Wegmans will not return to 24-hour operation

The question on many shoppers’ minds has been whether the beloved grocery chain Wegmans will return to 24-hour operations. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Wegmans stores across New York reduced their hours to allow for more time for overnight cleaning and restocking, leading many customers to wonder if those hours will return to pre-pandemic levels.

Wegmans officials have now confirmed that the company has no plans to return to 24-hour operations for the foreseeable future. This decision follows a trend that has seen two local stores in Gates and Irondequoit reduce their hours before the pandemic even began in 2019.


While the end of the COVID-19 emergency declaration this spring, announced by President Joe Biden, has sparked hope for a return to normal operations, Wegmans’ stance on their hours of operation remains unchanged.

For many shoppers, Wegmans’ commitment to maintaining their 6 a.m. to midnight schedule, even as the pandemic comes to an end, may come as a disappointment.
