Wawa Applied to Sell Beer in Delco
Wawa currently sells beer in Virginia and Florida. Wawa wants to sell beer in Pennsylvania, but Pennsylvania’s super-antiquated liquor laws make that hard. It hasn’t stopped the goose from trying, though, as representatives from the ‘Wa appeared before the Concord Township Board of Supervisors on Tuesday seeking approval to begin selling six-packs at the store on Naamans Creek Road in Chadds Ford.” According to Philly.com, “residents at the hearing worried the plan might lead to raucous behavior or loitering,” you know, like what happens everywhere else they sell six packs of beer … or something. We must protect the puritanical nonsense of the PA State Liquor Code!
For real, though, allowing the Wawa in Chadds Ford to sell six-packs is a huge deal. If it goes through, who knows how long it’ll be before you can get your shortis and your tallboys in one trip. That’d be nice. And let’s be honest, it wouldn’t even increase the frequency of the average Delconian’s Wawa trips. I was at my parents’ house for two days last week and went to Wawa four times.
