Wawa, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, opened its new store in Loxahatchee Groves at 8 a.m. on Thursday, March 7. The store is located at 15475 Southern Blvd.

Dozens of Wawa fans were on hand as the doors were opened. The day was celebrated with T-shirts for the first 100 customers and free coffee for all before a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 8:30 a.m.

Festivities started at 7:45 a.m. with Wawa General Manager Valerie Damato doing the honors of counting down to the moment when the doors opened for the first time. Other festivities included Wawa’s signature Hoagies for Heroes hoagie building competition between local police and fire departments and an appearance by Wawa mascot Wally Goose.
