At Long Last Wegmans Opens Its Harrison Store
Customers flocked to the newest Wegmans location drawing a crowd even before it opened its doors for the first time in Westchester at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 5 in Harrison.
The market, on Corporate Park Drive near I-287, I-684, I-95 and the Hutchinson River Parkway, was originally scheduled to open earlier this year, but the grand opening ceremony was forced to be pushed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Wegmans is inviting area residents to sign up with an account on its website that can be used to preorder groceries for curbside pickup or delivery. It also has an app for ordering prepared foods and meals.
Due to the virus, Wegmans opted to forego any formal ceremony or ribbon cutting, and the market will be limiting the number of customers in the store at any given time to maintain social distancing.
The new 121,000 square-foot market is offering a variety of restaurant-prepared foods, including The Burger Bar, fresh salads, sandwiches, kids meals, soup, sides, and beer and wine by the glass.
The store includes nearly three dozen registers, hundreds of designated parking spots, and has been outfitted with measures designed to stop any spread of COVID-19 and promote social distancing.
In total, approximately 500 full and part-time staff members are being employed at Wegmans, most of whom were picked and trained out of Westchester.
