ALEXANDRIA, VA – A new Wegmans grocery store located at 150 Stovall St. will celebrate its grand opening on Wednesday, May 11. And there’s even more good news for job seekers. The store will employ 450 people, which means there are still openings for many part-time and some full-time jobs.
The 81,300 square foot supermarket, still under construction as of this writing, is in Carlyle Crossings near Eisenhower Ave.
“Recruiting and training is well underway, and we are looking for more enthusiastic candidates to complete our team ahead of opening day,” said manager Mike Anthony. “We are excited to begin the countdown to May 11, when we can welcome the community of Alexandria to our doorstep.”
