Wawa Inc., of Media, will raise the minimum hourly wage it pays store workers to $10. The move comes amidst a tightening labor market, where there is now competition for workers at all levels, including low-wage workers, economist Joel Naroff told members of the MidAtlantic Employers' Association Friday. Also raising its minimum wage is Sheetz Inc., the Altoona-based convenience store chain. The company, with $6.9 billion in revenue and 17,000 employees, said Wednesday it would spend $5 million to increase wages.

It wasn't the mind-boggling Powerball jackpot, but a ticket sold at the Wawa store at 76 Springside Rd. in Westampton, Burlington County, won some lucky customer $2 million. "It was exciting," said Dan Steere, the store's assistant general manager. "Everyone was ecstatic that we sold one of the highest tickets," he said. Another ticket, sold in Chester County - at the Landhope Farms store in Kennett Square - was worth $1 million, Pennsylvania Lottery officials said. Two more $1 million tickets were sold in Lancaster and Northampton Counties.

The Margate firefighter and lifeguard convicted of shoplifting from a Wawa last month must forfeit both jobs, an Egg Harbor Township municipal judge ruled Friday. Ashton G. Funk, 34, of Northfield, was arrested Sept. 10 on a complaint of shoplifting from the convenience store in Margate. Funk was off-duty from his position as a firefighter and on the beach patrol when he was allegedly seen carrying away $7.98 worth of items without paying. Because the case involved a public employee, the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office took over the investigation and prosecution.

Mommy has a new wish. Besides Bradley Cooper. We're talking coffee. And I'm on a quest. I know, some people climb Everest. Others try to cure cancer. But all I want is a delicious cup of coffee that I can make myself, at home. Is that so much to ask? Evidently. Right out front, I have to confess that I love Dunkin' Donuts coffee. Sometimes I'll have Starbucks and other times Wawa, but my coffee soul mate is Dunkin'. We've been together longer than my two marriages combined.

YOU CAN take Charlie Saxton out of Bristol, Bucks County, but don't try taking Bristol out of Charlie Saxton. In from LA for the holidays, the 26-year-old actor ("Hung," "Betas") stopped by the Daily News in a brand-new Wawa hoodie and an old (kelly green) Eagles hat. Saxton plays roommate to the title character in "Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life," a sitcom premiering this weekend (8:30 p.m. Sunday, Fox29). He talked with Ellen Gray about his acting childhood and a few things that West Coasters just don't understand about Wawa.

PAPAL PILGRIMS love Wawa sandwiches. About 1.1 million people went through security magnetometers during the two-day celebration. And, oh, by the way, Pope Francis thinks the women in Mayor Nutter's administration rock. These were just some of the takeaways from September's World Meeting of Families celebration, according to Deputy Mayor Everett Gillison and Samantha Phillips, the city's director of emergency management. Gillison and Phillips, in a sit-down with reporters yesterday, detailed what went well and not so well during the global event in Philly: * Unlike a prior July Fourth celebration in the city, cellphones actually worked.

DEAR MAYOR-ELECT Kenney: I wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate you on your surprise, come-from-behind win this past week. I know it must have been a complete shock that you actually squeaked by the Republican candidate, given the scrutiny the Democratic voters in Philadelphia always give to their own. Fortunately, after a lot of serious concentration at the polls, your tenacity and welcoming message to those who disagree with you persuaded...

Two hours before a brass trio from the Philadelphia Orchestra played the fanfare from Rocky and Mayor Nutter promised a hoagie for Pope Francis, the line to enter the Wawa formed Friday morning down Broad Street. "Congratulations," a man in a suit said, as he opened the door at Broad and Walnut one minute before 8. Enthusiasts clutching free coffee and $2.99 Shorties christened a shrine to Wawa, rushed to completion ahead of the papal visit. Even after Wawa condensed its stock of city stores in favor of profitable pastures in Maryland, Virginia, and Florida, a cultlike following flocked to this new flagship - the first Wawa in Center City to open in decades.

Beer lovers and Wawa fanatics are one step closer to being able to carry out six-packs of beer with their hoagies and groceries from one Delaware County store. At a meeting Tuesday, the Concord Township Board of Supervisors announced its approval of Wawa Inc.'s request to sell beer at its store on Naamans Creek Road in Chadds Ford. The decision does not mean shoppers can start flocking to the store for brews. Wawa still needs approval from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board.

THE PHILLIES are in the basement. The Eagles are a major question mark. But at least we'll always have Hoagiefest. As president and CEO of Wawa, Chris Gheysens oversees the groovy annual discount-sandwich love-in, along with the chain's 695 stores (the new beachhead for expansion is Florida) and 23,000 employees. Gheysens, 44, is married with four children and visited Rome last month as part of the city's papal delegation, tasked with nailing down details for the pope's visit this September.
