Ahead of 2023 opening, Wegmans begins hiring for Reston location

The long-anticipated opening of Wegmans in Reston is nearing, as the grocer begins hiring for the 85,000-square-foot business.

Wegmans is set to open in early 2023 at the new Halley Rise development, a $1.4 million mixed-use neighborhood located at the intersection of Reston Parkway and Sunrise Valley Drive.

The company has begun hiring for 150 full-time positions ahead of the opening. Positions range from entry-level management to culinary roles like chefs, prep cooks and dishwashers. Overall, the grocer is expected to employ more than 400 people, most of which will be hired locally.

The new store will include a market cafe, coffee shop and The Burger Bar.

“We bring new employees on board to begin training quickly after they’re hired,” said Store Manager Katie Sullivan. “Our commitment to in-depth training is the main reason we begin the hiring process so early. These jobs provide competitive pay with industry-leading benefits, flexible scheduling, and most importantly, a great place to work.”

Applications will not be accepted at the construction site, and hiring for part-time positions is expected to begin at a later date.

The grocer is part of Brookfield Properties’ transformation of a 36-acre office park at the door of the Reston Town Center Metro station into a mixed-use neighborhood with 3.5 million square feet of housing, retail, modern offices and open spaces. Up to 1,500 residential units, 250,000 square feet of retail, and 1.5 million square feet of office space are planned.

In 2020, Wegmans anticipated it would open before the end of this year, but the company later revised that timeline to early 2023.
