Wegmans is expanding. The grocery store chain confirmed plans to build two stores in the suburbs of Richmond, Virginia.

“Over the years, we have had countless requests to open a Wegmans store in the Richmond area, so we are delighted to finally announce that we’re headed there,” says Ralph Uttaro, Wegmans senior vice president of real estate. “We look forward to the day when we can welcome customers to our stores and deliver on our promise of incredible customer service, the best ingredients, restaurant-quality prepared foods, and consistent low prices.”

The new stores will be in Midlothian, Chesterfield County and Short Pump, Henrico County.

Officials says the stores will be similar in size and design to its current Virginia stores, which range in size from 120,000 to 140,000-square feet. We're told each store will employ 550 to 600 people in full and part-time positions.
