Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. Key Developments

Wegmans Food Markets Opens New Store in Hilltop Village Center, Alexandria, Virginia

Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. has opened a new store in Hilltop Village Center, Alexandria, Virginia. Store Manager Mike Dempsey will reportedly have built a team of 550 employees, who are ready to deliver the incredible customer service that Wegmans is known for. Treat employees with care and respect, Dempsey believes, and they'll treat customers with that same care and respect. Wegmans has more than 3,600 VA employees, and that number will grow next year when it opens two stores in Richmond and one in Charlottesville.

Wegmans Food Markets Announces Executive Appointments

Wegmans Food Markets has named two new vice presidents. Anne Meath has become the vice president of organizational development, providing guidance in employment and leadership development, performance management, talent sourcing and other related issues. Also, Kathleen Fitzgerald becomes vice president of human resources for its corporate, distribution and manufacturing division. She will provide guidance to Wegmans human resources team to hire, develop and retain the best talent.

Wegmans to Open Another Northern Virginia Store

Wegmans plans to open another D.C.-area store, this one in Tysons Corner, in 2019. The company has a preliminary agreement to open an approximately 80,000-square-foot store in a yet-to-be-built building on the Capital One campus at Route 123 and the Capital Beltway. The store will be smaller than typical suburban Wegmans stores, which average between 110,000 and 140,000 square feet. The Tysons Wegmans will be closer to the newer, urban model the chain has rolled out in two locations so far, one in its hometown of Rochester, New York, and another outside of Boston.
