It's all over the news that this location is going to close as soon as a Super Wawa is built nearby. I really hope that the family that owns it finds a way to keep it, perhaps as a museum, because Wawa is iconic in the Delaware Valley. Perhaps it needs to be immortalized in a song, much like Stop and Shop in Jonathan Richman's "Roadrunner," and Ben Vaughn's "Lookin' for a 7-11." In any event, I hope this building is preserved.

Angelo Cataldi on WIP FM's morning show today was trying to drum up interest in saving this building because Wawa means so much to people.
