Wegmans Food Markets will open a 113,000-square-foot store in Hanover, N.J., on July 30 and a 108,000-square-foot store in Montvale, N.J., on Sept. 24. Both stores are about 30 miles from New York City and are the closest locations to the nation’s largest city.
The family-owned chain, based in upstate Rochester, N.Y., will open its first New York location in Brooklyn next year. Another suburban New York City store is planned to open in 2018. Ten other stores also are in the works in the company’s current six-state market, including the first four stores in the Raleigh/Chapel Hill, N.C., area, according to a local Rochester news report.
