About 200 Conshohocken residents packed the Washington Fire House on Wednesday night to speak for and against a proposed Wawa store on Fayette Street between 11th and 12th Avenues. It was the third and final public hearing on the proposal, which opponents say would exacerbate traffic and ruin the small-town character of Conshohocken. At issue is a proposed amendment to the borough charter to allow the Wawa at a site zoned for office and residential uses. The Borough Council will vote on the proposed amendment April 17. Planners for the borough and Montgomery County have recommended rejecting the plan.

Two South Jersey men were arrested this week during a traffic stop in which Gloucester Township police say they found drugs and counterfeit money. Police say events began about 8:30 p.m. Monday during a motor vehicle violation stop on the Black Horse Pike at Clementon Ave, in the township's Blackwood section. The vehicle, which police did not describe, matched the description of a vehicle being used by men who were passing counterfeit bills at multiple area Wawa stores. Erik Ellison, 21 of Huntington Mews, Blackwood, and his passenger Robert A. Smith Jr, 49 of Newton Lane, Willingboro, were arrested on "numerous" outstanding warrants for their arrest.

THE DRIVER OF a bakery truck that sat in a Southwest Philly Wawa parking lot for nearly 40 minutes wasn't delivering bread - but police say he had dough in mind. Police on Monday arrested Keith Jones, 55, of Kingsessing, on charges that he stole 513 gallons of diesel fuel worth about $2,000 from the Wawa at Bartram and Island avenues on Feb. 4. Jones, operating a Stroehmann bread-delivery truck he'd purchased at an auction about two weeks earlier, siphoned the gas from a station ground pump into a large storage tank, police said.

Ah, democracy. Last month, I took in the Conshohocken Planning Commission hearing that was considering Wawa's application for a 4,000-square-foot gas and convenience store in the borough, at the unoccupied site of a former car dealership on Fayette Street. For two years, passions in the town have flared over the issue. Petitions have circulated for and against, voices have been raised and tears shed at normally sparsely attended public meetings, and there has even been a hilarious "We Want Wawa" Rage Against the Machinelike rock video posted on YouTube: You see free market retail rules all More than the roar of the crowd at a town hall.

THERE WAS no trumpet fanfare, no confetti thrown. When the new 7-Eleven opened Thursday at 10th and Filbert streets in Center City, passersby unfamiliar with the area would never know it was the store's first day of business, save for the sparkle of the countertops and a scribbled note taped to the door. That's partly because the convenience-store chain plans grand-opening celebrations a full month after actual openings, using the first month to fix glitches and get a feel for customers' buying habits.

About 100 shuttered Wawa stores have reopened over the past 24 hours, the convenience store chain said Wednesday, leaving only 81 of the company's 601 locations off-line due to storm-related problems. Most of the affected stores were in central and South Jersey, and a few in the Montgomery County area, spokeswoman Lori Bruce reported around lunchtime. Power outages forced the closure of several hundred Wawas as Hurricane Sandy slammed the New Jersey coast. "Once power is restored, our teams will move quickly to restock and open the stores to serve the community," Bruce said.

  For a convenience-store chain that takes the postal-carrier mantra to the retailing extreme - on the job in any weather, plus holidays - what happened to Wawa in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy can be called a crisis of unprecedented scope. Nearly a third of Wawa's 601 stores - 194 in all - were without power during the day Tuesday, most of them closed and in areas most affected by hobbled utility systems in New Jersey, Southeastern Pennsylvania, and Delaware. While Wawa was not alone in its struggle - Giant Food Stores said 33 of its supermarkets in the Philadelphia suburbs and as far west as Reading were open but subsisting on generators and ice-packed trucks in parking lots - Wawa's troubles were acutely startling.
