Report: Wegmans to enter Massachusetts
New York City Wegmans Food Markets plans to open its first Massachusetts store, according to The Boston Globe. The grocer is slated to open a 135,000-sq.-ft. store that will anchor a $100 million shopping and residential complex called Northborough Crossing.
"Over the next five to seven years, we might have half a dozen locations in Massachusetts," said Ralph Uttaro, VP real estate development for Wegmans, in the report. "We’re looking for high-density areas with high levels of income and education."
The Northborough store is scheduled to open in fall 2011.
