Forks Township Superstore
Monday, August 2nd, 2010
Weis Markets today announced it has begun the construction of a 70,000-square-foot shopping center in Forks Township near Easton, PA. This center will include a 63,400-square-foot superstore with the company’s newest store design and a gas and go station.
The Center is located on 3825 Sullivan Trail at the intersection of Uhler Road and Sullivan Trail. Site work began late last week. The Company expects to complete construction of the center and open the store in the late spring of 2011.
This is Weis Markets’ third new store announcement. In July it announced new store projects in two Pennsylvania locations: West Lawn and Bellefonte.
As part of this project, Weis Markets will introduce its newest store design featuring expansive perishable departments, a pharmacy and large center store and HBC departments. Each department will offer increased selection and variety.
This new store design will also utilize advanced refrigeration and climate control technologies designed to lessen its impact on the ozone layer and climate change. These technologies will reduce the store’s refrigerant charge (usage) by 50% compared to a conventional supermarket.
It will also feature a number of energy reducing technologies, including: solar/thermal rated windows and reflective roofs and skylights for natural lighting.
