Wawa closed yesterday.
I didn’t think I’d care all that much, considering that the Rt. 9 Wawa hasn’t been able to shine the shoes of Union Hill Wawa. It’s basially Wawa 2. It’s closer to my house, and I’d still go to Union Hill if I wanted Wawa. But that’s neither here nor there. The point is that Wawa is Wawa, and you cant just come along and close a Wawa. What kind of mindset must someone have to feel motivated to close Wawa? That’s straight up monster mentality. It’s unheard of.
I’ve probably been in that Wawa only like 10 times before, no joke. It’s not a match for the probably 200 trips to Union Hill Wawa. But you can’t just take something away from me, from US, like that. The worst part of it all, they decided to change the name today in broad daylight, literally as I drove by. Like I drove past, and some asshole was up on a crane putting up the new name on the front of the building. Driving by to no longer see Wawa and to now see Pantry 1, whatever the FUCK that is, won’t ever be okay with me I don’t think. You wanna take away one of my Wawa legs from underneath me, fine. But do it the right way. That name needs to be changed at night, between 12am-5am. Nobody deserves to witness that. And I might have been one of the few to actually see the transformation, but I feel like it symbolized the whole town being kicked in its collective dick. I can’t believe they’re gonna just change the name right in front of me like that. I’ve never felt so much disrespect.
In all seriousness, their should have been at least a 2 day mourning period, where local citizens can go by and lay flowers, sit outside, reminisce, etc. Nope. And they didn’t just rip the bandaid off to make it quick and painless. No, they have to torture us, and humiliate us, and change the name in broad daylight. Rumor has it this new place is still a convenience store, but they stripped us of the Wawa brand and the memories hat came with it. Can’t replace those can ya?
