Wegmans looking to fill jobs for new Harrison storePosted: Updated:
The long-awaited Wegmans Food Market in Harrison is switching into high gear.
The 121,000-square-foot store will be just off I-287 at 106 Corporate Park Drive in Harrison and will offer a variety of prepared food and restaurant options, including Wegmans' famous Burger Bar.
The location was supposed to open this spring, but the opening date was pushed back several times. News 12 was told this is because of all the infrastructure work that had to be done on the property.
The supermarket, consistently ranked as one of the best companies to work for, is expected to bring hundreds of jobs to Westchester.
The store is expected to open on Sunday, June 7.
People interested in employment can call (914) 539-370. Interviews will be held at the company’s White Plains office at 1133 Westchester Ave.
The Harrison mayor says he's not too concerned about Wegmans pushing out smaller grocery stores in town. He says Wegman's is a "destination" location and believe people will continue to visit their local grocer.
