RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — On Thursday, Wegmans Food Markets announced the grand opening dates for its two new locations in the Richmond area.
Wegmans Midlothian, a 115,000 square-foot supermarket, will open at Stonehenge Village Shopping Center on Sunday, May 22. The company’s Short Pump store, a 120,000 square-foot supermarket, is set to open at West Broad Marketplace on Sunday, August 7.
Hiring and training are ongoing for both stores. They’re now accepting applications for a variety of part-time customer service and culinary positions across every department.
Some full-time positions remain for chefs, line cooks and restaurant service jobs. Click here if you’d like to apply or call 1-877-WEGMANS (934-6267) for more information. Applications are not accepted at the stores or construction sites and interviews aren’t conducted there.
“Now is the time to apply. Although our stores won’t open for several months, we bring new employees on board quickly in order to provide best-in-class training,” said Wegmans Human Resources Manager Heather Gole. “We’re known for putting employees first, offering competitive pay and benefits, and flexible scheduling. Many of our company leaders today cite Wegmans as their first job and went to college with tuition assistance from our employee scholarship program.”
Since the Wegmans Employee Scholarship Program program began in 1984, more than 32,000 employees have been awarded scholarships totaling $100 million.
Wegmans Midlothian and Wegmans Short Pump will each employ around 550 people, 500 of whom will be new to the company and hired locally. Both locations will also feature The Pub by Wegmans, a full-service family restaurant within the store.
