Wawa opens 1,000th store in Camden County

Wawa kicked off its grand opening celebrations Thursday morning as it opened its 1,000th store in Camden County.

The new store is located at 1006 White Horse Pike in Oaklyn.

Local and state officials were present for the opening and helped store personnel welcome in new customers.

Grand opening celebrations included free, any size hot coffee all day, a pep rally with the Philadelphia Eagles cheerleaders along with Swoop and the Birds’ pep band, and Wawa’s signature Hoagies for Heroes hoagie-building competition.

The first 1,000 customers also received a limited-edition keepsake T-shirt.

In addition to the store opening, Wawa said it will be distributing $1 million worth of gift cards to seven of its national charity partners, including the American Red Cross, Check Out Hunger, Children’s Miracle Network, JDRF, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation, the Special Olympics and USO.
