All good things must come to an end…
The original Wawa, which opened up in the Folsom section of Ridley Township in Pennsylvania, has officially closed its doors on Friday. Don’t worry too much though. They’re just moving to a bigger store location down the street.
Wawa started as an iron foundry in New Jersey in the early 1800s by George Wood. The decline of home milk delivery pushed his family to open a convenience store. In 1964, the first Wawa opened on MacDade Boulevard in Folsom on April 16.
Since its inception, Wawa has been serving smiles on people’s faces in over 700 locations in Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Florida and Delaware.
