Columbia Wegmans to Open June 17

The new Wegmans Food Markets’ Columbia store will house a 432-seat restaurant and market serving up made-to-order sushi, ice cream, a hot-and-cold veggie bar and other prepared foods. 
The 145,000-square-foot store will open June 17 at Snowden River Parkway and McGaw Road and feature a two-story parking garage. It will be the Rochester, New York company’s fifth Maryland store. 

The new store will employ nearly 700, says Wendy Webster, who will manage the Columbia location. Webster is the former store manager at Hunt Valley. Service Manager Rob Griffin and Executive Chef Tom Schwarzweller, who previously worked at Hunt Valley, will join her. 

The Columbia Wegmans will offer more than 70,000 individual products, including fresh seafood delivered daily, up to 700 fresh produce items, and 300 varieties of imported and domestic cheese. Wegmans is known for drawing customers who will drive as far as 30 miles to shop at one of its stores.
