Gainesville Welcomes a Wawa Convenience Store to Archer Road

By Amanda Roland

The long-awaited and much loved Wawa Convenience Store has come to Gainesville today, June 17! The new store is located at 2373 SW Archer Road, and it is open for business.

Wawa Convenience Stores originated up North in 1964 by a family of dairy farmers in Wawa, PA, according to Wawa’s website.  Now, Wawa stores can be found in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Central Florida.

There will also be four other Wawa stores coming to Gainesville, and they will all be here by 2021. Wawa has also begun a “Clean Force” to ensure cleanliness and safety in their stores. You can visit their website to find out their social distancing requests for their stores.
