Last week Wegmans confirmed the rumors that it would open stores in the Richmond, VA market. According to Senior Vice President Ralph Uttaro, "We have had countless requests to open a Wegmans store in the Richmond area, so we are delighted to finally announce that we're headed there."
Wegmans, which typically ranges in size from 120,000 - 140,000 square feet, will anchor the planned Stonehenge Village Shopping Center in Midlothian, VA, which is about 10 miles southwest of downtown Richmond.
Wegmans and Cabela's are the proposed anchors for West Broad Marketplace in Short Pump, VA, which is approximately 13 miles northwest of downtown Richmond.
The company currently operates 83 stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Massachusetts.
