PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- The popular grocery chain Wegmans could be planning on opening its first store here in the Pittsburgh area soon. 

According to the Pittsburgh Business Times' sources, the New York-based company is in negotiations to open a store at the Cranberry Springs complex in Cranberry Township near the Penguins' practice facility just off of Route 228 and Interstate 79. 

A spokesperson for Wegmans declined to comment when asked about the plans. 

Wegmans currently has 19 stores in Pennsylvania with some in the Erie and State College areas, but have not expanded into the Pittsburgh region. 

"I would love it. Wegmans is a wonderful store. I'm familiar with them from Erie, Pennsylvania, and State College, Pennsylvania," said Susan Piper from Warrendale.

"Their bakery section is wonderful, and they make the best bread you can ever imagine. My husband loves their cookies, we love all their specialty items. They have a big selection of produce and cheeses and prepared foods." 

It's unclear when Wegmans might close the deal for its first Pittsburgh-area store or when that store could potentially open for business.
