And it's gonna be huge.
The doors of Wegmans' New York City debut, a 74,000 square-foot store on Flushing Avenue in the Admirals Row development, opens at 7 a.m. -- and you can bet people will be waiting outside in line well before its grand opening.
Wegmans Brooklyn will feature more than 60,000 products, including an extensive restaurant-quality prepared foods department, more than 4,000 organic products, fresh seafood delivered whole and cut to order daily, hundreds of produce items and 300 varieties of imported and domestic cheese.
