Beer sales could be coming to another Wawa in Delaware County, possibly Clifton Heights, writes Kevin Tustin for Daily Times.
The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board announced last week that the convenience store corporation has picked up its third liquor license this month, an expired license from a Clifton Height site.
There has been no announcement yet from Wawa on where the license would be used.
There is speculation the $132,000 license could be used where a new Wawa is being built at Baltimore Pike and Oak Lane at the Upper Darby-Clifton Heights border.
Upper Darby Mayor Tom Micozzie said that plans for the new Wawa did not include an option for liquor sales. Adding liquor would require a change of plans and a zoning application, since inside seating would be required, he said.
Wawa’s only Pennsylvania store selling beer is in Chadds Ford
Micozzie did not look favorably on having convenience store options to buy beer.
“Wawa is a good store, a corporate partner, but I’m not in support of these stop-and-go’s for beer at every location. If they went to blanket everywhere, there’s enough licenses in Upper Darby already,” said Micozzie.
