marlob@herald-mail.com BOONSBORO - After 25 years with Weis Markets, Dave Johnson has come home ... well, almost. As the manager of the Boonsboro Weis Market superstore that is to open today, Johnson is excited to be at the helm of the 158th store in the chain. And he is happy to be working close to home. "I'm from Wolfsville, and in my years with Weis, I have been as far away as Montgomery County," Johnson said. Interest in the Boonsboro store was so high that some neighbors actually brought lawn chairs into the parking lot to watch the construction, which began in April, Johnson said.
