The grocer plans to hire 700 people total, including part-time workers, to staff the 145,000-square-foot store at Snowden River Parkway and McGaw Road. It will be the fifth location in Maryland for the 79-store chain.
The Columbia store will offer a large prepared foods department, as many as 700 fresh produce items, 200 types of imported and domestic cheese, and a Market Café restaurant, Wegmans said.
An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated when Wegmans would begin hiring. The Sun regrets the error.
