John and Walter Wegman started it all almost 100 years ago with the Rochester Fruit and Vegetable Company. Wegmans is now a grocery giant, with dozens of stores in the northeast and a reputation as one of the best places to work.
Their 86th food palace opened Sunday on a once dusty spot south of Alexandria on Telegraph Road.
We hear yesterday’s lid lifter was a zoo, so hubby went this morning to do some shopping and check it all out.
A bit overwhelming in size, but that’s to be expected.
The Rochester team and the local employees can be proud of what was a smooth and fun experience.
Here’s a few photos.
Welcome to the area!
Note: Wegmans will next come to Tysons.
