Was I the only who heard it was going to be a Wawa in the spring and summer of 2018?

There was an announcement to that effect in the Inquirer: https://www.google.com/amp/www.phill...ml%3famphtml=y

I don’t know if there have been any major changes of plan since.

WaWa should pick a location because i heard they are building the biggest WaWa ever around Independence Mall. I want Wawa to not be overkill.

I've been to a Sheetz and was NOT impressed.
I hear people in Western PA love it (sort of like SE PA likes Wawa) But I saw nothing that would make me want to patronize there. I'd go to a Royal Farms before I went to a Sheetz.....neither of which hold a candle to Wawa. I looove me some Wawa.

I'm a transplant and I just can't figure out why everyone likes Wawa so much? I've been to a number of stores and I don't see anything special. It's a convenient store with decent sandwiches and coffee, and everything else is about the same. The service is ok, nothing to celebrate, and the offerings are similar to every other convenient store I've been to. Are they better than 7-11? Yes. Would I go in one in Center City....probably never. I can get better food and coffee in so many other places.

Note: I'm not condemning it and I know there's history there. Just curious of why everyone goes.

I think Wawa used to be a fantastic store. I am going back 15+ years. They were a small local convenient store. They had less food options back then, but used higher quality lunch meat and ingredients. Most stores had a nice neighborhood vibe to them. That all began to change once the gas stations took off.

Fast forward to 2018, they are a gigantic national chain with overall crappy prepared food, however, they are convenient, generally nicer than most other quick stops, and their coffee is still good (and cheap).

I also find it ridiculous that a $10B company can't place a security guard in the CC Wawas to keep the thugs and bums from causing trouble. The one at Broad and Walnut actually has to chain the bar stools down at nighttime... like really?

Wawa followed the almighty dollar like most large companies do. They are becoming the Walmart/ Target of quick stops. I am glad they are still committed to the region though.
