Wegmans Plans 10 New Supermarkets in 5 States

Alexandria, Virginia location to open in 2015

Wegmans Food Markets says it plans to add 10 new stores in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions over the next year or two, including a location in Northern Virginia.

The Rochester-based supermarket chain says it's planning to open four stores in Virginia, two each in Massachusetts and New Jersey, and one each in Pennsylvania and Maryland.

The first of the new stores will open this fall in Burlington, Massachusetts. Two others are scheduled to open in 2015 in the Alexandria section of Fairfax County, Virginia and Westwood, Massachusetts.

The Alexandria location, which will anchor the Hilltop Village Center at Telegraph Road and Beulah Road, was supposed to open in 2014, but was delayed, the Washington Business Journal reported earlier this year.

Opening dates for the other locations has yet to be determined.

Wegmans currently has 84 stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Massachusetts.

The company is continuing to upgrade or replace stores in older markets, including New York state, where Wegmans has 46 stores.
