Wegmans Food Markets has signed a purchase agreement with Normandy Real Estate Partners for a 20-acre parcel of land in New York’s Westchester County to build a new store. The land is located at 106-110 Corporate Park Drive in Harrison.
“We look forward to the day when we can welcome customers into our Harrison store and help them make delicious, easy meals,” said Wegmans SVP of Real Estate Ralph Uttaro. “Harrison is an ideal place for us to deliver on our promise of incredible customer service, the best ingredients, restaurant-quality prepared foods and consistent low prices.”
The 100-year-old, Rochester-based grocery chain plans to build a standalone 125,000-s.f. store and 8,000-s.f. complementary retail outparcel. The site currently is a vacant office complex that will be demolished before construction begins.
Wegmans and Normandy Real Estate Partners are jointly seeking municipal approvals for the project. According to Wegmans, design plans are not finalized and a construction timeline and projected opening date for the store won’t be determined until all necessary approvals are in place.
The Harrison site is 2.5 miles west of the Connecticut state border and 45 miles northeast of the company’s Woodbridge, New Jersey, store.
In New York State alone, Wegmans operates 46 stores in Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse, the Finger Lakes and the Southern Tier region, and also has announced plans for a store in Brooklyn. The remaining of Wegmans’ 92 stores are located in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Massachusetts.
