Wegmans to open first Manhattan store in 2023

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Wegmans is opening its second store in New York City, the grocery chain announced Thursday.

The Manhattan Wegmans, scheduled to open in the second half of 2023, will be located at 770 Broadway, the former site of the Astor Place Kmart, in the heart of Greenwich Village.

Under the terms of the 30-year lease, Wegmans will occupy space on both the street and lower levels of 770 Broadway for a total of roughly 82,000 square feet.

“We are so excited to bring Wegmans to Manhattan. This is something we’ve been dreaming about and working toward for a long time,” President and CEO of Wegmans Colleen Wegman said. “The community’s response to the opening of our Brooklyn store had an excitement and energy that you can only experience in New York City. You can feel that energy returning to the city, and we are thrilled to be a part of it.”

Wegmans opened its first New York City store in the Brooklyn Navy Yard in October 2019.
