Wawa opens lat­est area store

— Wawa opened its lat­est Ne­wark-area store last week in the shad­ows of a now-shut­tered, smaller lo­ca­tion on Ogle­town-Stan­ton Road.

The new lo­ca­tion in­cludes 16 gas pumps and makes Wawa’s ever-grow­ing menu the fo­cal point by po­si­tion­ing the food counter in the cen­ter of the store.

A grand open­ing cer­e­mony fea­tured Wawa em­ploy­ees cheer­ing wildly and a hoagiebuild­ing con­test be­tween Delaware State Po­lice troop­ers and fire­fight­ers from Chris­tiana Fire Com­pany.

The store’s ad­di­tional 1,500 square feet al­lows it to ac­com­mo­date new menu op­tions such as made-to-or­der milk­shakes and roasted chicken. The Penn­syl­va­nia-based chain is also pre­par­ing to pi­lot cus­tom-made sal­ads, “gourmet” bak­ery items and a juice bar.

The new store is lo­cated at 4651 Ogle­town-Stan­ton Road on a par­cel of land for­merly owned by Bank of Amer­ica. It joins Chick-fil-A, which opened ear­lier this year.

Its pre­vi­ous lo­ca­tion at Omega Shop­ping Cen­ter, built in the mid-1980s, is now up for lease.
