The days of going to the Wawa to pour yourself some coffee before going to work, or hitting up the soda machine to supplement lunch are over, at least for now, writes Victor Fiorillo for Philadelphia Magazine.
In deference to public health and curtailing COVID-19, Wawa no longer offers self-service coffee.
Now customers will have to tell a Wawa associate what kind of coffee they want and how they want it. Self-serve sodas, Icees, cappuccinos and iced coffees are gone, too.
If you want a doughtnut, you’ll find it wrapped in plastic.
“As the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve, Wawa is doing everything we can to support the communities and customers that rely on us every day,” reads a statement on Wawa’s website.
In order to stay vigilant in the fight against the virus, Wawa stores previously 24 hours will now close between 2 and 3 a.m. for “additional cleaning, sanitizing and restocking.”
The good news is you can still get a Meatball Shorti at 1 a.m., a breakfast sandwich to go with your full service coffee and an Italian Classic for lunch.
