Weis Markets Completes Expansion of Willow Street Store and Plans Manheim Expansion


Weis Markets today said it has completed the 10,000-square-foot expansion and extensive remodel of its Willow Street store and announced its plans to expand its store on Doe Street in Manheim later this summer.

Weis Markets’ Willow Street store, which was open during construction, is located on Willow Street Pike. As a result of the expansion/remodel, this store now has the standard features of the company’s latest store design, which offers larger perishable departments, more variety, a larger pharmacy and an increased selection of organic and natural products in every department.

“We have upgraded and improved our Willow Street store in every conceivable way. Essentially, we’ve added the equivalent of seven additional aisles to our Willow Street store. As a result, our store now offers more of everything,” said Dennis Curtin, Weis Markets’ spokesman. “We appreciate our customers’ patience during the project and look forward to serving them in what is essentially a new store.”

Weis Markets Grand Re-Opening will take place on Sunday May 20. As part of the Grand Re-Opening, Weis Markets announced its $25,000 donation to Lancaster General for Phase II of its Women’s Heart Health program in Lancaster County. The store is also making individual donations of $1000 to the Lampeter Fire Company No. 1 and the Willow Street Fire Company.
