Jonathan Weis, owner of the new Weis Market in Dingmans Ferry, awarded four checks of $1,500 each to Delaware Valley School District, the Holy Trinity Food Pantry, Delaware Township Fire Department, and the Dingman Township Fire Department at the ribbon-cutting held at the store last month.
“The store employs more than 140 new full- and part-time associates,” he said.
He said the new store has an expansive produce department with a wide selection of organic produce, a beer cave and wine café, a full-service seafood department with lobster tank, a full-service meat department with on-premise, custom-cut certified Angus beef, sushi prepared in-store daily, a deli offering a wide selection of sliced meats and cheeses along with a heat and serve meal section, an organic and natural foods store within a store, a section devoted to Eastern European cuisine, eight self-scan checkout lanes, a full-service, drive-through pharmacy, a fuel center, and Weis 2 Go Online ordering with curbside pick-up.
Mike Sullivan, executive director of Pike County Development Authority, said the building’s shopping area is 46,000 square feet, plus 22,000 square feet warehouse area, for a total of 68,000 square feet. He said it’s been in the planning and building stages since 2014. The store rests in the center of four surrounding townships.
