Wegmans expansion in Amherst to include added jobs and The Pub by Wegmans, a full-service restaurant

Buffalo, NY, April 17, 2015 -

Wegmans is making another major investment in Erie County, with a nearly $40 million expansion and renovation project at its 8270 Transit Road store in Williamsville. The 14,000 sq. ft. addition will include expanding the stores’ Market Café, available to seat 165 people. The kitchens will be remodeled with a “green” refrigeration system. Every department in the store will receive upgrades and new equipment.

Our longtime customers and employees know well that we’ve outgrown our Transit Road store," says Mike Keating, sr. vice president of the Buffalo division. “We are looking forward to the day when we open the doors to a larger and beautifully remodeled store with more choice, and the first Wegmans restaurant in the Buffalo area.”

The Pub by Wegmans

Wegmans is proud to introduce The Pub to WNY. The first Pub opened in 2009 in Collegeville, Pennsylvania. It is now in five Pennsylvania stores. The Pub by Wegmans will open its first Virginia location in Alexandria, in June. This is a full-service restaurant inside the grocery store. Led by an executive chef and inspired by the incomparably fresh ingredients sold on-site in the store, The Pub by Wegmans will serve an inspired array of dishes that go beyond typical pub standards, as well as cocktails, wine and an extensive selection of craft beer.

In the upcoming weeks, the store will be looking to hire for added positions in the store, as well as food service positions for The Pub restaurant. Full and part-time positions will be available. Interested applicants should apply at Wegmans.com/careers.
