“It has been closed since mid-March, undergoing an expansion and renovation,” says Lori Bruce, public relations manager for the Wawa chain.

She says the goal was to reopen the store at 17th and Arch before the Fourth of July.  She says that although much of the holiday traffic is tourists, the store’s customer base is varied.

“There is a large office building, obviously, the Comcast building, across the street,” she tells KYW Newsradio, “but part of the building that we’re located in is, I believe, residents as well.”
