Wegmans, one of the most beloved grocery chains in America, will open its first Manhattan store in 2023, the company said Thursday.
The store will be at 770 Broadway, the site of the recently shuttered Astor Place Kmart. It is expected to open in the second half of that year.
The 30-year lease for the street and lower levels of the building will give the store 82,000 square feet of space.
