Wegmans Food Markets has begun hiring and training full-time employees for its Virginia Beach store, which is scheduled to open next spring.

The 113,000-square-foot supermarket will be located near the intersection of Virginia Beach and Independence boulevards.

The store will employ about 500 people, 185 of whom will fill full-time positions. The company said a majority of store employees will be hired locally.

The full-time positions range from entry-level management jobs to customer service positions and culinary roles such as chefs and line cooks.

Hiring for part-time positions will begin at a later date.

The Virginia Beach store is one of three Wegmans stores scheduled to open next year. The other two are in Raleigh, N.C., and Brooklyn, N.Y.

The Rochester, N.Y.-based company said the Virginia Beach store will be its furthest south in a supermarket chain that currently includes 97 stores.

Wegmans, which is family owned, employs 48,000 people in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Massachusetts.
