Wegmans' much-hyped New York City debut finally has an official date.

The Rochester, New York-based retailer will open its Brooklyn location on Oct. 27. The 74,000-square-foot store is on Flushing Avenue, in the Admirals Row development.

“The Brooklyn community has been eagerly awaiting the opening date for this store,” says Todd Ferrera, Wegmans' vice president and district manager. “Oct. 27 is just around the corner, and we can’t wait to celebrate with everyone.”

Wegmans also says it is still recruiting for a few positions within the store, including prep cook, line cook, lead cook and full-time customer service positions throughout the store.
