Wegmans Chestnut Hill will hold its grand opening on Sunday, April 27, according to a press release from Wegmans Food Markets. The wine, beer, and spirits shop on the store's second floor will open almost a month earlier on Saturday, March 29.
The Chestnut Hill Square location on Route 9 is an approximately 80,000 square-foot supermarket that includes the second-level, 10,500 square-foot liquor store. This will be the second Wegmans location in Massachusetts. The company has also announced plans for a store in the Fenway.
“We’re thrilled to announce the grand opening date of our new Chestnut Hill store, one that we’ve been looking forward to for some time,” said Rich Boscia, store manager. “The Greater Boston community has already welcomed us with open arms. We can’t wait to provide our Chestnut Hill customers with the incredible customer service and the unique shopping experience that people have come to expect from Wegmans.”
The store is still accepting applications for full and part-time positions. One hundred percent of the 350 part-time positions will be hired locally. Applications can be found online at www.wegmans.com/careers.
“At Wegmans, we pride ourselves on our reputation for offering an excellent working environment for our employees, as this is the 17th year in a row we’ve appeared on FORTUNE magazine’s list of the ‘100 Best Companies to Work For,’” said Marybeth Stewart, Wegmans human resources manager for New England. “We’re continuing to hire for our Chestnut Hill store and hope those in the Greater Boston community looking to start their career or begin a new chapter in their career will consider Wegmans as their future employer.”
