Mount Vernon: Wegmans' New Store Opens June 14


The new Wegmans grocery store at Hilltop Village Center is scheduled to open June 14.

By the time Store Manager Mike Dempsey opens Wegmans’ newest 126,000 sq. ft. supermarket in Hilltop Village Center (corner of Telegraph and Beulah) on Sunday, June 14, he will have built a team of 550 employees.

Dempsey had been a store manager previously, at the Lake Manassas Wegmans in Gainesville and the Potomac Wegmans in Woodbridge. This store will be the first in Virginia to include The Pub, Wegmans’ casual dining restaurant that serves freshly prepared seasonal foods and a selection of craft beers, food-friendly wines, and seasonal cocktails. There is also the Market Café with a selection of prepared foods and indoor and outdoor seating for 300.

Alexandria is Wegmans’ 86th store, the 7th in Virginia. The company’s first Virginia store opened in 2004 in Sterling. Today, Wegmans has more than 3,600 Virginia employees, and that number will grow next year when it opens two stores in Richmond and one in Charlottesville.
