CHESTERFIELD, Va. – The groundbreaking ceremony for metro-Richmond’s first Wegmans Food Market is this week.

The groundbreaking ceremony for the Midlothian Wegmans store will be held at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, April 14. The 120,000 square-foot Wegmans will anchor the planned Stonehenge Village Shopping Center.

The development will contain approximately 230,000 square feet of retail uses, including the grocery store, restaurants and other shops.

The grand opening is expected in the spring of 2016 and will be the first Wegmans to open in the Richmond region.

Another Wegmans is slated to open in Short Pump in June 2016, in West Broad Marketplace, a large retail development on West Broad Street near North Gayton Road that will be anchored by Wegmans and Cabela’s, an outdoor gear outfitter.

That site is located just over a half-mile west of the Short Pump Mall and approximately 13 miles northwest of downtown Richmond.

Each of Wegmans’ Richmond-area stores is expected to employ 550 to 600 people in full- and part-time positions.

Wegmans currently operates six stores in Virginia and will open a seventh in Alexandria in June.
