Weis Markets today said it had completed the extensive remodel and expansion of its Eastern Boulevard store in Hagerstown. Work on the project began in January and was completed in late October. As part of the Grand-Reopening celebration, Weis Markets presented $28,520 to the Maryland Food Bank and $10,000 to the Antietam Health Care Foundation for a teen parenting and counseling program. “We’ve made a lot of improvements to our Eastern Boulevard store. We’ve expanded our produce, deli and bakery departments and have increased the variety in every department,” said Dennis V. Curtin, Weis Markets Spokesman. “Ultimately, we’ve improved every aspect of our store’s shopping experience. “Our company and associates are strong believers in giving back to the communities we serve,” added Mr. Curtin. “Our donation to the Maryland Food bank is part of our recently concluded Fight Hunger program which resulted in donations that will provide 328,000 meals to the less fortunate in communities through out our market place.” The store added 3,000-square-feet in additional space and now totals 68,000-square-feet. The newly expanded store has:
- An expanded produce department with an increased selection of organic and ethnic produce
- An expanded deli with a sit-down café
- Larger dairy, frozen and grocery departments, which offer increased selection and more gourmet and ethnic products
