With the opening of a Wegman’s in Lanham, Md. Sunday, residents and officials feel that the often disregarded Prince George’s county can show everyone it has the strength to support high-end shopping.
Neighboring Montgomery County boasts numerous high end grocery stores, including five Whole Foods Markets and three Trader Joe's. Prince George’s County has none. Most of the time luxury retailers skip over Prince George’s County when it comes to business development like Nordstrom’s and Bloomingdales have in the past. Officials are hoping that the success of the new Wegman’s will change all of that.
Currently, Wegman’s has five Northern Virginia locations and six more are planned for the Maryland region including Germantown.
