Update on Wegmans near Ft. Belvoir

tcamp Jan 22, 2014 12:04 PM

I've been wondering about the opening date. Looks like it has been pushed back to early 2015.

    I figure they must have either (a) not paid enough graft to the local commissioners or (b) dug up an Indian burial ground, unleashing the Curse of the Free Food Samples.

      Does anyone know if this structure is actually built? It sounds like it is just a delay based on the articles I have read. Is it possible (I know anything is possible) that it just nixes the deal?

        No, the structure is not yet up as far as I can see from Telegraph. The outlying structures are up and they continue to grade, build interior roads, etc.

        I'm sure it is just a delay, not cancellation. That area is a bit short on grocery stores.

        I'm wondering if this is some sorta trend with new grocers. G Mart was supposed to open a while ago, and it's still closed. Here's a "coming soon" article from over a year ago.

          I don't know much about G Mart's processes so I can't comment on that. However, I thought that Wegmans already had something of a structure in place? I also thought that Wegmans site selection process is so thorough that a deal being cancelled this far in the process would be nearly impossible

            I keep going by hoping to see action.

              I've been doing that for the past 6 months and I've pretty much given up.

            Where is this? I can't seem to place it in my head.
            Further down Rt 1, CostCo also encountered tremendous delays between lot clearing and construction.

              Corner of Telegraph and Beulah. Across Beulah from Landsdowne Center where there is a CVS, Olympians, etc.
