Update – the Wawa is now open.
The Wawa on Butler Pike, which has been closed for a month for remodeling, was to be reopened this morning at 8:00 a.m. A line formed prior to the opening and eventually was dispersed when the Fire Marshall from Plymouth Township found an issue with the electrical system. The crowd was sent on their way and Wawa is now waiting for a part to arrive to fix the issue. Once the new part is in place, the Fire Marshall will reinspect and determine if the doors can open. We will provide an update once it opens.
The first people in line this morning were Henry Racich and his daughter Libby. For being first in line, Wawa gave Libby a hat and a milkshake.
In this photo you can see the line prior to 8:00 a.m.
