FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Officials are bracing for the grand opening of a new Wegmans grocery store in Frederick to draw
thousands on its first day.
Store officials say more than 23,000 people already had signed up in advance for a shoppers card by Thursday. The store is scheduled to open Sunday morning.
There’s one new innovation for the company’s Maryland stores. It had never developed a Maryland-style crab cake, so Wegmans has created one.
Wegmans’ fourth Maryland store is slated to open in September in Bel Air.
