Wegmans will close its supermarket in Natick, a suburb of Boston, Mass. — one of the company’s largest locations — later this summer.
The Rochester, N.Y.-based grocer made the announcement Thursday.
The 134,000 square-foot multi-level store with 365 employees, 142 full-time and 223 part-time, first opened in 2018 at the Natick Mall. All employees are being offered jobs at other stores within the state.
“Unfortunately, with this non-traditional location we are unable to attract enough customers for our business model to work,” said Brien MacKendrick, Wegmans New England human resources director.
An exact closing date will be announced at a later date.
Wegmans has five additional stores in the Greater-Boston area. The company said it does not have plans to close any other stores.
