Wegmans is closing one of its largest stores in the United States

Wegmans announced Thursday that it is closing one of its largest stores in the United States

The grocery store located in Natick, Massachusetts at 1245 Worcester St. will close later this summer.

The location, which is 134,000 square meters and is on several levels, employs 365 people. Of these, 142 work full-time and 223 part-time.

It opened at the Natick Mall in 201[ads1]8, but was unable to secure enough of a customer base to keep the store afloat. The store was the supermarket chain’s first multi-level store in a large shopping center.

“Unfortunately, with this non-traditional location, we are unable to attract enough customers to make our business model work,” said Wegmans New England Human Resources Director Brien MacKendrick.

The closing date for the store has not yet been announced, but all affected employees are being offered jobs at other Wegmans locations in Massachusetts.

The company has no plans to close any more stores as of now. It operates five other Wegmans in the Greater-Boston area, including Medford, Burlington, Chestnut Hill, Westwood and Northborough.

There are about 110 Wegmans locations across the East Coast, including nine in New Jersey.
