Wawa's Flagship Store in Philadelphia Will Open on Friday

Any Wawa fans out there?  

Anyone who has been part of the Gilder-Lehrman "Thirteen Colonies" seminar at Princeton knows that "Wawa" is the Lenape word for "goose."  

But it is also a great convenience store.

On Friday Wawa will open a 4000 square-foot store at the corner of Broad and Walnut Streets.  Here is what Wawa fanatics can expect:

This Friday, September 18 at 9 a.m. the new Wawa flagship store at Broad and Walnut streets will open its doors to the public. The new store is opening a full two months early in order to serve folks in town for the Pope’s visit to Philadelphia and World Meeting of Families.
The new flagship is Wawa’s most progressive store design prototype to date, with more than 4,000 square feet of space.
It’s truly one-of-a-kind with special design aspects like a corner entrance with a bronze canopy hanging above, floor-to-ceiling windows so guests can peek into the food preparation area and other designs that serve as an ode to the historic building that houses the shop.
The Broad Street store is also the first-ever location that has bar seating, too.
See you there!
