PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - The largest ever Wawa store has officially opened its doors in Philadelphia Friday morning.
Wawa's massive and unique new location sits just across the street from the liberty bell.
Ahead of Friday's grand opening for the 6th and Chestnut location, the man behind the design of the store says everything about the place is unique.
"We are really going for that coffee house feel," explained Adrian Cortez of Wawa Architecture and Design, "Even down to the seating lounge. This is the first Wawa with leather seating in it"
In the historic Public Leger building you may not even know you are in a Wawa other than it's signature terrazzo floors. The store even features two-story murals in an industrial art-deco style.
There are walls of fresh plants, huge new seating areas, along with their food and coffee you can't get anywhere else.
If you're looking to represent your favorite stop-and-go shop, you can now get Wawa hoodies, t-shirts and travel mugs.
The company says the store, one of more than 800 in six states and Washington D.C. and represents the growth of the company, as well as their love affair with the city of Brotherly Love.
