Updated: Opening Timeframe Added For Wawa’s First Montgomery County Location

Updated to include additional information 
Construction continues to progress at the site of Montgomery County’s first Wawa and now an opening timeframe has been posted on its Google listing.

The upcoming convenience store/gas station is located at the site of the old Becraft Antiques (405 S Frederick Ave.) on 355, across from Gaithersburg High School (photos below).  The store added job listings on its website for Customer Service Supervisor,  Team Supervisor (Overnights), and Customer Service Associate for the new location late this past summer and an opening timeframe of “December” has been added to Wawa Gaithersburg’s Google listing. We have since received additional information stating that it’s more likely Wawa opens in early January.

We anticipate a more concrete date once December begins as Wawa includes their new store opening dates on its website at the beginning of each month, but as we should all know by now…there are often delays. A development application for a second Montgomery County Wawa has been submitted.

We originally reported the news of MoCo’s first Wawa back in May of 2019, with initial plans to open by the end of 2020. Now it appears Wawa may open approximately three years after originally planned.

What is Wawa? Wawa began in 1803 as an iron foundry in New Jersey. Toward the end of the 19th Century, owner George Wood took an interest in dairy farming and the family began a small processing plant in Wawa, Pa, in 1902. The milk business was a huge success, due to its quality, cleanliness and “certified” process. As home delivery of milk declined in the early 1960s, Grahame Wood, George’s grandson, opened the first Wawa Food Market in 1964 as an outlet for dairy products. Today, Wawa has become an “all day, every day stop for fresh, built-to-order foods, beverages, coffee, fuel services, and surcharge-free ATMs, and Boundless Convenience. A chain of more than 950 convenience retail stores (over 750 offering gasoline), Wawa stores are located in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Florida, and Washington, D.C. The stores offer a large fresh food service selection, including Wawa brands such as built-to-order hoagies , freshly brewed coffee , hot breakfast sandwiches , built-to-order specialty beverages , and an assortment of soups, sides and snacks.”
