I never heard bad stuff about their gas, but do know people with performance vehicles that will only buy gas at Sunoco, and Shell, so maybe there is something to it.
Good decision

Wow, so many folks in this thread spend so much time exploring and thinking about convenience stores. Am I the only one here that almost never goes into one? I buy gas and skip the trip into the store by making sure I have food and water on the road. If I do happen to go in one, I'm in and out quickly.

Quick Trip is clean, but if you don't want a hot dog, forget it.

By the way, do you know if Woodstown is named after this Wood family?
I didn't know that.

As discussed, the pretzels are an embarrassment to Philly pretzel culture. Speaking of an embarrassment to Philly, can we talk about how pathetic their cheesesteaks are?

Sheetz has respectable hoagies that are only a notch below Wawa's, but it shreds Wawa on non-hoagie items. Look at all this variety, and I've never had something that was bad:
Sheetz Prices in Harrisburg, PA 17111
I haven't been in a Sheetz in five tears, but I remember having a terrific pretzel bread (roll?) grilled ham and cheese sandwich.

They seem to have pretty much all of the same types of frozen, refrigerated, and packaged foods. I don't see a big difference.

Wow, so let me get this straight. Because I have a few gripes about Wawa and start a thread about them, you suggest I leave the area? Seems a little outlandish, donít you think?

Almost everyone in this thread agrees that the pretzels are bad and the hoagies are subpar. I wonít worship Wawa just because itís locally owned because I think thereís a few things they could do better.

Woodstown. I should have been able to figure that out.

I'm not from there, so I'll take a pass if you're willing to give one to me. I'm from Pennsylvania. I've aged out of nearly half of my life and half of my life in that state. I think I'm down to about 47%, but I'm not going to do the math.

Oh, you don't need a pass. I once heard that Woodstown was named after that family. I was asking MarketStEl if that was true. If it's not genealogy, he has far more sources than I have.

Since I don't know the Wood family genealogy, I can't say whether it is or isn't. But if there's a Jackanias Wood (or Jaconius Wood) in their family tree, then it is, for that's the Wood who Woodstown was named for when it was created out of Pilesgrove Township in 1882.

Thanks! I'll do some checking & report back.
