Thanks to T. for sending: “Saw workers peeling back white window coverings to reveal the sign on my morning commute. I’m almost thinking it’s a leftover from wawa days, but they didn’t have “coming soon” signs when they were open

Wawa closed here back in June 2022.

Think Wawa could really be coming back or just an old sign?

Update from another reader:

“I live in that building. I believe that sign is from before the walls went up behind that window and before the outside of the windows were covered up, so an old sign.”

As an update, I walked past the store front again this morning and I think they may actually sell mushrooms? Not entirely clear…”
