The much anticipated Weis Markets at Route 100 and Glenlivet Road in Fogelsville is expected to open before the end of the year, a source familiar with the project said Wednesday.
The company would not confirm a date, but Upper Macungie Community Development Director Ken Molony said the projected date is in early December.
The new 68,000-square-foot superstore, with its energy efficient design, is expected to achieve U.S. Green Building Council's LEED certification for significantly reducing its environmental impact. The store will use advanced techniques to reduce refrigerant emissions, the company has said.
The Weis signage is up at the store and the lot is paved. Work continues on the rest of the building, which will have 12,000 square feet of rental space.
