here in New York state, mainly in Rochester, Syracuse, Buffalo, the Southern Tier and the Finger Lakes.
According to the announcement, Wegmans wants to build a two-story, 125,000-square-foot store and 8,000-square-foot "complementary retail outparcel."
The plans are still "not finalized and a construction timeline and projected opening date for the store won’t be determined until all necessary approvals are in place," the announcement said.
