Nothing lasts forever.
Not even Wawa's original store, opened 50 years ago on MacDade Boulevard in the Folsom section of Ridley Township.
Wawa is in the process of obtaining permits to open a "super Wawa" a little less than a half-mile away at MacDade and Kedron Avenue, company spokeswoman Lori Bruce said Monday.
The Delaware County-based company hopes to have permits in hand by spring 2015. The opening of the new store is tentatively planned for spring 2016.
"The original store would remain open," Bruce said, "until the new store opened its doors."
The 25 to 30 employees of the original store will have jobs at the new location, which could employ as many as 30 additional people because of the expanded size and food services offered.
