Weis Markets to Move Into Towson

The grocery chain plans its first central Baltimore County location at Towson Place.

(Updated: 4:20 p.m.) A mid-Atlantic grocery chain is planning its first Towson location.

Weis Markets will open at the site of the former Super Fresh at Towson Place shopping center by the end of the year, according to company officials.

"We will have to do a considerable amount of work to get it up and running. It will be a multi-million-dollar investment," said Weis spokesman Dennis Curtin. "Hopefully, if all goes well, we will have this up and running and open late in the fourth quarter of this year or early in the first quarter of 2013."

The Super Fresh that had been there  as part of that chain's massive downsizing.

The 55,000-square-foot store will employ about 100 people, Curtin said

"They are going to work very quickly to get it remodeled," said County Councilman David Marks, who Curtin credited for helping the company secure the space. "They're a good supermarket. They have a good reputation."

Weis has locations in five states from Maryland to New York, including two in Perry Hall. This is the chain's first foray into central Baltimore County.

"It's a natural extention of our market for us," Curtin said.

In an April Visions for Vacancies post, to guess what might go in the space.

Excellent News for the area, & Towson Place in general. This is one of fav Markets. It's a Clean & Organized chain that no matter what store I've been in I've had a good experience. There Products are fresh, & well presented. There Prices, & Rewards Program are also quite good. For those who haven't shopped there b4 you'll be pleased with Weis.

Awesome! I love Weis. Although I'd have been a lot more impressed if it were a Wegmans but that site isn't big enough for them anyway.
