Chatter: Wegmans May Open May-June 2012

Does this look like the inside of the Columbia Wegmans?
The latest chatter on the I Want The Columbia Wegmans Facebook page says that the Columbia store is slated to open in May or June 2012.

Myles Gray posted that comment.  He wrote that the employment office would then open in January-February 2012.  I can't vouch for anyone on the Internet, but Myles says he works for Wegmans and he posted several other photos that appear to be inside the second-level of the construction site.  That certainly looks like an employee's photos.  I appreciate the updates.  People are very excited.

I have an idea to call Wegmans' public relations and see if they'd take someone on a tour to post videos on the Facebook page.  Please join the Facebook group if you want to watch other folks discuss the Wegmans.  If you're already a member, then you can approve anyone else to join.

Looking at the building as it's going up, it seems smaller than Hunt Valley or PG County. Is it my imagination or will this be a smaller store?

Look at the building from Snowden, it looks smaller in terms of width, but when I drove down McGaw Road, noticed how deep the store looks compared to other I have been to.

The second level is going to have some retail on it. Hunt Valley has no retail on the second level. The Columbia store is 145,000 square feet. Hunt Valley is 140,000 square feet. The size of the Columbia store was in a Columbia Patch article a couple months ago. It did not say if that included the second level.

It is my understanding that this is going to be the largest Wegmans built to date....I hope so!
