Wawa builds quality stores, big on customer satisfaction

June 20, 2013 

I am pleased to see that Wawa is coming to our area ("Wawa store and Little Giant Brewery OK'd by Council," Herald, June 13).

A convenience store chain that consistently ranks high in customer satisfaction, Wawa contributes to community value by building aesthetically pleasing outlets.

This stands in sharp contrast to 7-Eleven's stores whose garish green, orange and yellow striping and characterless architecture basically amount to advertising by eyesore.

Having contested proposed 7-Eleven developments elsewhere, I know that the company will provide upgraded facilities if governing authorities insist on them. Unfortunately, out of fear of being labeled anti-business for putting up perceived stumbling blocks, local officials often do not require these higher standards.

To Wawa's credit, they build quality stores to begin with.

Welcome Wawa.
