WAWA, Pa. —Wawa is bringing curbside pickup to more than 30 stores this summer with expansion plans through the fall in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Wawa launched curbside pickup June 8 at two stores in Ewing, N.J., and Center Square, Pa. Customers can order for curbside pickup in person or in advance through Wawa’s mobile app.
Each store offering curbside pickup will have six to 10 designated parking spots for the service. It will be offered at specific hours, and consumer can pay with credit or debit cards, Apple Pay or Google Pay. Wawa associates will accept orders through handheld devices and then hand deliver the order to customers in their car.
“We are accelerating our plans to push our out-of-store services to a new level—from delivery and catering to new initiatives like curbside ordering,” said Steve Hackett, director of digital experience and solutions lab for Wawa.
Cumberland Farms, Westborough, Mass., and QuickChek, Whitehouse Station, N.Y., have also recently launched curbside pickup in response to the pandemic.
Wawa, Pa.-based Wawa operates in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Florida. It is No. 10 on CSP’s 2020 Top 202 ranking of U.S. c-store chains by number of retail outlets.
