Wegmans to open new store concept

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Wegmans Food Markets is expanding its footprint with a new concept.

In a first for the 101-year-old grocer, Wegmans said it will open a two-level store, at Natick Mall, Natick, Mass., with direct access to the shopping center. The 134,000-sq.-ft. store will be located in a building that formerly housed one of the mall's anchors, J.C. Penney. 

The new Wegmans, scheduled to open in spring 2018, will devote 12,500 sq. ft. on the second floor to two restaurant concepts. The grocer is seeking a complementary tenant for the 45,000-sq.-ft. third floor of the building.

The family-owned Wegmans operates 93-supermarkets across New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, and Massachusetts. The Natick location will be Wegman's sixth location in Massachusetts. It is scheduled to open a store in Medford, Mass., at the beginning of November.
