Wegmans Preps Brooklyn Store For October Opening

After months of preparation, Wegmans Food Markets has slated an opening date for its Brooklyn Store: Sunday, October 27.

The company’s first store in New York City, a 74,000 square-foot location, will operate on Flushing Avenue in the Brooklyn Navy Yard Admirals Row development. The company is now hiring and training for 350 part-time positions at the store.

Wegmans Brooklyn will feature more than 60,000 individual products as well as a second-floor mezzanine with a bar, serving food and wine, beer and spirits.

“The Brooklyn community has been eagerly awaiting the opening date for this store,” said Todd Ferrera, vp/district manager. “October 27 is just around the corner, and we can’t wait to celebrate with everyone.”
