The area's first Wawa (fuel, convenience store, food market, and coffee shop) store will be coming soon to the corner of SR 100 and Bulldog Drive. A building permit for the new store was issued August 28th with a contractor stated construction value of $888,000. Wawa paid a combined $137,114 for permitting and impact fees.
