Wegmans Food Markets Inc. and Northwood Investors LLC and its affiliates have announced plans for a new Wegmans location on the Ballantyne campus. Known for its customer service, restaurant foods, one-stop shopping and low prices, the grocer will be situated at North Community House Road on the east side of Ballantyne, in Charlotte, North Carolina. Wegmans is targeting opening by the third quarter of 2026.

“Four years after opening our first store in North Carolina, we’re excited to announce that Wegmans is coming to Charlotte,” said Dan Aken, VP of real estate and store planning. “We’ve received hundreds of requests from locals asking for a store in their area, and we’ve spent years looking for exactly the right location. We’re thrilled to bring the Wegmans experience to this community.”

At approximately 110,000 square feet, Wegmans’ Ballantyne location will feature all the traditional departments, including an abundant produce department; a wide variety of seafood, meat, bakery, deli and cheese options; and a large selection of wine and beer. In addition, the store will have a market café with indoor and outdoor seating for customers to enjoy Wegmans restaurant foods.

“As we’ve continued to enhance the offerings all across Ballantyne, we’ve seen the need for a more experiential grocer in the community,” said Clifton Coble, SVP of development for Northwood Office. “Wegmans, of course, was top of mind. We recognize how beloved it is throughout the East Coast and North Carolina and are ecstatic for it to join our tenant mix.”

A family-owned supermarket, Wegmans offers choice, quality and value in every aisle. Its chefs make fresh meals throughout the day, and shoppers are invited to engage with the team’s culinary experts to discuss the preparation of meals, pairings and ingredients. The grocer also provides a wide variety of different fruits and vegetables on any given day, including many organic choices.

Each location builds strong partnerships with nearby growers and, in season, offers locally grown produce picked daily and delivered directly to the store.

Wegmans is also known for its high-quality seafood and sushi, meats, baked goods, deli, beer and foods from around the world. Additional offerings include Meals2Go and catering, online shopping capabilities, a floral shop, coffee, home and entertaining options, and family packs.

From its position on North Community House Road, Wegmans will be less than a half mile from Ballantyne’s mixed-use development, The Bowl at Ballantyne, where tenants including Olde Mecklenburg Brewery, North Italia, Flower Child, Harriet’s Hamburgers, Roosters and more are set to open this year.
