Wawa plans for 2nd DC store — this time in Georgetown

WASHINGTON — Gas and convenience store chain Wawa will open another urban format convenience store in D.C., this time in Georgetown.

The second D.C. Wawa location is planned for the intersection of Wisconsin Avenue and Prospect Street. The chain previously announced it would be opening a store on 19th Street NW just south of Dupont Circle.

“Both sites provide optimal location for us to bring our unique offer to the D.C. area,” said Wawa’s Chief Real Estate Officer Brian Schaller. “This second location is one more step in Wawa’s overall D.C. expansion as we continue to look for sites and with a goal of opening numerous locations throughout the city over the next few years.”

Wawa says the Georgetown store’s design will meet the historical needs and requirements of the Old Georgetown Historic District.

Both stores are scheduled to open at the end of the year.

Wawa plans to open five to 10 stores in the D.C. market in the next two to three years. It says each of its urban format stores will employ close to 100 people.
