Wegmans Opening Philadelphia Neighborhoods

Wegmans Opening in South Philly? Close

Wegmans announces plans regarding new store openings, but not where everyone has been anticipating.

Rumor has been floating around about a Wegmans opening in South Philadelphia for years now. Most of it was wishful thinking, with a lot of wishing. In fact, the Wegmans fan base is so strong around here that there are dozens of Facebook fan pages and support groups based around it – despite the lack of stores. It doesn’t help that their are so many Philadelphia locations that would be ideal for the popular supermarket.

It has been confirmed again and again that Wegmans is not coming to Broad and Washington and most definitely not coming to Snyder Plaza, where ShopRite will soon move from.

All is not lost, however, as Wegmans has announced its plans to open two new stores in Pennsylvania. The first one opens in just a couple of weeks in Concordville. The second location, pending opening date, will be located in Lancaster. Although not in Philadelphia, fans of the store can be hopeful that Wegmans is expanding its stores and approaching the city.

Concordville, PA

Nov. 8, 2015

  1. We need a Wegmans or a Giant in south philly regardless. Shop rite moving to Whitman plaza in my opinion will not be a good move. No one likes going there as the traffic there is impossible. Shop rite also is now the only food market within several miles and has raised their prices dramatically since the closing of Pathmark and Superfresh. I refuse to pay shop rite’s now much higher prices. They know they got us by the ball$ and we need competition to move in immediately. I now drive all the way to New Jersey for my food shopping. With gas and tolls, I still get a much better deal there.

    1. Tom, I agree about Wegmans/Giant. As for traffic, the drive Oregon ave is not bad at all. It’s only a few minutes from the current location. The move from Snyder Plaza to Whitman Plaza is not very far. There are many more bus routes that run to Whitman Plaza, which makes it easer for those without cars. As far as driving is concerned, I-76 is right there… I hate driving on columbus blvd so I just go to broad and down Oregon ave. Try different routes if you are having difficulties.
