Wawa goes big in Philadelphia
While many retailers go smaller, Wawa is planning to open a large-format C-store in Center City Philadelphia.
According to NBC, the newest Wawa, located across from Independence Mall inside the Public Ledger building at Sixth and Chestnut streets, will be the largest Wawa in the country with 11,300 square feet of space. That is more than 2,000-square feet larger than its mega Washington, D.C. store.
"We want to reach new audiences in every location. In the historic district, large groups can come in and take a moment to enjoy the space," Wawa spokeswoman Lori Bruce said. "We are so happy to have it in such an amazing and historic area in Philadelphia. It is going to be one of the best so far."
