A brand new Wawa location is set to open on 3100 N. Boulevard, on the razed site that once housed Bill’s Barbecue. The Wawa is planned to be open before the end of the year and will be similar to the location on Staples Mill Road. The Wawa deal comes as the debate surrounding the future of North Boulevard and The Diamond ramps up. Mayor Dwight Jones’ office has scheduled six public meetings to get feedback from residents about how best to use the 60 acres of city-owned land around the aging baseball stadium. More info here.
