Wawa Closes Philly Stores Over ‘Safety’ Concerns

  • A spokesperson for the company said, “All associates from these two stores will be offered continued employment at Wawa. These two closures do not necessarily impact or limit the potential for future stores in Philadelphia County.”
  • Two Wawa locations are closing in the Center City portion of Philadelphia after the popular convenience store and gas station chain has experienced an increase of crime at its locations.
  • According to local news, a statement from Wawa released Friday read that the stores are closing due to “continued safety and security challenges and business factors.”
