Wawas on Barrier Islands Reopening

Many stores had been closed for repair of storm damage since Superstorm Sandy struck on Oct. 29.

Wawa hoagie lovers on Long Beach Island will no longer have to cross the Causeway bridge after this month, as several locations are set to reopen, according to a press release from corporate headquarters.

The Wawa locations in Beach Haven Terrrace and Ship Bottom sections had been closed after receiving substantial flood damage during Superstorm Sandy on Oct. 29, 2012.

In the aftermath of Sandy, Wawa took the opportunity to redesign seven stores on the Jersey Shore that were closed due to the storm’s impact.

The stores were reconstructed with new features that include:

  • New food service layout and food service innovations including built-to-order milk shakes and in-store ovens to bake rolls
  • Interior components brought up to new brand standards — including new tile throughout food service and beverage area
  • Newly designed Express Cases
  • All cabinetry and refrigeration cases upgraded and replaced

In addition, Wawa will further its ongoing commitment to aiding in the local relief effort by making a $1,000 donation per store to the Feeding America Food Bank located in each specific community.

While I am pleased to see some progress, can't wait until I have my home back.
