Wegmans to start on $40M addition to Perinton store

Wegmans Food Markets Inc. plans to break ground on a 31,300-square-foot expansion at its Perinton store on Monday at 10 a.m. 

Once completed, the store will be a total of 122,000 square feet. Wegmans will add 125 full-time and part-time employees, along with construction jobs to complete the addition.

The store’s addition will cost $40 million and is expected to open in November, officials said.

The expansion will take several months to complete and will include fresh food departments, such as produce, bakery, meat, seafood, prepared foods, and Market Cafe seating for 180 people, officials said. 

The Pub by Wegmans—a full-service restaurant—will be added to the store and will have a seating capacity of 86, officials said. The pub is expected to open in the first quarter 2016.

The parking lot will be finished when the expansion is complete and then the focus will be on the store’s existing footprint which will take a little over a year, officials said.
