Simon Property Group, owner of the Montgomery Mall in Montgomeryville, PA, announced yesterday that it has signed an agreement with Wegmans to open in the former Boscov’s space. According to Wegmans, the Boscov’s space will be demolished, and the supermarket will be built in its place but will not connect to the mall. A timeframe hasn’t been announced.

A Wegmans representative stated that the company opens three stores per year, and 2012 will see the opening of the King of Prussia store (in April) plus two stores in Maryland.

The manager of the Montgomery Mall said the Wegmans store will be approximately 140,000 square feet, and will also be the first Wegmans to open at a Simon property.

Assuming the King of Prussia store opens on schedule, the Montgomeryville store will be Wegmans 16th in Pennsylvania.
