Montgomery Mall has a big empty space.  When Boscov’s reorganized a few years ago, the Montgomery Mall store closed and has been empty ever since.  Now Wegman’s has announced plans to become the newest anchor store at the mall. 

Wegman’s will demolish the old Boscov’s and build a new store.  The store will be 125,000 square-feet, which is the same size as the former Boscov’s.  The opening date will be determined by how fast Wegman’s can fit this new store into their schedule.  2012 is out but 2013 is in the running.

Wegman’s is breaking ground by becoming the first supermarket to open at a Simon Property Group mall.

Wegman’s has a store open in Collegeville and another store opening (Spring of 2012) in King of Prussia.
