Wegmans, a popular Rochester-based family owned grocery store chain, announced plans Wednesday of opening its first location in the Hudson Valley, right near the junction of I-287 and I-684.
The location, on the Platinum Mile in Harrison, is a 20-acre space now filled by several vacant office buildings at 106, 108 and 110 Corporate Park Drive that would be demolished if the plan is approved.
“We look forward to the day when we can welcome customers into our Harrison store and help them make delicious, easy meals,” said Ralph Uttaro, Wegmans' senior vice president of real estate in a statement. “Harrison is an ideal place for us to deliver on our promise of incredible customer service, the best ingredients, restaurant-quality prepared foods and consistent low prices.”
Wegmans said the two-story Harrison store would include a cafe but that design plans are "not finalized and a construction timeline and projected opening date for the store won’t be determined until all necessary approvals are in place."
Wegmans, which was founded 100 years ago, currently has 92 stores in the Northeast.
