Weis Markets breaks ground on what will be its first LEED-certified store

BY Katherine Boccaccio

Sunbury, Pa. — Weis Markets on Thursday announced it has begun the construction of an environmentally innovative 65,000-sq.-ft. superstore in Fogelsville, Pa.

When construction is completed, the store is expected to achieve U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED certification for measurably reducing or mitigating its environmental impact for sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, material selection and indoor environmental quality.

The Fogelsville unit will be the grocer’s first LEED-certified store.

It will incorporate advanced refrigeration technologies to reduce refrigerant emissions by 60%, compared with the typical supermarket. These systems decrease the store’s impact on the ozone layer and climate change.
