The new Wegmans supermarket in Chapel Hill is opening on Wednesday, February 24, 2021.
The 99,000 sq. ft. store will open at 9 a.m. and is located at 1810 Fordham Road, Chapel Hill, NC.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, you likely won't see any big Grand Opening events on Feb. 24. When the West Cary Wegmans opened in July 2020, the store set up a designated line-up area outside for customers in order to keep the capacity in the store at or under 50%, which was approx. 1,000 people including employees.
Wegmans is starting the part-time hiring for its next store in Wake Forest, which should be opening in May, 2021.
“We began our journey into North Carolina two years ago and have met the most amazing employees and customers,” said division manager Blaine Forkell. “We are eager to open the doors of these next two stores and help serve the needs of our communities. Our store management teams have been working hard to create a welcoming, safe place for new employees and customers to work and shop.”
