Brooklyn Navy Yard’s massive Wegmans to open this fall

The 74,000-square-foot supermarket will create 500 jobs

The massive Wegmans that’s taking shape on site of
former officers’ housing
at the Brooklyn Navy Yard is set to
debut this fall. The supermarket has been in the works for years
and at one point had
anticipated opening dates
in 2017 and again in late 2018.

A store manager for the upstate-based grocer chain told Fox 5
NY
that the hiring office has opened and is planning to fill
500 jobs, including 150 full-time positions. “We’re always
looking for hyper-local but really we’re looking at just good
people,” said manager Kevin Cuff to Fox 5. The hiring process
will begin in February.

The building will replace dilapidated homes along history
Admiral’s Row, where naval officers once lived during the Civil
War era; those buildings were
demolished in 2016
. The store will span 74,000 square feet,
across the ground and mezzanine floors with light manufacturing
operating on the tops floors.

We’ll update as the exact opening date becomes available.
