Wegmans confirms plans to build a store in Wake Forest

Town of Wake Forest News

Wegmans Food Markets has confirmed plans to build a store in Wake Forest. The store will be situated on the south side of Dr. Calvin Jones Highway/NC 98 Bypass between US 1/Capital Boulevard and Siena Drive, just west of Ligon Mill Road.

Wegmans has signed a purchase agreement and is jointly seeking municipal approvals to build an anchor store as part of a larger mixed-use development by Stiles.

Wegmans Wake Forest is expected to be up to 100,000 sq. ft. in size and similar in design to Wegmans’ other newest stores. A timeline for opening the store will be announced once all necessary approvals are in place.

The Wake Forest location is approximately 11 miles northeast of the Raleigh site along Wake Forest Road where Wegmans is scheduled to open its first store in North Carolina in 2019. Plans are also underway for one Wegmans location in Chapel Hill and two sites in Cary.
