Wegmans delays store opening downstate

Wegmans is delaying the opening of its store in Harrison, Westchester County. 

In an announcement made earlier this week, the manager of the store near White Plains mentioned “unprecedented times” as a reason for the delay but didn’t specifically mention the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

The store had been scheduled to open June 7. Typically an opening draws help from headquarters and other stores around the 101-store company to help in the launch. Currently, all stores are dealing with a huge crush of business as consumers try to stock up as they expect to be staying home for extended periods of time. 

“Given these unprecedented times, we feel this is the right thing to do,” said Matthew Dailor, manager of the Wegmans store in Harrison. “We are so excited to be part of the Harrison community and can’t wait to start serving our local customers. We’re keeping in touch with our community organizations to partner with them as this situation continues to develop.” The company said a new opening date will be announced later. 

Training and hiring at the store continue. Wegmans has not yet announced any changes in the planned openings of stores in West Cary, N.C., and Tysons Corner, Va., later this year. The North Carolina store is scheduled to open Aug. 2. while Tysons Corner is due to open in the fall.
