retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The News & Observer reports that Wegmans has identified a location in Wake Forest, North Carolina, that will be where it puts its fifth store in the state.

The store, according to the story, “is expected to be around 100,000 square feet. No timeline has been given for the project.”

“Wegmans is in the middle of a large expansion into the North Carolina market,” the writes. “The chain, which is steadily expanding down the East Coast, has already announced plans to build stores in Chapel Hill, Raleigh and two in Cary.”
KC's View:
Big commitment, setting up a big battle among Publix, Harris Teeter, and Wegmans, among others.
