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.
