Wegmans recently opened its first store in Delaware, an 84,000-square-foot market in Wilmington that will employ about 450 workers.
Wegmans operates more than 100 grocery stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Washington, D.C., and now, Delaware, reports Winsight Grocery Business.
The new store includes indoor and outdoor seating for 120 shoppers, more than 550 parking spots, 13 full-service checkout lanes and 20 self-checkout kiosks around the supermarket. The store also features an expansive cheese shop, a diverse selection of international foods, an in-house bakery and deli, and a catering department, in addition to selling a variety of prepared foods.
The new market is part of a larger Wilmington development that includes residential, office and retail buildings, Winsight Grocery Business reports. Wegmans has given more than $25,000 to the Wilmington community through donations and event sponsorships, the company said.
In July, Wegmans opened its first store in Washington, D.C. The grocer is slated to open a new store in Reston, Virginia, early next year.
