Most Anticipated Supermarket Opening

Good things come to those who wait, which certainly applies to last April’s announcement that Wegmans is finally opening a store in lower Montgomery County. The new market will be situated at the corner of Halpine Road and Rockville Pike in Twinbrook Quarter, a yet-to-be-built 18-acre mixed-use development with a promenade and park. Wegmans is seeking up to 90,000 square feet for the Rockville store, which will open sometime after 2019 (there’s no date yet). Compared with other Wegmans in less densely developed areas, the store will have “a bit of a smaller footprint,” says company spokeswoman Valerie Fox, “but with all the same bells and whistles.” Since 2013, when a Wegmans opened in Germantown, residents have gotten a taste of what makes the place such a destination, including its standout produce, bakery, cheese and prepared-foods departments, a high-quality house brand, reasonable prices and great customer service.
