Making Hooville Happier
When it comes to working together, we at Wegmans know a thing or two. And while our stores feature lively atmospheres, friendly people and the passion to make customers smile, we also know the importance of the communities around us. That’s why we’re proud to call Charlottesville, Virginia, our newest home. An historic city with a vibrant and welcoming environment, Hooville, as it’s known by residents, is where many current employees live. With that local mindset built directly into the DNA of our current team members and future employees, we’re building a family in the middle of the Old Dominion State.
A Unique Community
What makes you most excited about the C’ville store and coming to work every day? “How we take care of the employees; it is just a great atmosphere.” – Horacio S.
If you’re not yet totally familiar with C’Ville, we’re here to help give you some insights. The city rests along the Rivanna River, west of the Southwest Mountains. As a city that’s existed since 1762, you could imagine its historical importance with roots in the Revolutionary War. Then there's Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s residence, which is the only U.S. home recognized as a World Heritage Site by the United Nations.
The city’s offerings don’t stop there, though. The excitement of Hooville extends outside historic landmarks and into breweries, dancing, and concert halls. And with its proximity to the University of Virginia, excitement finds itself on the court of a Cavaliers basketball game, or a last-second field goal to win it at a UVA football game.
My favorite thing to do in Hooville? “Hiking, Whitehall, Skyline, and Humpback Rock! The views and nature are everywhere.” – Al V.
