PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A Philadelphia and Delaware County icon may soon begin selling alcohol at more stores in the region. Wawa placed two winning bids for liquor licenses in the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board’s March liquor license auction.
Wawa paid the top price for Philadelphia and Middleton Township in Delaware County. The winning bids were $186,357 for Philadelphia and $160,357 for Middletown Township.
The company told Eyewitness News that there are no specific plans to share about what it will do with the licenses just yet.
According to the Liquor Control Board, top bidders have 14 days from the Notice of Selection to remit full bid payment to the state. Then, they have six months to file a license application with the PLCB.
There is only one Wawa in Pennsylvania that sells alcohol – Store No. 170 in Chadds Ford, Delaware County.
